The hotel is located in Parktown which is not a great area to stay in if you are on vacation. I consult at an office just down the road so it is convenient.
The overall atmosphere is of a hotel with some former glory. Now it is faded and looks rather tired and tacky. Some rooms have been modernized like the one I stayed in but earlier this year stayed in one that was not.
Buffet dinner is overpriced but breakfast was basic and as long as you can find a seat-okay.
Staff are polite bordering on disinterested.
Stay again? Yes as there are no real other alternatives.
