As I indicated on the previous response , the establishment needs a face lift. Sleep quality was not excellent. I made mention of my experience with one of the beds in room 148 and the bathroom. The furniture is pealing off

Such leisure and comfort increases focus on the business at hand and contributes at successful completion of the assignment. A small bar fridge is needed in the room , if not stocked, at least provides for cooling of beverages and fruit beneficial to a weary traveller.

Quite a pleasant surprise and a jewel of a place to stay in Mthatha. It is everything you can expect from a Tsogo Sun hotel. However, it would help if the bathrooms are refurbished soon. Short of that, definitely my preferred place of accommodation in the future.
