On arrival we can park underground with a R10 fee on first visit not refundable. Thereafter you can use you room card to scan for parking. Very good.
Reception is welcoming with good staff serving. Generally all staff are great. Smiley. A young lady on particular was impressive. Voicing around in different roles. See her at breakfast. At reception. She helped with room change. Management were proud of her which shows there interest in customer service.
Rooms were small. Way too small for two people. Showers need more attention to avoid shower water spills but you can just call maintenance as they know how to fix with beading of the glass door. We changed room from one with lovely balcony to one without as we needed that space for our luggage. Long stay I would not suggest. Short stay yes. Business stay yes.
Breakfast is awesome. It's a typical South African and British breakfast. But elevated in a grand way. You can order latte's and other warm drinks. Desserts sections is great. Egg station was fantastic. Best omelettes ever. Would have liked more chicken or lamb sausages but my tries failed. Saying there for 8 days split 4+4 means we needed variety. And I guess we got it.
Did not use facilities much. With Montecasino next door we were always busy meeting friends there. The views from lobby bar lounge are lovely.
Just a feel good hotel but with small rooms. With bigger rooms (unlikely) and tweaking some maintenance issues I will give it a fiver. For this visit its just a well earned 4.
