I've stayed at the Maduzi Hotel twice now. On both occasions, I've travelled alone with the aim to just do a bit of sopping and mainly chill out. First time, I had a few niggles. I wasn't sure if I actually got my upgrade that I was supposed to by booking via the SLH and was a bit annoyed on one of the days as there was a meeting in the lounge area with people I can only assume were nothing to do with the Maduzi Hotel (going by the McDonalds cups they had) so I couldn't go in there. It didn't seem right that paying guests couldn't use the public area.
On my 2nd stay, I got my upgrade. Again, I just wanted to relax for a few days and that's exactly what I did. Occasionally I left the hotel for a bit of shopping and food, but I was happy just to stay there and read. On my 1st morning, I slipped in the shower but the staff were so helpful and attentive in patching me up. Even when I returned to my room later, non-slip mats had been put into the shower.
On both visits, I've found the communal areas to be quite cold in temperature. Maybe the staff don't notice it as they are moving around constantly. I always noticed it when I was having breakfast, at the bar or even in the lounge area.
The room on both stays were immaculately clean, breakfast was scrumptious and I really felt completely at home. My only niggle on my 2nd visit was that there just wasn't enough staff on at breakfast. Sometimes I would sit for ages waiting to get someone's attention. It wasn't that they were lazy - just that they were either at the reception desk, making drinks or doing something in the kitchen. On one morning, I was eating my breakfast very slowly as my bacon was burnt and I wanted to change it. I was half way through my breakfast before the waitress came past. She said she'd get me some fresh bacon, so I asked her if she could keep what was left on my plate wam until the bacon was ready. Later on, she came back with a whole new breakfast for me! I was highly embarrassed at having so much food (but also secretly pleased)! It really was extremely tasty!
But in saying the above, nowhere is going to be exactly perfect, because each guest has different tastes and different needs. But in my opinion, in comparison with many other hotels I have stayed in, the Maduzi is without a doubt my favourite. It's extremely clean and comfortable, the staff are so so helpful and friendly, there is complimentary tea and coffee available all day and it just has such a homely relaxing feel to it. I can't wait to visit again!
