This is a boutique hotel formerly known as The Grace. It is is not very large but very well appointed. Stayed there for four nights and had an in-house conference for two of those days.
Check in is smooth and quick. The only problem I had was the insistence with taking authorization on my card for my stay as well as R500 per night for incidentals. If this did not happen then the hotel would have insisted on cash for any service provided that was not bed and breakfast. I acceded but very reluctantly.
After checking in and before I unpacked I tested the wifi in the room I had been assigned and once it was found not to be working, David from Front desk found me another room and ensured I was sorted before we moved my things. It took a couple of hours, but was eventually sorted.
Being a boutique hotel, 54 on Bath can offer special services that other larger hotels might not be able to. Free ironing or steaming of 3 items of laundry every day; in room breakfast conveniently delivered at a time picked by the guest at no additional cost; a gym bag with a water bottle, water, towel, MP3 player for gym sessions (this more than made up for the location of the gym).
I ate at the 4th floor restaurant twice and ate meals provided during the conference, all which were very well prepared and delicious. Room cleanliness was excellent. The one stop service was fast and very efficient; requests were responded to very quickly. Conference facilities were very good and more than met our needs.
Special mention goes to Lebo in housekeeping who took very good care of my clothes and David at Front office sorted me out on wifi and quickly changed my room. I would definitely return.
