Okay this a medium priced chain hotel - a sort of South African equivalent of the UKs Premier Inns, but where as Premier Inns have really got their act together in terms of service and value, (Honestly a UK hotel that doesn't rip you off and treats you as a valued customer!) this branch is a very poor advertisement for the brand. The hotel is an attractive building, and the guy at the front door even greets you in a pith helmet, but the next impression you get almost wants you to turn tail. The team at reception, without exception in my experience of two visits, are sullen and unwelcoming. They barely make eye contact, they make no attempt to welcome you or acquaint you with the hotel's facilities, and if the answer to your question is a negative they just shake their heads and don't even verbalise their response. The rooms are okay and well maintained but the all important impression is that you're just another customer and they don't care whether you enjoy your stay or contemplate a return visit. I certainly won't be back!
