Stayed here for four nights for the third test of the British Lions Tour. Lovely Hotel, very big rooms, satellite TV, including Sky News which was great to be updated on things back home, mostly!!!. We managed to get a fridge into our room based on reading a previous review also which was handy. The hotel also has a swimming pool although it was a little cold for us to use it. Two big double beds in the room which suited my brother and myself. Bathroom was spacious and the room also had a safe which is pretty much standard.
The food at breakfast was very good with both hot and cold options. The bar was a little expensive if you wished to drink spirits as we did towards the end of the evening. Beer is very reasonable though. The Hotel run a shuttle bus for us to some locations which was ideal, especially after the 3rd Test, which was of course a deserved victory at last!!
Not too keen on the area directly outside the Hotel and did not feel comfortable walking too far. Hadfield Sq was ok although I think the taxi driver we had was a little geographically confused. Less said the better on that one.!!
The staff in the hotel were also very friendly and couldnt do enough for you. It felt like it was their duty to ensure that you had a good time. It was a pleasure to stay there, as it was throughout all the Hotels during our 3 week stay in South Africa.
Must give a mention to Johann, Alfie, and Francois who looked after my brother and I like we were a member of their family. It it was not for these three people our stay would not have been the same. Great Hotel, Great service, Superb Hospitality, Good Food, Indifferent Location.
