The reception staff was nice and staff very willing to assist with the luggage. The internet in the restaurant was "temporarily not available". The wireless internet in the room is just plain too expensive (90 Rand for 2 hrs)... Why free television and not free internet? Breakfast was mediocre. Not wow. Didn't discover the english breakfast before the next day (it's a bit hidden).
The room was fine, though the cockroach found alive and walking (4 cm american cockroach) was plain disgusting. Upon reporting it at the front desk, the receptionist pulled up her nose for disgust as well, but only "informed housekeeping".
Won't stay there again.
