The room that was initially offered to me was smelly. The capert had just been washed and the chemicals and the smell of dampness made it hard for me to stay in the room. I had to request another room because by evening I could not bear the smell anymore.
The room that was offered to me was a smoking room, but it did not not smell of cigarettes. Was impressed with that. The aircon that was in the new room was also a lot quiter. The first room had a noisy aircon.
Wifi is great. Initial connection is a bit of a pain with a snail pace. But once you connect, its workable speed. You get 500mb and if you're a frequent guest member you get an additional 500mb.
Fruit salad was a bit of a disappointment. Some fruits that were used in it were off. Gave it a bit of a sour taste. The rest of the breakfast was great.
Riverside Mall is across the street, so is the casino. Mbombela stadium is also less than 5km from the hotel. The airport is less than 20 km from the hotel. Its quite a centralised hotel for most of your tourist attractions.
Their reception area is fantastic, great wifi speed from there. The area is very welcoming.
