“Not for us”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Being a national tourist guide and co-owner at Madikela Tours the history, charm and location of The Halfway House Hotel appealed to us. The rooms are recently refurbish and gives a great impression. Staying two nights make one realize that it needs a few finishing touches though.
The food in the bar downstairs is great, but it seems indirectly smoking is highly promoted. Throughout the day one can see staff members in uniform sitting in the court yard take a smoke break. In the " non smoking" lounge there are no tables available to eat at. For a sit down meal one will have to sit at a table within the smoking area. Having breakfast the first morning I also noticed a gentleman smoking in the kitchen wile preparing coffee. When I asked one of the personnel if I a am seeing correctly she nonchalant replied that he is the owner and the matter was ignored. Needless to say we cancelled breakfast for the next morning.
The noise levels are high and continue late inti the night( Friday).this makes it difficult to get a good nights rest. Having to travel 400-500km the next day makes me think that, even though Halfway House Hotel has got so much appeal, it is not suitable for our clients.

Stayed August 2014, travelled on business

We weren't very sure of what to expect from what sounded like a vintage hotel. Very clean and big rooms with nice bathroom. But we had difficult time finding a plug to charge our phones.

The bar and restaurant are good when it comes to value for money but food wasn't as such exceptional. The best part is that if you don't have much time, you can just walk downstairs to the bar to experience local nightlife.

Stayed in the honeymoon suite, large and comfortable. However, hardly slept with the noise from cars parked outside by patrons from the bar. Also had ladies of the night knocking on our door till 2:30 am!

Great rooms, but don't try and sleep there. You will hear drunk people till 4 o clock in the morning fighting, screaming, spinning their cars and laughing. I think they should decide between hotel or a nightclub. Very disappointing.

We only went to the half for lunch. The food was great, well prepared, tasty and very good value for money. We were not staying there but I think the rooms around the bar area might be a bit noisy. They also seem to have a very nice restaurant on the premises - Annabels

The rooms was spacious and beautiful. The courtyard setting stunning but the noise level with people partying a bit difficult when travelling with family especially when trying to sleep. When travelling as a couple by all means the place to be! Cosy, fires burning in courtyard with music, inside bar and a stunning formal restautant. See you again. Thanks Julian for good service.

Room Tip: Noise levels high.
