My experience was not great. Firstly the staff forgot to return my drivers licence and credit card when I checked in, causing problems for me later in the day. Secondly the hotel is extremely noisy, and rooms badly designed. I was in room at end of passage far from reception, but could still hear phone ring and door bell go all night.
At 2:15am the night guard was obviously away as for 20minutes some poor guest was stuck outside dining doorbell, shouting, and trying to phone to get in - terrible!!!
When I wanted to check out and make my flight, the receptionist was not there (10am normal check out time?) and the assistant could not log in to the system so had to wait twenty minutes again.
For R1500 a night, there are far better hotels with far faster internet too (max speed 55kb/s)!!!!
