I got off a 13 hour flight from the UK, hired a car and drove to this hotel. I walked in and found a lot of building work that had closed a lot of the public areas of the hotel which wasn't a great first impression. The welcome from the staff was great, although we wern't offered any help with our luggage after our long flight.
Our suite was really nice, everything was exactly as you'd want, clean, tidy etc. Bathrooms were fantastic.
It was a shame we looked out on the road where there were cars sounding their horns constantly. We also overlooked a bar that played very loud music until late. We had hoped for some sleep after traveling for so long!
Free drinks/snacks were served in the lounge between 5 - 7 which was a really nice idea, this is where my son discoved that he liked Biltong !
We ate a meal at the Broadwalk just down the road, which was great, the watershow was really impressive and unexpected. There was a free shuttle from the hotel but it was only a 2 minute walk. The swimming pool is nothing like the pictures - unfortunately.
So, great hotel, shame about the building work and the busy road.
