I stayed at Halyards over a year back, as part of week-long workshop. The hotel has some things going for it: it's relatively cheap; the breakfast and lunches are very nice (a new chef had just arrived at the time) and the location on the Kowie River is great. However, the room I was in had no view at all - other than of a wall with barbed wire topping it. It was also small, and had clearly been occupied by a smoker. Futhermore, there were some maintenance issues needing attention.
The hotel aspires to host workshops, but at that time WiFi coverage was only available in the (small) lobby - this may have changed - and this frustrated a lot of the workshop attendees.
All in all, if I were to stay here again, I'de make very sure which room I had beforehand, because some of the rooms are decidedly unappealing.More
