Good location poor room

Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Make the room larger and provide some privacy without losing natural light.
The location and staff of this hotel are excellent. There is also excellent secure parking on site. Unfortunately the room was minute. You couldn't lay out a bag any where without blocking movement around the room. The bathroom door wouldn't open fully because the bed was in the way. If you wanted to watch the tv (which we didn't) it was mounted on the wall at right angles to the bed. One wall was a full length patio style sliding glass doors which opened out onto the main corridor. To maintain privacy the curtains needed to be drawn resulting in no natural light in the room. Fortunately we spent little time in the room so got by.

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything and in particular to welcome guests
Location: very well located and close to all the restaurants and shops - walking distance
this guest house is absolutely to avoid: people are not friendly, the house has no charm, the pool is the size of a tub, the breakfast is poor...however the room is clean . We went to several guest houses during our vacation in SA, and this one was very disappointing . We would not recommend it however it is very well located close to a very good restaurant ' THE BIG EASY' that we recommend

Pay a little more and STAY ELSEWHERE. Not worth it

Pros: Checking out of the place
Cons: Smell of the hallways
Location: Good location. Easy walk into town
Guest house was very tired inside. We often stay in basic but clean rooms. This is NOT it. The room does not feel clean - slight stains on the sheets and towels, old soap from previous guest found in shower, smell of garbage in the dark hall ways, dingy floors. Really bad wifi reception in room (beside breakfast room). One of the staff was nice and friendly enough. The other receptionist was indifferent in her approach.

Die Zimmer sind sehr einfach gehalten, die Einrichtung, vor allem das Badezimmer, eher veraltet.
