Nice Friendly Hotel !Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: Food, Bar - Comfortable and clean bed - lovely bathroom ! Helpful staff... They were kind and went out of their way to assist.
Cons: Keeping rooms fresh...
Location: Good Location - close to "The Workshop" small Mall. Not particularly safe at night but taxis available which were all fine.
Had to change room on arrival as it was a bit smelly but other offered room was not perfect but after opening the windows it improved ! It was a non-smoking room (all of the rooms are) but maybe a smoker had stayed there - I'm not sure. Bathroom was lovely and clean - Shower effective and hot ! Food in the restaurant was excellent, reasonably priced and the staff attentive. Bar very nice apart from loud music Friday ("It's always like this at the w/e Sir!") other evenings fine. Staff went out of there way to make a sandwich when I arrived late on Saturday after an event. A very nice touch. Breakfast excellent and on Sunday they put on a special runner's breakfast at five which was also superb ! Laundry service was cheap and quick. After a day I settled in and was very pleased to be there - the Hilton was three times the price so value for money. I will stay there again for sure next year - nice friendly and clean hotel. Liked it very much - home from home...

Except room size and location nothing's good!Posted Jun 4, 2015 on Hotels
I went for this hotel based on the reviews on hotels.com and the superb secret discount offered, however my experience was bad. TV remote did not worked, AC did not cool room sufficiently,worst thing is hotel did not do anything of above two things inspite of my two reminders to them! Breakfast was decently good but when I inquired for dinner they told R200 for hardly 5-6 items! Hotel is quite historical but very torn out and it seems owner is not inerested in renovating it. Rooms are big and location in city centre. Sorry, wont go again!

Perfect Pre-Comrades AccommodationPosted Jun 2, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed the night before the Comrades Marathon, perfectly located next to the Comrades start. Loved the history of the hotel and the staff were very friendly.

zentrale Citylage, gut. charme der 70-80er Jahre.Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: Lage, antiker Stil, nobel.
Cons: Problem: Wie kann man ein traditionelles Nobel-Hotel modernisieren?
Location: Das Personal warnt, bei Dunkelheit durch die Stadt zu gehen. Bring- und Hol-Service anbieten.
schwarze und weiße Gäste, gute Mischung. Etwas alte Pracht, eine subtile Renovierung tut not. Netter, bemühter Service. Hilfsbereite reception.

Overall satisfactoryPosted Jan 6, 2014 on Hotels
The stay was okay, rooms were quiet big and spacious, TV was old model, hotel is too old for the new comparison 4 star hotels. location was not good at all, there was no control on the parking as any one can go out without slips. so even if you dont pay, you can park for free. breakfast was extreme disappointed, very limited option. you cannot have even omelette. overall satisfied with few disappointments.
