Not value for money.Food is generally poor. Cleanliness not up to standard. Admin staff friendly. Location good- near rank if one does not have own transport, near shopping malls where one could eat out.

The reception was excellent, took the time to explain the changes and ask the right questions about room preference. Asked about assistance and even about family that was now on this trip . Room was spotless and finally TV was clear. Well done Gabs.

Although under renovation the hotel offers a comfortable environment for business and leisure guests. The staff are friendly and willing to assist even a fastidious guest, The only glitch was the delay in fixing a wardrobe door, though it requires getting a bigger screwdriver to fasten a loose screw.

Relative to its price, this hotel is not good. But it's not an entirely bad place to stay. Staff are friendly enough. It is less clean and well maintained than average. Food is generally poor. Pool is tiny. My bed was very uncomfortable. Two mismatched singles with separate mattresses stuck together.

under renovation, Business centre was closed for the weekend, which is tricky if away on business.However, the food is good and the beer is cold. Friendly staff. Squash, gym and tennis courts available. a little over priced but all in all a very good stay. The casino is small but quaint.

I always enjoy my stay at Avani. Whilst the rooms are getting, they are always clean and tidy. I am looking forward to the refurbishment later in the year. Definitely try the beef at Mahogany. Service is slow, but the meals are definitely worth the wait. Potato shortage at the moment means no mash or boiled potatoes, but the vegetables...

Overall a very good place to stay, the rooms were well equipped and the hotel itself centrally located with all amenities and the city centre. The staff really went above and beyond. Hotel served good breakfast promptly and even offered the option to get breakfast delivered if you couldn't make it downstairs for whatever reason. The rooms however did need...

I liked my stay. A very motivated personnel and the combinations of food is divine!! The room was clean and tidy providing all necessary facilities to make you feel at home. Management should focus on the physical fitness facilities and sometimes the combined shower/bath tub set up is not really practical.
