For any families or person that might book this hotel for its pool and sun deck, forget it. Don’t bother. Whilst it has uninterrupted views across the city the actual pool is nothing more than a plunge pool. If you wish to lay in the sun you’ll be nothing more than a metre

Dear 437angelinel It is always appreciated to hear from each of our Guests. I am glad we were able to meet you expectations. I am also glad that our staff delivered on our promise to each of our Guests. I certainly do hope that you will visit us again. I hope by then we will be in an even greater position to surpass your expectations as we unveil the Stratos which will be our Roof-Top Pool, Bar, Restaurant and Grand-Ball Room. Once again, thank you so much. Hope to have you again soon. Regards TK Nyandoro - Rooms Divisions Manager

The ambiance and overall client service was great. Stayed there on the 3rd of March and the room needed some attention, but when I stayed there again on the 17th, in a different room it was flawless. The food is great and the service is excellent. They were accommodating in the

Dear johanvR1782IW Thank you so much for such a positive review. Our genuine drive continues to be to ensure that we offer the highest standard of service excellence for our Guests. I do sincerely apologize for some of the air-conditioner glitches. Our new energy conservation system is quite sensitive to any windows opening. We are aiming to ensure to communicate more efficiently to our Guests. Although we have not had any issues at the loading zone, the point you bring is really important. There is a security guard and our surveillance cameras are also placed there. However, we will certainly discuss how we can go further in making this better. Regards TK Nyandoro - Rooms Divisions Manager

Dear Guest, Thank you kindly for the review posted. Please accept my most sincere apology for the inconvenience caused. I have investigated the issues raised and the door lock had a battery that was dislodged, probably from the door being closed too hard by the last person to leave the room before your arrival. The aircon operates perfectly but being connected to our power management system, the unit will shut off automatically if the window is opened. Upon my inspection of the room I found the window not completely closed and the sensor thus not activated that will reactivate the AC. I do apologize for the discomfort during your stay and will be applying some info stickers to the windows to avoid a repeat of this issue. I have brought your observations about breakfast to the attention of our Food and Beverage Manager and the Executive Chef for remedial action. With our refurbishment completed and the addition of some fantastic new facilities for our guests I would like to ensure you that we also closely focus on service and guest satisfaction and I would like to welcome you again for a relaxing problem free stay. Thank you very much for your patronage and look forward to see you again, Warm Regards, Rudie Putter General Manager

Bonjour, est-ce qu'il y a un sèche-cheveux dans la salle de bains ? Merci !
"We were on the 3rd floor, nice views and quiet. Northside."
"316 is adjacent to a staff room which has a heavy door that periodically slams shut in the middle of the night."
"Ask for a room on a higher floor: more quiet and better view !"
"Perhaps on a lower floor so that you can use the stairwells when the lifts are busy."
"Views to the East have the best views."
