clean hotel, attentive staff, good food but the hotel and rooms are very plain and basic. Ok for a night or two but the location is not good for walking or sightseeing. OK for business but not holiday

Nice place surrounded by green fields for bowling contests. The staff is tremendously kind and always smiling. The restaurant is really good serving international food. Enjoining breakfast outdoor and close to the swimming pool is just a wonderful way to start a beautiful day even on a business trip. I would STAY here for longer.

Despite warnings about the area and the unexciting appearance of the hotel we had a very comfortable stay. The hotel was built in 1937 and, despite several modernisations, this showed in some respects e.g. wiring in ducting on walls. All rooms are suites which meant we had a large sitting area and kitchenette but this meant the bedroom and bathroom...

After booking this hotel then reading the reviews afterwards, myself & a friend were very apprehensive about staying at this hotel. We stayed here for 2 nights after doing Kruger and waiting to catch a flight out the country. We loved our stay here and think that the previous reviews are very harsh! We did not go out as 1)...

I've been staying at the Parktonian hotel quite regularly over the past two years and whilst everything about this hotel is not perfect there has been a gradual improvement in all aspects of the Hotels's offer.

The hotel has potential but it isn't being run in any respectable manner. The decor in the rooms is very old. There was some kind of void in the room I stayed in with a piece of plywood to cover it over. The service in the lobby is very inconsistent and lacks professionalism.
