I did'nt know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. My room was on the 2nd floor facing the river and had very nice modern furnishings, fantastic bed and en enormous bathroom with shower and bath. I was extremely comfortable and loved the view from the balcony. The aircon could be set to perfect temperature, there was a mini bar...

I had the unfortunate opportunity to stay two nights here. The room on the top floor facing the street provided a constant exposure to cars blaring radios and revving their engines into the wee hours of the morning - about 3AM. The room was in need of an upgrade. The rugs were extremely stained. The shower tiles around the drain...

The booking agent made a mess up of our booking but luckily it was sorted out by Izelle, the Hospitality manager. Comfortable stay and just love the "George Clooney" coffee in the rooms. Wish the water pressure in the showers were better but it is clean and nice

We hoped for a relaxing weekend with some luxury. What a disappointment!! I'm not sure whether the rating system in ZA is different, but this place is far away from the given 4 Stars and definitely not on Mariott Standard. Check in was friendly but no assistance with luggage at all. The room was noisy since facing the road and...

After a long trip from Pretoria, we arrived at this great hotel. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. We were given an upgrade to their best available room which happen to be a suite on the top floor, with a complementary cheese board and red wine.
