We recently spent 5 nights here. The location is great, 15 minute safe walk to the V&A. The accommodation is outstanding with loads of space including a lounge area and full kitchen facilities. We had a number of issues (all of which were outwith the direct control of the staff onsite) which were never satisfactorily resolved but Zilungile and her...

Quality of employees very poor, they don't give you right information to get arround, the map of the hotel very confusing. When we checked in we had double room and there was a guest in the room, the manager on duty didn't know how to deal, at the same time many complaints from other guests at the reception. Needs urgently...

I'm not sure I've ever stayed in a hotel with nicer,friendlier staff, and I've stayed in 100's of them. That said the hotel interior itself is rather drab and tired. It's situated in the business area of town, and unless your doing business in the town centre, I would stay somewhere else. It's too dangerous to walk at night in...
