Never thought id enjoy rustic, but it was amazing... The hospitality was top class, we really felt like the only guest in a fully booked hotel. The room was on the smallish side (which really means intimate).... Crisp clean sheets that felt like Egyptian cotton. Hotel's location is literally 5 feet away from the city centre so it is ideal...

First this hotel is laid out very strangely. You get 1 room key - regardless of how many people are staying in the room. When we asked for another key, we were charged for it. The rooms are ok but very dated. The doors to the hotel rooms are very old, hollow doors and with one good kick would be...

The DSTV was down in all the rooms the whole weekend.

The hotel just misses the mark. On checking in we asked for a room with a fridge. The receptionist made much noise with some unknown other to bring the fridge from room x to room y and we assumed it would be in order... two hours later nothing had happened. We were then informed that only family rooms have fridges...
