Its a big old hotel which i suppose was one the Jewel of Potchefstroom. The rooms is comfortable enough but the whole hotel in my opinion is due for an upgrade and some modernisation. The air-conditioning must be as old the hotel itself with water leaking onto the carpets, which was not fixed when reported. There a subtle smell of...

There is a large lounge where they serve tea and coffee for the conference rooms but they allow people to smoke in here. If you are a non smoker you cannot use this room comfortably as the smell of smoke hits you as you walk in. They did tell me this is a designated smoking area but it does not...

I have a different experience than some of these other folks. Maybe my expectations were lower but I found the place to be clean, the food good and the staff extremely friendly. Yes the rooms are old but I didn't have a hot water problem. I also was there for this World Powerlifting Competition and it was strange warming up...

One good thing was that the rooms and bathrooms were clean however, the decor was extremely outdated. No safe in the room, if there was a safe there was no key available to use and we were told this was because they got stolen (!!!). The intermittent hot water and lack of water pressure was a common occurrence. The reason...

Shocking. Hasn't been updated or worked on in decades. No hot water at first and when it did get fixed, it had no pressure so ..... no shower! Dingy smokey bar! Original bookings were messed up so some group members were moved out - lucky them! Friendly staff - I think the place relies on them

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Joburg, Potchefstroom area. It is very, very dated, old, dark and depressing. The only thing this hotel had going for it was the friendly staff in the dining room. We booked accommodation months in advance for a double room, upon arriving they were overbooked and after some complaining they...

If you use Tripadvisor to find accommodation, chances are that you will be far from satisfied with the Elgro. It is dated and has definitely not aged gracefully. Long bland & cold passages, well-worn furnishings, cramped, spartan rooms, a dungeony, smoked-filled bar and a dark, depressing & worn dining room. The first room they put me in on the ground...

Never stay here. It is dirty, the rooms smell awful, the water doesn't work in the shower, the toilet seats are losing their covering. It is absolutely disgusting! Not even special requests were attended to, when I asked a few people if breakfast could be served 30 minutes earlier as I was attending an early meeting!
