    We stayed over the Easter holidays with our 11 month twin girls, the hotel was stunning, clean, accomodating and extremely friendly staff. The breakfast was lovely every morning. Will definately be a place to stay next time we visit kzn.

    Fabulous

    The service great, the rooms while small were adequate, bed very comfortable. The food was great. Didn't enjoy the sausages at breakfast but I'm an Escort fan!We really enjoyed our stay and will stay there again.

    Sausages at breakfast.

    What I liked about the hotel was the suite suited our family requirements, and the hotel is central.

    This hotel seems to have alot of party's, the noise levels were totally ridiculous, we travelled with 18 month twins and needed to get away, they could not sleep the music blaring, windows rattling, the TV on maximum and we could not even hear each other talking, the management on duty did not respond to two calls, they could not respond as a result of not hearing me... until I personally went down to complain,the party continued....we could not even use the pool as it seemed to be a hired event....there is a lack of service for room service. The day we left the lights in the bathroom went out, (no fault of anyone in particular)...but really...we did not even bother calling to have it replaced. Their own staff complained about the noise.... Rather annoyed....Our week-end getaway was not a great experience!

    Very good

    A la Carte menu was good and food delicious. Room was 4star quality and lovely furninshings. Staff at reception was quick and efficient, as this was a busy time of the year.

    Hot food cold at every breakfast. Cheesecake from kitchen (not available in display) was warm. Pool area waitron service poor. Really takes an effort to draw a waitron's attention. Tv remote did not work. Tv, mirror and bath was not clean. Noise from air conditioning units at restaurant/pool area very disturbing.

    The location was good as it was near my family.

    The hotel staff were unfriendly and were not helpful Breakfast was of little variety and the same thing everyday and if you asked for something else it took over 40 minutes to come

    Fabulous

    Comfortable hotel with a feel of home, it is a relaxing place with a good layout and beautiful decor.

    As a single person there was no service which really was not fair as groups got all the service.

    Hotel muito escuro, fica com aparencia de pouca limpeza. Os quartos limpos, mas as areas em comum faltou limpeza. Falta gerenciamento. Barulhento. Demora no atendimento do bar.

    Superb

    ホテルのスタッフは、大変親切で、フレンドリーだった。快適に過ごせました。

    エアーポートシャトルは最低、ホテル側に料金を支払ってるにもかかわらず、ドライバーが直接料金を請求してくる。空港まで送迎したときは、荷物をおさえられて脅され、結局R350払った。あげくにエアーにも乗り遅れた。
