    • Couple

      Good hotel, clean, and a good restaurant available. A mall is very close to it.

      Very far from the interesting zones.

    • Group of friends

      The rooms are lovely and the bed is uber comfortable.

      I like the idea of the shower in the room, I just feel for a twin room, they should sandblast at least a the middle 1/3 of the shower glass.

    • Family with children

      Fine restaurant, comfortable mattress(es)

      Roomy enough for an ottoman but not for a chair to go with it

    • Older travelers

      I was in room 110 0n the ground floor and found it to be noisy from the passage and the car park

    • Couple

      OK for a 1 night stay, wouldn't stay longer.

      Ground floor room very noisy and location not great.

    • Group of friends

      The intimacy of a small hotel- you could get personal attention- which they dod with the morning of Comrades, where they arranged breakfast for all the athletes at 03h00 in the morning!

    • Older travelers

      Conveniently located for my purpose. Secure parking.

      Smoking smell in passage.

    • Older travelers

      Nice and modern. The beds are very comfortable. The big plus in this hotel is chef Jason in the restaurant. His dishes are excellent and his attention to his customers (even clearing dishes away!) and attention to detail and friendly conversation will let me go back to this hotel The staff is also very friendly.

      The glass showers in the rooms are a problem if you need privacy. Check that you do not get room 101 ground floor - which is next to the noisy restaurant and the reception desk. This room also has an enclosed bathroom meant for disabled people. The shower in this bathroom is not enclosed and the water splashes over everything. Sound proofing in the rooms is desperately needed. The 2nd night we stayed the comrades runners started at 03h30 and the doors banged and they were talking loudly to each other in the restaurant - we could hear every word through the door in room 104. There was a private function for a few hours in the evening for non guests and there was no parking inside the hotel grounds, so we had to park our car in the street.

    • Older travelers

      Was a nice experience and will stay there again

    • Older travelers

      The hotel is modern, compact and clean. Booking in was simple and "homely". Thank you for a pleasant stay

      A barking dog next doors was somewhat of a nuisance.

    • Single

      The dm did her best to rectify all situations.

      The hotel room was filthy with a cockroach squashed on the wall. The linen was dirty and had to get housekeeping to springclean the room, even though I only checked in at 18:00. The shower leaked all over the bathroom. The room was noisy and changed rooms the next day.

    • Older travelers

      The friendlyness of the staff and their attention to detail, my every request was met. No waiting to book in, Everything went smoothly, We most definatly enjoyed our stay and will come back it the future again...

      When i booked the room on, it specified that we would get slippers, when i enquired about that the receptionist said its only on request. I would have like the restaurants menu available in the room..

    • Single

      Restaurant staff

      No internet available, seemed to be the normal state of affairs. Shower glass enclosed in the middle of the room - no privacy if not travelling alone

    • Couple

      the room interior is excellent and the cleaniness is absolutley noticeable.

      the hotel needs a sound proof installed on the windows since there a flat acrooss or in the proximity and sometimes you can hear people making some noise.

    • Older travelers

      Great value for money. Modern decor and accesories. Room clean and very comfortable. Safe secure parking on the premises.

      In older part of town. Definitely need a car with GPS if you are planning to stay here. Would have like to have a mini fridge in the room.
