This hotel has retained the old world colonial charm with dark wood and marble floors. This hotel has character. The staff are friendly and are well informed as to good tourist destinations. We were warned not to venture very far from the hotel due to safety issues. Visitors should be aware that this hotel is situated in the CBD area on the sea front where the 'black' population live. There is a strong police presence on the sea front. Must have a guide to visit any tourist attractions in the CBD for safety.
What a great hotel! Small, safe and comfortable. Rooms are not the largest but well equipped and clean. Everything was great. The staff are exceptional, we had a problem with our car and they went out of their way to help, well done Lauren and Jason (and our waiter who also helped out). Restaurant staff are friendly and professional and breakfast on the terrace everymorning was fab! Best eggs Benedict, just perfect. We were greeted warmly but every member of staff we came into contact with. It is a small hotel and if you are travelling alone, know that you would feel very comfortable and secure.Well done Hotel on the Park, we will be back!!
The lady at the hotel were very friendly and very accommodating. They actually went over and beyond to help me and my friend staying there. Giving us all the information we needed help us during our stay with them. They are also some residents there as well which were lovely to talk to and also helped us out a great deal too. Thank you to you all at Parkview Hotel.
Gary & Tosca were both very welcoming, very friendly and very helpful. Ridgeview is well located, beautifully furnished and has lovely views over the harbour area. The breakfast was first class. Our room was a little on the small side, but we were only there for one night and it had everything you would want for a comfortable stay. we would certainly stay there again.

I needed to be close to the Expo centre and the cricket ground so this was fairly close. The hotel was fine but the issues were: 1. There was not a proper door to the bathroom, just a curtain (the actual toilet had a door but not the rest of the bathroom).
2. There was no fridge or microwave in the room.
3. I walked around with barefeet for a bit in the room after showering and my partner advised my feet were very dirty afterwards (i.e. the cleanliness of the floor).
4. We could hear noise from other people in the hotel from outside our door.
The positive was that the bed was nice and big and comfortable and the linen was nice and clean. I wouldn't avoid the hotel as it was not bad.
Stayed on 2 separate occasions and had great experiences both times! All of our requests were responded to perfectly, and with a smile. I was traveling with friends and we had 2 rooms (4 rooms total). Each room was different, comfortable and quite luxurious! There are plenty of private sitting areas, indoors and outdoors, and great views of the city, Indian Ocean and beautiful lush foliage. Totally relaxing!
