Did not sleep a wink
I stopped over in Bloem for the night enroute to EC.. from about 22:00 until 03:00 in the morning the person in the room next door had the music soooo loud I could not sleep. At first I was convinced there was a club nearby only to realize that the music comes from inside the hotel. I am still not sure how the reception desk was not able to hear this sound. I eventually called the front desk and they sent security to address the issue..

We stayed for one night as we had an AGM and dinner to attend. Reception excellent when asked if we could move from 2nd floor to 1st due to my wifes not liking stairs due to her knees. However the bacon at breakfast was COLD but the choice of food excellent.

An OK Hotel
It was a quiet night with few guests. The room was good. The bathroom needed a bit of a clean. Dinner was limited and too many heavy dishes on the menu. Breakfast wasnt taken.
