3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Good room, helpful staff and good internet. This property works best as a business hotel. However many parts of the property are in disrepair and a refurbishment program is underway (not complete). This means dust and noise. Guests who are not from Southern Africa may find some aspects of this property challenging.
