A good stay, however some improvements required which are probably long overdue. Repetitive Buffet to be revisited. Special requests within reach are important to address. Obstruction and visible security at hotel entrance to be urgently investigated and corrected. However, I will return for my future stays. Well done to the entire staff who are ultimately responsible uphold the vision and...

I stayed here for three nights in April Staff: neutral at best... Room: suite was adequate, includes a coffee and tea station which I always appreciate. For some reason there was no body lotion or face towels. I would suggest you carry your own. Staff did not replace soaps etc., uncertain if this is standard policy - however, I carried...

The overall experience from entry to exit was as always top drawer for a 3 star establishment, it was a 4 star experience. The food is always good, fresh, and buffet replenished regularly. The bottomless fruit juice is always the best.

Thinking of visiting East London in South Africa, look no further than this 3 Stars comfortable and slightly luxurious affordable accommodation. Friendly staff members with attention to detail, walk to the Beach and enjoy the surrounding areas.

The hotel is still kept in a good shape and very clean. Its location is wonderful for holiday makers as it is right at the beach front. However, I would like more sea food on the menu. The staff is friendly and efficient in their job. Thank you Guys. Keep up the good work

The staff at the hotel was helpful, in particular the staff who were serving dinner as I arrived 10 minutes after the closing time. They were able to get something for me to eat. The general experience was good. I think the hotel staff is a good investment tool. I felt home away from home.

There should be car shades in all car parking slots. It is the good thing that you are painting, try to complete painting soon. The quality of your food must always maintain high standard. provide more irons and ironing boards.
