The location is at the relevant and centre of activities. Service from staff was great and helpful. the room was fine and cleaned with adequate frequency. The design for conference nentre is trouble especially when using small divided centres for use of bathroom.

Hotel Savoy, is a great place to stay in Umtata for business. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean, plenty of places to eat around the hotel and they all in walking distance, no need for using your car.

The room was spacious and semi-clean. the breakfast was okay although no-one told us where to get it we were helped by the morning security guard. If the hotel can train some of the reception ladies to be able to give full information and be professional
