Arranged a sales conference and stayed for 4 nights at the Birchwood in August. Found the accommodation comfortable and in line with conference hotels. The conference venue and arrangements were professionally managed. Had an issue with a no show booking, which was efficiently managed due to a communication problem with hotel when booking. Ample safe and secured parking. Close to...

My son played in the SAJCC chess tournament held at Birchwood Hotel. It was a excellent venue, good value for money, a safe environment for the kids to stay at, easy access to nearby convenience shops and restaurants, free wifi everywhere, excellent coffee shop and pleasant staff.

We had the unfortunate timing of our stay during a chess tournament in the conference hotel, however this did not overly affect our stay other than there being a lot of children around the hotel and being constantly asked if we were part of the chess group every time we spoke to reception or breakfast staff. The room was comfortable...

Dear wreckexplorer, Thank you for your review, We apologize should you have been irritated with the continuous inquiries as to whether you were part of the Chess SA Group. The main reason for this is due to their specific and limited menu, which our other guests were not part of and are to have access to the full buffet. We...

Exceptionally busy. Room type overbooked. Downgraded from Silverbirch to Birchwood. Surrounded by very noisy school children participating in a competition. Screaming in the halls until all hours. Some aeroplane noise as usual.

This rate was a lower rate than the rate charge at the university hostels in 2015.
