There were even painting facilities for the kids, an Easter Bunny, Easter Egg Hunt and Live Music. This hotel has definitely improved since my last visit and will definitely come...

Whilst the rooms are slowly but surely showing signs of wear and tear due to the masses of tour groups staying there almost throughout the year, the staff in all departments are always very helpful and eager to assist and please guests. Nadia Simons from guest relations as always deserves a special mention, over the last year she always eagerly...

The hotel rooms are spacious. We have been here before and found the staff to be excellent. Food is also great but i did feel due to currency rate that we did not really get value for money for what it was. Considering the currency has devalued quite a bit things generally in the hotel were reasonably priced but not...

I believe that with this hotel, you will not be able to check in earlier than 2pm. We arrived at 12:30 after a 24 hour flight. But was only able to check in at 2. Good thing the hotel is walking distance to a lot of groceries and restaurants along Regent street. So we had lunch at Craft burger bar....
