The location is super noisy next to one of the major streets with a lot of traffic in the morning and the evening. But the good news that you have easy access to the vineyards in the Stellenosch area. The room was great but you can see that the hotel is older and then nobody is really investing in it...

The hotel is a very nice old building with a interesting history of being an old boarding house. Upon arrival we had a few issues with being properly recognized as platinum elite member but speaking to the very friendly GM all was sorted shortly after. The rooms are very nice and if possible use an upgrade to the larger pool...
