Hartbeespoort, South Africa23 contributions12 helpful votes
A lovely old hotel with a nice update. Staff are friendly and helpful- especially Greaterman who it seems is an institution there! Check in was efficient and fast, room was spacious, clean and light, and the view is lovely. The Ginger restaurant where we had dinner was excellent- staff were knowledgeable and the food was excellent, Chef John makes every meal an experience. The only let down, to be honest, was the Wavecrest restaurant where breakfast is served. Iris is a gem, but the other staff. need training. This is not criticism- I am highlighting it so that my impressions, if you find them valid, can be rectified. Have your staff check in with the diner at leat once during their meal to see if they need anything else. For heaven’s sake put two teabags into a pot of tea- 12 minutes after serving it was still too weak to drink. Have the F&B Manager make an effort with the juice- giving guests orange and mixed fruits from a box of Ceres juice simply lowers the tone- and keep it chilled, box juice at room temperature is really only for the brave. The oats which were freshly made was sadly inedible, overcooked and dry. Have the Manager stand back and take a look at the decor in the centre piece. Having whole fruit in liquid in a jars on the table is a little too reminiscent of Standard 8 biology lab. These are little things- but on the whole, they make breakfast in the hotel something to be endured, not looked forward to, on the other hand, the English breakfast was tasty. Would I book again? Absolutely yes- overall the charm and history override the breakfast and spotty service in the Wavecrest restaurant.

I had a good stay at Beach Hotel in PE. The hotel wasn’t too busy and was enough private parking available. The room was comfortable and cosy but just had a noisy aircon. Breakfast was good and staff where friendly.
