“Checked out after one night”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2010

The website suggests that they are "redefining the art of hospitality". Sadly after one night there it is unclear which direction this redefinition is moving. The staff are efficient at best but unenergetic and the rooms are absolutely nothing like the website. They are small, old, my non smoker smelt of cigarettes. The shower is uncontrollable. There is no safe, and given the hotel is alongside the railway station, the coach station and the prison, I felt like this was a bad omission. Plus points for the driver who looked after us well at either end of the football match but apart from that, no redeeming features. I checked out after one night.

My Experience : we found this hotel from a few freinds who had been there earlier. The hotel had nice cozy rooms and they also had interconnecting rooms for large families. it was convenient to stay her and tour both pretoria and Joberg. Since it was a little away from Joberg city buzz, this was affordable. if you have a car/taxi then its ideal to stay at a place like this to save on joberg city hotel rates. I would not say that the food was great but we did not depend on the hotel food as there are a few restaurants /joints along pretoria. if you are travelling as a large group and have your own transport, then its worthwhile to strike a deal at this place.
Dos : plan day long trips to pretoria , Joberg staying at this hotel.

Good hotel for the value. Great view of petoria. Good location. Rooms were clean. Lobby was decent. Staff was helpful.

One of the great values is the buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food was very acceptable. We stayed in one of the presidential suites nothing spectacular. I believe the have the Clinton and Bush suites (smile). As stated before It was clean and really good for the value. No gym that I could remember.

Stay at this hotel for $89-100/night totally WORTH IT.
