Loud noise at night”

This place is very good and affordable. The problem is a loud noise throughout the night. Both noise from other guests who arrive at night and the noise from the tarven or night club. That affects our stay and sleep.

The best hotel you can stay. Superclean, all facility needed in a room. Friendly staff, if some of them can decrease their voices a bit. Don't be put off by the sorroundings, inside is beautiful and safe. Value for your money.

Dirty carpets in the passage. ”

I had to pay R20 to park my car under the tree. The carpet in the passage was dirty and doors were chirped as if the doors were tampered with. Got attitude from one of the guys doing check ins simply because I asked what time the music from the shebeen (seemingly) will cease.
