        Shaquille and Lindiwe were the best”

        We had our wedding on the 23th September 2020, Shaquille and Lindiwe made it a point that everything was in order and perfect for the day. They went beyond their call of duty. Shaquille welcomed us weeks before the wedding and really made us to choose the venue when we had 3 hotels to choose from because of his friendliness. I will definitely go back there for my anniversary.

        Great Hotel”

        I always gripe at the unique hotel temperature scale, when I pay for a room and select 30 degrees I want 30 degrees and not about 23, but this is regretfully world hotel standard. The balcony was not private but shared. The room was wonderful modern and well maintained, I really liked the glass shower cabin, wonderful display case for your partner ;-) the place certainly has a classy feel to it, curtain was provided for those not into that kind of randy atmosphere. the room was spacious and had a feel of modern understated luxury. The breakfast was nice, service solid and friendly without being familiar, Ill definitely come back.

        Arrived way early and the staff did their best to get me room before check in time. Breakfast was good, rooms are open plan & neat. The downfall is there was no bar fridge in the room other than that I would book at the hotel again. Also had dinner at their restuarant and the food was on point👌

        We were early for checkin and told check in after 14h00 fair enough,the front desk made no apologies and communication was poor with no offer to help.The rooms was very clean and tidy,immaculate however when we got to breakfast at 945am which was supposed to be from 630 to 1030,the staff I assume just finished most of the rush hour and was very disinterested in serving,we had to ask for hot water for tea,the milk jugs with hot milk was empty,and being of specific cultural background very less was available to eat,the restaurant staff was not accommodating at all.Being a group of misty blue hotels,I found this unbelievable as we have stayed and urban park and we rated them 5stars and when booking was made I had thought the same would apply being in the same group of hotels.They really need to improve if they want to keep the rating of that group at a high.

        The waiting staff, don't treat customers of colour fairly as compared to the other races. We were overlooked and served second-grade services
