    Service was good as usual as I have stayed at this hotel before. Quality of the food was good and the staff were very attentive. Nice location as it is close to the airport and that local hotel feel against the Garden Court across the road.

    The hotel is obviously having some structural work done, which had no effect on my stay, but I would say that the bedrooms are starting to need some attention, especially the bathrooms - attention to detail as well - but still very clean and everything worked, so no actual problems.

    I asked for a taxi service to the airport at 5:30 am and the reception organized it very well

    badroom was not very clean and shower did not give a hygienic look because of lots of spots (fungi) between the tiles. the foto on the site look better than reality.Booked a room with sea view, but did not get it.

    The hotel staff was very friendly and the chef makes a delicious breakfast. The bacon.......huuuu....!!

    The view was nice. The hotel is a walking distance to many areas like broadwalk and the beach.

    Small and personal. Good position. Good view. Good service.

    Overpriced by poprt elizabeth standards. Range 800 - 1000 Rand would be better value.

    The food was very good

    We were in a room overlooking the car park, we were woken at some very early hour by coaches backing iup and manoevering in the car park, Reversing the coaches was indicated by a loud bleeping that went on for over an hour a good two hours before we wanted to wake up for breakfast. we were not best pleased.

    The food & location.

    I would like to see more of the DSTV channels. Carpets was't very hygenic.

    I booked a deluxe room, and got a smaller room, so when I told that to the guy on duty that afternoon, he immediately moved me to a bigger room.

    I booked the best option they had on the internet, but I got one of the smaller cheaper rooms in the beginning. No refreshments in the rooms.

    Stayed there before as the Caboose. Very enjoyable. Will book again.

    breakfast buffet had a big variety, secure parking, friendly staff

    1. Sitting outside on the balcony when weather is pleasant and enjoying the view is not possible if you are a non-smoker. 2. We were looking forward to an early night, but unfortunately the people at the bar, only started settling down after 1 am. We are not sure if our room was located to near to the bar or if everyone in the hotel experience the same problem. 3. Foghorn is terribly disturbing. 4. While sitting on the balcony, trying to relax, some of the staff were continuously talking/laughing very loudly in the restaurant. Wanting to book out, the receptionist was not at the desk and I had to get her attention from where she was socialising with fellow staff members in the next door office.
