Best hotel for a family

Food, Location, Value for money
Being a second time visitor, my latest was very pleasant and even better than the first time. The rooms are big enough for the four of us and conveniently located.

A very good stay made all the more pleasant by the efficiency of the staff and the hotel's close proximity to all the amenities I needed.

Great hotel close to harbour

Location, Value,
The hotel was fully booked for a conference but despite this, the service was still on standard. It was close to the harbor and perfect just before boarding the cruise ship

The environment was nice and clean, very quite.

very accommodating , The staff were very friendly.
I had a great experience. The staff was very friendly. We did not wait for 14:00 check in when we arrived very early in the morning.They just accomodated us since the room that was allocated to us was available. We got a chance to rest. The food was niceand we did not have any issues.

Hansen L. Families with older children South Africa, June 24, 2014
Misreprentation of facilities, vexing renovations

Location, mattresses and bed linen, reasonable cupboard space
Never again. We were booked into a room where the telephone was dead, we had no hot water, the "20 DSTV channels" (as advertised) were 8 channels, 5 of which were of too poor quality to watch, and the club right below played loud dance music from our arrival at 14:00 past 01:00 that night. We booked a room for 4, we were 3 guests, and there were only two bath towels. We asked for more towels on arrival, but had to ask for them again by the evening. (Because the telephone was out of order, we had to go physically to Reception.) The coffee provided was Ricoffy - how cheap can you get for a three-star hotel?! After complaints they moved us to another room that was quiet, where the telephone worked and the TV reception was better. Still, however, the disgusting coffee and the almost absent DSTV - Misinterpretation! The "full English breakfast" included only one kind of sausage, no bacon. On request, we got macon, but it was inedibly bad and fatty. Eggs were available only in scrambled form. Only the most basic kind of bread (ordinary white and brown) was available - no seed loaf, croissants, muffins, etc. The spreads were limited to margarine and one kind of jam, not even a shred of cheese! The service in the dining was beyond slow. One had to hunt down a waiter - they seemed to be understaffed. The staff that did appear, however, were friendly.

Unpleasant, very noisy

Friendly staff
Very unpleasant. Hotel was undergoing renovations. Dusty and noisy. We were not informed of this by Albany Hotel or Agoda. Taxis hooting in the street below 24 hours day and night. Nightclub patrons made noise most of the night and into the early morning.
