location, service, comfort
Had an excellent stay, staff was friendly n helpful. Management could look at improving the breakfast as it is very basic. Rooms with 2 double beds would be ideal for couples with young children.

Chenay H. Couples South Africa, December 31, 2014
Breakfast was so rushed, long queues and same food daily, no variation, not even egg preference options - only scrambled egg. We were a couple yet were given a room with twin beds. No fridge in room. Air con was not working properly. No shuttle service to beach nor gateway. No drinking water provided in rooms! Overall did not enjoy this hotel.

Not what I expected/understood

Location, cleanliness, friendly staff
The staff were very friendly & helpful. On the last day of our stay, the breakfast area was due to close at 9.30am. however there were dozens of guests arrriving 15 -20 minutes after that time and the hotel still allowed them to have brteakfast. Most places would have simply turned them away. Our negative experiences included; 1. We were disappointed there was no room fridge and the 3 ice machines throughout the hotel could not cope with the demand 2. On one day our towels were taken away but no clean ones were provided 3. The newly replaced towels & floor mats were often damp (i.e. not fully dried from the laundry) 4. We were awoken at 1.30am one morning by someone knocking on our door & calling out they were house-keeeping staff to attend to a roll-out bed. We rang reception & were advised they had the wrong room! 5. The programming of the 2 lifts appeared not to be syncronised as the lift would stop & collect guests that had pressed the done button, on its travel to higher levels. Also one lift would simply pass our floor on teh way down & moments later the second lift would come to our floor

Holiday Inn

Sea view, smoking room and good support staff
Hotel ran out of pillows for four sleeper. There was no variety offered at breakfast in terms of the hot food and pastry. Level of cleaning especially bathrooms was of poor quality

Decent Enough

Modern, good value, no hassle.
Not a bad weekend, overall. The rooms were clean and everything worked. The only downer was that the walls were thin, meaning one could hear everything that went on with the neighbors. Also, the "order in" service (via a 3rd party, thus, not really hotel's fault) was completely useless and we didn't end up getting our food. If you're looking for comfort at a good price, this ticks the box.
