Adoga never forwarded our booking to the hotel and they weren't ready for us on arrival.....luckily they had a room available. No Hotel Directory in the room......didn't have clue about booking out time, room service etc. TV bouquet pathetic......picture quality even worse. Went to the restaurant in the hotel for supper and ordered white wine. Were told out of stock....NO white wine. So we ordered red wine. Once our food arrived we followed up on the red wine and were then only told there is no red wine...also out of stock. And this is a 4 star hotel???

Towels were in bad condition. Shower did not properly function. King size bed had a flat sheet on the mattress that was WAY to small for the mattress. No hairdryer. No stationery. I stayed for 2 nights. Tea/coffee/milk/ sugar was not replenish. My overall impression can best be described as "illusions of grandeur"

Location not good - should have another entrance to hotel - traffic terrible & people approaching you to assist not safe aircon - did not know where to adjust. NO hot water No sign to tell staff not to disturb or to clean room Taps work on such a high pressure Check in & out time not conducive to visitor requirement eg I visited Durban to visit a sick person. Was not able to check in early but had to check out at 10:00. No time to even have breakfast or use the facilities available. Parking fee should be an option on the web site. The price gives the impression of cheap in comparison to other hotels but is not when parking added at reception.
