Double Room
Stayed 1 night in August 2016
We could not sleep. There was a lot of noise from the street below, mostly from the ladies of the night. The view is excellent. we did not appreciate that fact that we had to go to a room on another floor to iron our clothes. Please guys get with the times. The furniture in the room although made recently looks mid 70's in design. modernize the design and colors then you can justify the cost.

Weekend getaway
Hotel is on the beach but had folling problems: 1) Very dubious people in side streets adjacent to hotel. 2) Room comfortable but very noisy. Woken through the night by drunk hotel guests shouting in passage.3) Parking only safe if inside basement at additional cost. 4) Breakfast. Far too many people in breakfast lounge by 08h00 - waited for 10 mins for a seat, free for all reminded me of a rugby scrum -everything was finished and we were jossled and waited in a long queue to be served. Very noisy patrons. Nice location but a large number of uncouth guests spoilt the stay.

Better Communication
When I checked in I was told there was an "issue" with my room reservation and as a result I have been moved to the sister hotel "Gooderson Tropicana". I thought this could have been communicated to me a lot earlier rather than on the day and time I check-in.

It took two hours to check me in. The first problem was created by Agoda their agent through which I booked who sent them my booking as for 1 person when I clearly stated it was for 2 adults and 2 children. I clearly booked a family room but was given a normal room for 1 person even though it had 2 double beds in it. I was even charged an extra R834 which I really couldn't understand but I paid it to limit inconvenience. I was really dissapointed.

My Stay at the Gooderson Beach Hotel
The views are excellent, it is close to everything and the staff members were very polite.
The stay was excellent. The service was exceptional, the food was great and virtually everything was working. I think the Hotel can complete the pleasure by introducing small mini bars in the rooms.
