    Exceptional 10.0
    Good location. Food needs work.
    Room was great. Location was good to get to my morning meeting, but not safe to walk around at night. Restaurant was so-so - main course was good but dessert was overpriced and tasteless. Wifi was great.
    Hussein, za1 night business trip
    Very good 8.0
    Comfortable and clean
    This was a stay of 2 weeks while completing a local project. The rooms are comfortable, Good quality bed with comfortable pillows. I appreciated the availability of tea and coffee in the room, unusual in Africa. Wifi was fast enough even at weekends when it was more busy. As reported in other reviews the pool is in shade for part of the day because it is west facing but is in sun most of the afternoon. Not a place for a serious swimmer though! The hotel car park has over 50 spaces. A secure place and accessed by barriers. A security guard is always present. A sizeable shopping complex is about 100 m from the hotel and very safe to walk to and from and around. There are plenty of eating places for all pockets and tastes and also 2 supermarkets, some arty shops a cinema and more. Its sometimes difficult to get service in the bar/restaurant as the staff are not always visible and there is no call system. The menu is limited but food well presented and priced competitively with the local restaurants. The security staff of the neighbouring shopping centre tend to have loud conversations outside which echo around the neighbouring buildings and can be early in the morning so I suggest ear plugs for a longer night
