    Not the best holiday

    Staff very friendly. ...rooms very neat....we had a family room an the sleeper couch very uncomfortable. ...food was terrible. ...we had a buffet breakfast an ther were time slots...we took the last hour of the breakfast. There was hardly anything...we had to keep on asking waiters to bring things...which was ridiculous. Had no cutlery. We had 2 ask. Once it was 11am they started removing all food items which was ridiculous. I have been to other hotels an however this was my 1st an last stay at holiday inn express. But with like to compliment staff has they have been very friendly an accommodating

    True ambassadors for SA

    No complaints whatsoever. Everybody, from reception, through to housekeeping and everything in between was so friendly and helpful. Even after checkout while waiting for our flight, front desk staff arranged coffee for my Thai colleague and our visitors in between restaurant hours, made a very good impression.

  • 6.0.Good

    Only the hotel service meet the standards.

    It was just OK, the steakhouse service is terrible, the tour operator African Soil, managers level of professionalism is terrible, but the tour guide is friendly. So overall, the hotel itself service is OK, but their outsourced facilities like the steakhouse and the tour operator is not so good, for the price they charge for their services. I think South Africans need to starts treating all customers the same not based on the race or where they come from. We pay the same money and we deserve the same level of respect.
