      Hotel is exceptional from an accommodation point of view.

      I found that once you are at the hotel and do not have transport you are isolated from shops, restaurants etc.

    • Single

      The location was important to me so it is ideally situated on the Bedfordview side of Gilooly's interchange.

      I didn't like that the room door opens up onto an open hallway as this made the room cold and uncomfortable as there was no individual airconditioner to set the room temperature. I also didn't like that there was no duvet on the bed, no hairdryer, no toilet paper and no amenities other than soap!

    • Family with children

      Disign is nice it's an eye catcher!

      There were no hair dryer in the room , and would plefer a TV in the main bedroom and a restaurant in the hotel (roomservice)

    • Single

      I liked that the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The lulu coffee shop is open 24hours. And that the bed was so big and comfortable.

      Pleasant driver on shuttle service.

      No bar, limited food, small sparse room, no minibar, no fruit and water in room, miserable reception staff, untimely watering system during night, extremely expensive.

    • Group of friends
      6.2

      Good position and easy access to n1

      Booked.net gave me a booking confirmation for r610 per room. But on arrival of the hotel, the lady at receiption insisted to charge me r650 per room. I therefore have to pay r80 extra without clear explaination. Very upset.

    • Couple
      7.8

      The hotel staff was very unprofessional. The was nobody at reception when we arrived.

    • Single
      8.0

      Modern place to stay and close to the airport

      The only thing is the thin connecting door between rooms and can be noisy if the room next door is loud,
