Thanksgiving vacation 2015

Would recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2015
Overall it was a good stay except for water going out on last day. Also, I think the shuttle /taxi service inside the hotel, while useful, the prices are very high. For instance I took a private cab from airport to hotel and driver charged 430 rand. Same service by hotel back to airport and I was charged 830 rand.

Excellent value, Good staff, mediocre WiFi

Would recommend Thu, Oct 1, 2015
Very clean room, great views on all sides. WiFi usage has a daily limit which is not high and once you reach the daily limit you need to wait till tomorrow to access WiFi.

My home from home

Would recommend Sat, Jul 18, 2009
This was my second stay in three months. I was taking care of family business and needed access to a copier, a fax, printer, computing facilities etc. Staff were helpful at all times and friendly. Room service was always quick and pleasant. Not all instructions like 'hold the onions' were properly followed but that was a minor inconvenience. The food was competent but not special.

Dining

Melrose Arch has a wonderful selection of restaurants and cafes for a change from the hotel's somewhat limited menu choices.
