Recent guest reviews

The service & staff was excellent. I've been booking this hotel for the past from 2013 cause I travel from Durban to CPT and back 3 time a year and I love it. Just some few bathrooms needs improvement

Spacious rooms, good service and great breakfasts set in the most tranquil setting.Staff are extremely willing and eager to please.Easily accessible with all the amenities such as rowing,boat rides, river cruises and many more at your finger tips.

The staff were super friendly and helpful and excellent with our kids. The room was clean and very a nice spacious size. We had a wonderful breakaway with spectacular views of the marina. The pool and Jacuzzi area was great for the kids.

Relaxing weekend with excellent service from the staff. Food was also amazing. Kitchen was accommodating with extra requests. Stunning view from hotel room of the marina. Relaxing pool and lounging area

Stayed overnight for a two-day business trip at the Halyards Hotel, and it wasn't that pleasant, just forget the hype. Literally couldn't get proper sleep due to some commotion emanating from next door and the 4 hour long drama that ensued with also police presence. The rooms are standard grade, carpets with a stench and forget about keeping your goodies chilled - no bar fridge. The ironing facilities/service is not that bad except that you have only 1 person doing that work especially when the hotel was fully booked, just wait several hours for your clothes to be ironed! The food was good though, especially lunch, the taste changes in the evening (perhaps due to a different chef).

I personally had a very great ans a relaxing time at the hotel, but i was not satisfied with my room because i had no TV the adopter had a problem and i phone the reception for help i was not assisted

Excellent service and very service to customers. The rooms were clean and food was also good. I will recommend the hotel to any one. The atmosphere was excellent and breeze coming from the river. The drive game was also excellent. Rangers were so friendly and know their story about the game reserve. I need to come back with my family once I have money. Good journey.

Rooms need upgrade - basic at the moment - more entertainment for kids. Also a kids menu option. Tiles very slippery around the pool area. Otherwise nice quiet stop over or weekend. Value for money for a large family group.

We want to thank the friendly staff of Haylards. The beauty of the nature was awesome. We enjoyed the supper and the breakfast a lot. Food was excellent so are the rooms and the location of the hotel..

We spent a night at the halyard Hotel on our way down South a couple of weeks ago. The rooms are spacious and ours had a view of the waterways. The rooms need a little work, on arrival it felt like the room had not been aired and was quiet moldy smelling. The bathroom had a shower and old bath tub. The management and staff were very helpful and went out their way to make sure we were comfortable. The rate includes breakfast which was a very impressive buffet, with a good selection. on offer. All in all this is a pleasant but basic Hotel.
