- Jacques Botes

The service was very poor. No one at reception to welcome guests. Just a security guard who showed us where to sleep. The water was very cold and we could not even take a hot shower or bath after a long day, and still cold in the morning. The security told us breakfast was between 7:00 and 9:00.Breakfast was prepared very late, about 8:00 and this was only after complaining to one of the staff. There was one loaf of bread for all the residents as the delivery was late. The following day it was prepared much better. The place is very dirty, dusty as well. No heaters were switched on in the dining room, very cold winter morning, could not even sit down to eat.
The bedroom we slept in was much better in cleanliness. The kitchen is horrible and the bathrooms.
I would not recommend this place to anyone unless the standard of cleanliness improves and management takes good care of the facility and customer service improves. I feel if the management can clean the place, so it smells fresh and welcoming, then it would be better.

Service was one of the worst I can imagine!! The staff were very unprofessional! It was so dirty and we had to kill cockroaches before going to bed. I would NOT recommend this place!!!!
