Awesome location and the room size at maharani is much bigger
Noise with Reggea festival. Only got to sleep around 11:40 the Saturday night and had to get up at 5 again to get ready for Midmar Mile. If I knew in advance about the party right outside my window I woudl have asked for a room at the back of the hotel and not a seevew room I had to pay R700 in additional fees for.
I've been in this hotel very often and nothing has changed. The breakfast has a huge variety but nothing really special. Staff at breakfast was very friendly. Porters and some of the reception staff were very helpful and patient.
The aircondition was rediculous. At check out I waited for 25 minutes to get one invoice for all the rooms booked and nobody was really able to do that. But it was sent to my email address. We hqd some of the smallest Standard rooms, which are cornered. Showers in bathtub!
There were no sandals on a cold tiled floors.
We had to wait for ages in a queue for breakfast every morning hotel was packed
Less packed, more staff especially for check in - staff slow
