    Vintage style

    We had to pay R75 per day for parking and I was not told in advance. The carpet in my room(642) was dirty or stained. Otherwise I like the vintage and elegant decor. The porters were helpful. Great service at the restaurant.

    The stay was fine but need to look at fixing their furniture in time before guests arrive.
