This Hotel always tries to improve itself , and gets better on each visit the process was easy from check-in to check-out, Staff were efficient and well trained to deal with guest over the covid 19 pandemic The rooms we had were exceptional, spotless ,contemporary with beautiful ocean views. Breakfast still remains wonderful, with a big variety . I was impressed of the new process of having staff dish out for you to ensure that dining experience remains safe for all guest . The overall visit was great and will return soon

The room was dirty on arrival, like in really dirty. Called housekeeping and had to show them where to clean. The carpet has not seen a vacuum cleaner or soap in weeks. The arm chair was just as dirty. Even the telephone was not cleaned. The desk had dust on and the broken table lamp has also not seen a cloth in some time. The shower curtain had toothpaste marks on and was not wiped on the inside. There was a chip on the floor next to the bed (not ours) and on day 3 I left a sticky note to vacuum the carpet. They should show you the room before you pay. Things could not get worse, or so I thought. Breakfast - the cooks have no idea how to serve breakfast and are the 2 most incompetent people I have seen. Unfriendly and unhelpful. Seems that everything is too much effort. You order eggs, she can't multitask and put your toast in at the same time. Then you stand in the queue for the hot food while the eggs and toast gets cold. Oh, and you have to ask for a big plate otherwise she puts the egg on a small plate. The spread of food was very strange, catering for a specific market. Vegetables and potatoes not breakfast food. The bacon was not cooked properly , still pale with white fat on or completely burned. How can you get bacon wrong? The ladies on the floor cleaning plates etc were very friendly and efficient. I thought that staying at Tsogo Sun would live up to the standards that we are used to. Not true. And please don"t respond with your copy and paste answer that you will look into it and address it. Do something about it.

Check in took 20 minutes for each person. not sure why. our room was clean and functional, everything worked, and well equipped, housekeeping gave us extra milk and coffee when requested, ( not happily) The public areas a little tired and need upgrading, we ate in the resturant downstairs- functional and noisy but good food. Parking good and safe. Breakfast, bit lie a canteen, but very good selection and tasty food .

The hotel is in a busy location, perfect for vacation purposes. I did not enjoy staying for business purposes, somewhat noisy defeating the evening catch up or preps - definitely not for business stay
