Our reception area is located on the first floor and a valid key card is required in order to take the lifts up to the floors on which bedrooms are housed. We offer secure 24 hour parking and have a porte cachere area that accepts busses.

When it comes to our accommodation, we offer double rooms,  twin bedded rooms, as well as rooms with sleeper couches, for budget groups or families. Each room boasts a mini-fridge (not stocked), electronic safe, conveniently located plug points next to the beds, free high-speed wi-fi and comfortable bedding with a choice of soft or firm pillows.

Our Free Express Start Breakfast is served from 06h30 until 09h30 Monday to Friday and until 10h30 on weekends and public holidays. For those who don't have time to sit down and eat before heading to your event, you can take advantage of our breakfast Grab & Go offering. There is also the option of ordering breakfast packs for groups. The on-site Butcher Block restaurant was voted as EatOut's Steak House of the Year in 2019 and caters to all your dinner needs, with a wide menu variety.
