    I like the location of the hotel and the design of the rooms inside

    The parking lot is always a problem.The aircon was not working properly for the second time now and I would like to kindly request that your hotel please invest in a couple of irons, it was my third stay at your hotel the first time I had to repeat clothes from the previous day because I had been waiting such a long time for an iron the second time I brought mine and this last time I had to call three times requesting for an iron because I just could not see myself repeating clothes again. Another little problem I had was that when I made my booking on the internet and requested for a double room with a bathtub I was not made aware that there were no double beds available.When I got to the hotel I was given a key to an occupied room which was a bit embarrassing for me to walk in on other people and when I returned to inform the reception, it was treated as if its just a normal occurance because the lady just said"Its okay I will check for another one for you" and then she goes on to say I dont have a double bed available with a tone that is clearly telling me that I do not have a choice but to settle for the single room. I am not much of a complainant but it pains me to see how our fellow black people treat us with a dismissive attitude as compared to the friendly apologetic tone she would have used had I been of a different race. I feel that as long as I pay my money to stay anywhere I should be treated the same way as any other valued guest.

    The quality of the rooms is excellent. Clean, fressh, crisp linen and clean functional bathrooms

    The tv reception is poor. The recption was not freindly. The breakfast was a complete shambles and poor quality. I confimed on booking in that Breakfast would be ready at 06h30 as I had a 07h00 business meeting. It was no wher near ready. No staff. No cereal. No hot food ... right up to 07h00 when I left. Also, reception staff were arguing amongst themselves in front of me. This is a no no.

    Fabulous

    I liked the people who works for the Reef hotel. Simply they make you feel you are at home.

    The only thing I did not like in the restaurant they do not psot any signs on the food they are serving. Being a Muslim I would like to know and it is my right which food is served.

    Good

    It is suitably located to undertake activities in the city and attend events taking place in and around the city.

    The parking provided is horrible.

    Superb

    What I liked best was that even the security was very friendly and did the effort of showing my friends and I where we had to park the cars since it was out first time visiting reefs hotel. It was a great experience and we thank the staff and reefs hotel.

    Only one thing we didn't like is that the toilet didn't have a door for more privacy in using the toilet
