    For being quite and neat in the premises. It suited well the environment that I was looking for. The staff at reception were very firendly and accommodative.

    I arrived at middnite and my room was wide open and dark. I thought twice when entering and I even imagine that if I was a female, it was going to be worse for me, not knowing who is there inside.

    Cheap and cheerful! Good value for money. Staff were helpful, breakfast was good.

    Coffee etc wasn't replenished daily. Walls in the room could be doing with a clean. Pity the bed wasn't a real double bed and not just two singles pushed together - I like to cuddle up to my partner! lol

    The service and the stuff where excellent and professional. I must also mention that rooms are very clean and it value for your money. Life Hotel is perfect for any kind of budget.

    The rooms and bathrooms were neat and clean - with clean, crisp bedding just like the 4 and 5 star hotels.

    The plumbing is terrible. When patrons in the other rooms are taking showers or using the taps in the basin, there is a loud, disturbing noise everytime they open or close the taps. It echoes and shudders throughout the entire hotel. This is quite annoying especially late at night and very early in the morning.

    The only thing i'll change is for a mirror to be in the room it self and not only in the bathroom it makes it difficult to do hair in the bathroom cause theres no plug and u need to use n lead. Maybe a shower door cause when you shower the floor is all wet.

    The location is good, in a quiet secluded are outside of bustling city life.

    It seemed as if the hotel was not ready for guests (with it being new and all that). The furnishing of the room was incomplete with a small detached cupboard for clothes, only one side lamp for a double bed with two pedestals. No airconditioning/heater or fan at all.old dirty carpet on the floor, old paint smudges on the window seal. In the bathroom, there is a shower with no soap holder. There is a towel rail that hangs only 1 small towel. In the dining room, there is one waiter who is very sloppily dressed without a uniform, he also serves as the barman. At 7.15am breakfast table was not ready even though breakfast supposedly starts at 7.00am. The floor had not been cleaned from the previous evening and had disgusting smudges all over. I would not recommend staying at this hotel at all. Very disappointing for an upmarket surburb.

    We were happy with our stay and it fitted our budget nicely. We are going to Cape Town in July and will definately look up a Life Hotel down there.
