Diamond in the ruff

I stayed at the Docklands for a weekend. The hotel is located in a redevelopment zone in the city so it is not the best part of the city although it is clear that a lot of municipal work is going on to improve the area. However, the hotel itself is exquisite. I arrived late in the evening and without any prior notification of my late arrival. The hotel staff were available when I arrived just after 22:00 and located my booking immediately. There are lifts in the hotel. The rooms are tastefully decorated with all the regular amenities. There are safes in the rooms where one can store your valuables. There was not a lot of noise in the evening and I slept well in the comfortable bed. There is 24 hour security in the parking area. The maintenance staff are available and competent. The continental breakfasts were fantastic. This was the best value for money hotel that I have stayed in in South Africa. I will definitely stay at the Docklands again!
