Convenient location, good amenities, familiar brand
Free wireless and complimentary welcome drink voucher for the bar. Hot Rock fillet at the adjoining Spur restaurant is awesome!
Staff are friendly and polite
Hotel, particularly the business rooms, are grossly overpriced. One can get a better room with far better facilities in central London, Paris, Rome, New York etc
I had issues with my Credit Card and was very impressed with your front staff's patience and assistance
Not your fault, but the traffic congestion from the airport and back may be an issue for me in the future because of the time it took
Room with doors opening to the gardens and the breakfast buffet
Event with far too loud music disturbing for a few hours
The hotel location makes it good for business travellers. The ambience is very good, but most of it would get missed by a typical business travellers who would typically use it is a place to sleep only.
This would be a great hotel but fot the price the demand
The greenary enviroment inside the compound
The over crowded number of staff
Very nice, loved the courtyard and the view out of the rooms. Relaxing and soothing. Close to west gate mall and sarit center. Spur at the hotel was good. Staff were efficient and helpful. Free internet & b/fast included in the room rates. Booked.net rates for this hotel was inclusicve of all taxes, whereas at hilton, I had to pay taxes & service fee over and above Booked.net rates.
The Mayfair (as I have always known it) is located in an ideal setting, 5 minutes walk from all the shopping malls and excellent bars and restaurants of Westlands. The hotel is enclosed within very lush green grounds that compliment its Colonial architecture and makes you forget that you are surrounded by the city. I would highly recommend paying a visit to Spur's Steak Ranch, located on site. It's Steaks are some of the most tender I have ever tasted and excellent value for money. I only sampled The Mayfair's breakfast menu but found the choice of food to be vast and extremely well cooked. The staff and friendly, professional and helpful. I couldn't have asked for me. I will return again.
My only, (and very minor complaint) would be that the pillows in the room are far too soft for me. However I did not ask for a change so am unable to comment on whether this could be rectified.
Majority of staff were polite, courteous and helpful.
Oasis restaurant. No reply from Manager to a written complaint.
Location, gardens, facilities such as good hair saloon
My room located close to the power generator, very noisy when electricity goes off
Location Food Courteous Staff
Rooms look fairly old the location of the room was not good hair found on the bed sheets no air conditioner in the room fan cannot be controlled
cost & enveronment.
Staff could not be more helpful. Excellent security. Extremely attractive pool area for breakfast and drinks Central and convenient for bars restaurants but hotel itself is peaceful. Serena and Inter pool area is noisy from road. Like being next to a motorway. Good value so why pay more (double) to stay in the Serena especially if you are paying yourself.
