Stayed here over two nights, peaceful and beautiful place. Comfortable rooms with the best staff ever. Zoleka was the highlight of our stay. She was approachable, handy and always had a smile on her face, such a pleasure to be around and made us feel at home. We really enjoyed our stay and would go back here whenever in East london.
