Too noisy for a good night's sleep”

I only stayed there to be closer to the airport in the morning even though i still had to get up at 4am. The bar in the square was super noisy till after 1am, at which time the patrons returned to the hotel and made further noise till after 3am, screaming loudly in the atrium, banging doors etc. I would have been better off staying at home. Also chose the hotel as the website said they have parking, however this is still sort of street parking for which you have to pay R110....not impressed by that! Room was beautiful, however needs tlc.

The place is situated in a dilapidated complex. You are charged parking fees where the parking is dirty,, not clearly marked. The carpet in the rooms was very dirty. There is no fridge nor microwave. When I requested ice, I was told there are no ice buckets. The interior area was smelling of cigarette. On the receipt it showed breakfast included when I enquire I was told no breakfast included. The area so rounding the hotel is occupied by homeless people. I will not recommend anyone to stay there. The place looked like a prostitution hotel

Value, location & front desk staff

Stay is generally pleasant. On my first stay the aircon was broken and they did not offer to move me to another room. The water also took very long to get warm. Bar staff tend to be slow and more interested in the television than patrons. These issues were not present on the second visit though, which makes the New Tulbagh one of the best value for money hotels I've visited.
