NOT ENOUGH WATER IN ROOM.
The interior decor is most unusual and makes it a very interesting hotel to stay in. Food excellent and extended hours of dinning room very handy if you wish to sleep late in the morning or get back late from an outing.
Splendid views. Perfect location for a relaxing getaway from buzzing JHB. Lovely rooms. It was staying in a museum, we learnt something new everyday. We loved the exclusivity, never overcrowded. Enjoyed the boat trip to the heads. overall, lovely experience, and we would recommend anybody to stay at the Turbine hotel. We will definitely go back.
The pomptness of the hotel staff could be improved. We booked 90mins spa treatments, but we were not impressed with the treatments. It felt like the therapists were merely smering oil all over our bodies. (some benchmarking is required in that area).
amazing design hotel built at a former power house, impressive machines and turbine exhibits, modern well appointed rooms
breakfast personell slow, hair in fruit platter
Exceptional decor and service, out of the ordinary and different! Loved the flair and environment!
The location is excellent. We stayed in a suite which was very well equipped and had a lovely view. The restaurant food was very good.
The hot breakfasts could have been better presented. The impression we gained was one of no care taken and just dump the food on a plate. Other than that -- a well run hotel
Beautiful views, very interesting interior, very good breakfast
The staff can be more involved, giving us more info about the area.
the setup from the hotel Service Breakfast excellent location
ab sens of toilet tries
Beautiful place. Would highly recommend it. Nothing was a problem for them as they went out of their way to cater for my gluten intolerance needs. The chef was wonderful.
This hotel made our stay in Kysna, in fact it was the most spectacular few days we spent in South Africa. The restored hotel, the gorgeous well-appointed rooms with attention to detail, the delicious restaurants and quality service - this was a stay we'll remember for a very long time.
we only had 2 days
A lot of attention to detail has been put into creating a unique hotel. The staff are most helpful.
The bedrooms are on the small side, but have a lovely large bed which is a bit hard. There are opening shutters into the bathroom which give no "noise" privacy.
The decor and location
Shower was not as clean as it could have been....mildew
Excellent hotel, very comfortable and stylish, interesting design. Great location, friendly and helpful staff.
We had two rooms and were able to leave the doors open as we had a master door. Relaxing place in a wonderful environment.
Great room and location, a few wrinkles in food service and housekeeping yet to be worked out but overall a nice place to stay,
nice room but if you booked a suite on booking.com beware that all the rooms (even regular rooms) are called suites by the hotel.
Funky unusual Hotel - with a fascinating history. Its a credit to the people of the area as to how well they have worked together to regenerate the entire waterfront area.
Long check-out time as there was confusion about what was used from the mini-bar and then they couldn't find the card machine. 20+ minutes waiting to check out!
The spa treatment The design of the hotel The look of the Oyster room
The food was definitely not 5 star quality. The fruit in our room and at breakfast was not fresh. We did not get to stay in the room that we reserved on booking.com.
