  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Federal Palace has that vintage grandeur especially around the foyer, which is nice. Also has very nice grounds at the back with a nice view of the water. Externally though, it could do with a refresh and....what's the intent with the seemingly empty and gradually degrading tall building next door to the main hotel? Hopefully the owners will get the investment required to fully utilise both buildings,as the hotel is a classic.

    Not worth it

    Not as nice as pics. Needs major updating. Especially to bathroom. Sheets had stains. Bathtub poor. Scary and unfriendly staff. Could tell from the moment I walked into the lobby that I made a mistake. Will not stay again. Way OVERPRICED.

    very good hotel

    Fantastic staff across the hotel, who really made you feel welcome. The ladies at breakfast were especially awesome. They could do with more vegetarian options on their menu - people’s diets are changing! Comfy room and great location.

    It was a family stay and we had great fun. The kids had fun at the pool and the slides was definitely a winner, The staffs were also very responsive and flexible. We really enjoyed our time.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I was in the area for 10 days for family. My first impression was great! Check in was smooth, but when I got to the room it wasn’t the best experience. I had to change rooms and it made it a little better. I had to be ok for staying there for 10 days. Something came up and I had to go to another state and the hotel made accommodations for me to return. On the second check in, it was a difference between night and day. Everything was clean, smelled nice, clean sheets! I was very comfortable for the remaining of my stay. Breakfast was very good. I was also pleased with lunch which I had twice and we did room service once. They had options that were good if your not use to eating African food. This hotel was family friendly and quiet, they had a small casino and a comfortable bar for adults. If your staying during the week the pool was very quiet and comfortable. Weekend was family weekend. But I would recommend you stay here.

  • 6.0.Good

    Had to pay for a lot of uncommunicated extras

    It’s an okay hotel but standards just fall short. It’s a different policy depending on who you talk to. Also had a room with a kid and even though says includes breakfast found out it’s just the adults and I had to pay for the child which was never advertised. Also I couldn’t have visitors come see me by the pool without them paying to get in which doesn’t make sense so really felt let down by the standards and did not have as great a stay as I would have liked as kept having to compromise to suit the hotel rules.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The breakfast is great. The que to get in should be managed better. The check-in staff needs some serious customer service training. The customer must be made to feel like a customer. I did not leave feeling valued at all.

  • 6.0.Good

    This hotel is unfortunately a shell of its former glory. Musty smelling carpeting, old furniture, noisy air conditioning, sewage smell, blocked drainage and cold showers tainted my stay here. Granted, the garden is gorgeous along with the tranquility of the morning breakfast which also stands out as exceptional. Pool is also very kid/family friendly with the slides and a mega sized bouncy platform. Will I recommend it. No! I had to move rooms 3 times. I definitely overpaid and I’d rather stay at one of the newer hotels.
