    Elangeni staff have no knowledge of hospitality and neither know how to return calls at all. Even the DUTY Manager never calls back and the rooms are like prison cells.(Small and sick for the price we pay)

    This is my second time in the hotel. I will defnitely be back. We felt very welcome from meeting the parking attendant to being checked in at the Elangeni, although we stayed at the Maharani. Well done Tshogo Sun.
