    Nice place. However a member of the staff has been stalking me since my stay. He must have went into the system stole my phone number. Messaged me on WhatsApp. Tried several times to become my Facebook friend. It’s stopped me from wanting to book here again. I liked the hotel and Location very much but he’s been a creep. I didn’t enjoy this. I think it’s rotten to have someone stalk you from a stay at their job.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Comfortable stay at a budget cost

    Room was comfortable with fast wifi, however the power to the building turned off twice during our 2 day stay which obviously effected it; in addition, the hot water system needed to be turned on at the wall and so was also effected with the loss of power. The adjoining restaurant, Vista, was very quiet but the food was to a really good standard. I would very much recommend the cheese naan! Overall, giving some leniency to the power loss, I would recommend a stay at Hotel Emerald.
