Reviews from previous New National Hotel guests

“We stayed for one night in an executive king room, booking very late as we had to change our flight last minute. This is a great little hotel about 10 minutes in an Uber from the airport. Room was ready for us in the afternoon despite the extremely late reservation and was spotless and very well equipped with water and tea and coffee making facilities. The staff were very friendly and helpful and check in was very quick. We were also grateful for the refreshing drink offered on arrival. Our room faced the road but we didn’t find traffic noise a major problem and the hotel corridor was quiet. The bed was really comfortable. We didn’t have time for breakfast or to eat in the restaurant unfortunately. Would definitely recommend the hotel especially if accommodation is required close to CT airport,” wrote alvao179 on their TripAdvisor page.

mcharv799609 added; “Very nice, professional and helpful receptionist and the other staff too. The breakfast is definitely worth to pay for- the best eggs benedict I have ever got. Clean, comfy bed. The only reason we picked the place was it was the closest hotel to the airport for a good price and good reviews but it was probably the best place in South Africa we slept in.”

“Amazing stay, you get your monies worth, I was very impressed, will definitely be back. Rooms were very clean, and loved the decor, bathroom was spotless, they even had a mini fridge in the closet!!! Overall it was a great stay,” said JuanitaGM.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
