    It is the last Saturday in February 2016 and there is no air conditioning in Woolworths!! Customers and staff are battling with the heat - surely the air conditioning is not Woolworths' responsibility - where is the Cresta Maintenance department?!! People were irate, staff were feeling ill - disgraceful!! Getting into the parking this morning was a disaster - there was a problem with the ticket machines so there was a queue of cars trying to enter the parking at the Game entrance. Before you can leave you have to pay for your ticket - the one machine was "down" and you had a guy trying to fix the problem with angry customers moaning at him (not his fault!! It's Cresta Management's fault). Then, once you leave, there is only one exit - a stupid sign is blocking the other exit because it isn't working. Buck up Cresta!! Fix the problems during the week when you have a quarter of the customers you have on weekends.

    Shopping at Cresta is a great mall to shop as it has so many stores that offer a variety of whatever you need. It caters for daily essentials, luxuries and entertainment. The mall is rather big so take it slow and interrupt your shopping experience by visiting one of the restaurants along the way. Best to avoid banks at the end of the month as it is very busy. Only issue I have is parking is expensive and you pay to park in the hot sun!!!!!

    Cresta Mall has a large selection of stores allowing you to do your clothes , food and home shopping all in one go. The mall has been undergoing renovations and I have to say that the improvements have made the mall cleaner, brighter and enjoyable place to shop. Most of the stores have also been upgrading adding to the overall feel of the mall. The only change I dislike is that we now have to pay to park outside in the sun.

    My family and I often shop at Cresta Mall. I find it a mall that has all the shops I normally shop at and a good selection of restaurants and coffee shops. The information counter is very clued up on information one might need. I just find the parking is a bit expensive especially when your car is parked in the full sun!!! I also find the centre to be a lot more cleaner and brighter at one stage it was looking very grubby!!!

    Ok, this mall is very close to me so if I need anything fast, I have to go there, but Cresta has been doing construction for more than 1 year and it is annoying. It is a clean mall, safe, but please just get stuff done already. And the new parking system, over the weekends, it is a nightmare and a bit expensive, it would be nice if you reconsidered your parking fares.

    This morning I visited Cresta for my regular breakfast. People have been talking about Cresta and having to pay for parking for a while now but this morning I realised just what a complete rip off their parking prices are!! R8-00 for one hour's parking in the open!! Absolutely ridiculous!!! There are only a couple of car guards so I am assuming that the majority of the car guards have lost their jobs?? I have decided not to go to Cresta on weekends anymore. I will go during the week, ensure I am out of there within an hour, and pay nothing. Big mistake Cresta - HUGE!!!

    Cresta has a very comprehensive selection of stores and you can find something for everyone there. The recent upgrades to the parking are a total fail and I would not be surprised if people ramp the islands or have accidents, particularly at night as the areas are quite poorly lit. The security has been an issue recently although prior to the recent spike in shopping centre crime, I had never felt unsafe. It's a great shopping mall and I regularly go there for meeting up with friends and for shopping.

    Cresta is a really great mall as they have everything you could possibly need. It frightens me a bit when there are incidents like the burglary at the iStore which happened not too long ago. Sometimes I wonder if we have a false sense of security walking around there but it really is a great mall and they seem to have upped the security after that event. The new parking is a bit of a mess and I'm not sure they really thought that through but the inside renovations are looking great.

    Great centre because it has everything I want. I can shop there, my fiancé and I like to eat there and they have everything we need!! Love the Woolworths, Seattle Coffee Shop, Boardmans and Zara. They are always changing shops around and the new Queenspark has super new ranges to wear to work.

    I was in Cresta on Friday afternoon and a lady tried to steal another lady's purse. Within SECONDS there were a load of security who caught the would be thief and whisked her off!! Well done!! Cresta is one of the few stores who are always upgrading or expanding. The quality of shops is really good and I do enjoying shopping here. Then, of course, the number of restaurants, cafes, coffee bars to sit at after you have shopped is excellent.

    I would not classify myself as a "shopper", more a "necessity purchaser". I am happy going into Woolworths, getting what I need, having a bite and getting out. Cresta SHopping Centre I dont have a problem with. The management are continuously upgrading the centre and it is very very clean.They have all the shops I need for magazines, cellphones, restaurants etc

    Cresta is a nice place that one can come with family to eat out and shop and you will be safe. It gets a little too full and busy at times but it jut means that people trust this mall.

    The new parking at Cresta is ridiculous and I won't be surprised to hear of people crashing their cars into the unnecessary barriers they have placed stupidly around the parking areas. I don't see that they have created any more space with all the changes they have made.
    The range of stores is good and it is my first stop for most of my shopping needs. If they could get Steve's Spar to move into Cresta then it would be perfect.

    I must say that I am rather thankful that I live just five minutes away from this shopping centre. Cresta has undergone a number of big changes over the last few years but it is all really coming together nicely. The parking near the movie entrance has probably been the problem child for them and I'm not convinced that they have got it right yet - there are some interesting and unnecessary islands in the middle of nowhere and I can just a see a "happy" individual having just partied it up at the Barnyard, ramping straight up one of those! The inside of the centre however is really looking great and the tenants are quality stores.
