It was my first visit to South Africa for a official reason but I wanted to get the taste of the country too. What better way but to stay away from typical high-rise hotels that you will find everywhere. At Saint James the surroundings are so serene and the decor is so tastefully done that you immediately feel at home.... More

What a pleasure to stay at the St. James. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable (the bed was a dream) and my husband appreciated the free wifi connection so he could work. The staff was very friendly and most helpful. We definitely will return.

We stayed here for two nights on our recent honeymoon stay. A well decorated and luxurious feeling hotel, with very attentive and helpful staff - Charity at the front desk took very good care of us! We requested a room change as the first room had an open plan bedroom/bathroom! The second bathroom had a standalone bath with no shower... More

A little hotel with a very personal touch. The rooms are nice (we got a less spacious room, but it was still really okay), clean and comfy, good wifi connection all over the place, and a rich & tasty breakfast. The coffee was a delight, which is not something that should be taken for granted :-) The staff are friendly... More

Travelling to support a school waterpolo tour, a friend took care of all of our arrangements and so I had no idea what to expect until we arrived, what a delight! Beautiful well appointed room, friendly helpful staff, great coffee and food and just an overall treat. From restaurant reservations, to any request, nothing was too much trouble and my... More

I stayed at the St James on Venice for roughly a month and I was comfortable the whole time of my trip. This hotel is definitely one of the top in it's price range but after a while it became a bit of a Faulty Towers to me. Maybe it was because I stayed long enough to notice. The decor... More
