I heard wonderful things about this hotel but to me it is average at best. I had 3 rooms as I went with my family. Shaver outlet was broken, towels had hair on them. Most of the staff is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is just not top notch. I probably would stay here again but I would have... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and enjoyed much our stay. Charming boutique hotel with a spendid view over the bay. Breakfast was good (compared to SA similar hotel standards). Our room was spacious and clean. The staff very friendly. Would go back if we ever return to Cape Town.

This is a small boutique hotel with stunning views of the Atlantic situate in Bantry Bay approx 15 min from Cape Town City Centre. The hotel is a small luxury one with attentive staff and great food. The rooms are large and have their own patio with amazing views. Highly recommended

This signature hotel is perfectly located to capture a magnificent sunset on a warm autumn's day (or any other day for that matter). South African's would call it a "Top Billing" destination. Others would call it world class. Beautiful view, beautiful decor, attention to detail, bathroom bliss. Did I mention the view?!
