Amazing views, great hotel, very friendly staff and really great breakfast overlooking a breath-taking view. The staff are extremely helpful and so polite and friendly - nothing was a problem and we were always greeted by friendly smiles. We really loved our stay at the Ambassador and would highly recommend it.

My first visit to Cape Town and I must say the hotel met our expectations. We were very pleased with the service all around. From the personnel everyone was professional with a smile on their faces. The best part was when we arrived we were greeted by our names making us feel welcomed from the start. I would suggest to... More

The view are majestic - even in winter. The conference / banqueting manageress was an absolute star. The service over the two days was great and all... More

I have just spent a two night stay in the hotel. Winter in Cape Town is normally dreary but watching the sun set over the ocean from the unsurpassed position over hanging the cliff face made the winter fade into the distance. The valet parking, in house Restuarant, the reception and the rooms make this hotel a top end value... More

Got 5 nights here at short notice for very reasonable $60 night. Pleasant walk to Camps Bay and easy access with a car to everyhing in and around Capetown. Didnt have water view but rarely in room to enjoy view. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We had a great stay at the Ambassador. The friendly valet whisked our car off to a parking bay and we got a very nice welcome at reception. We were only there for one night, so decided to spend the afternoon having drinks at the Koi restaurant. Drinks and sushi was while watching one of the most spectacular views of... More
