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

Had a great stay at this hotel. Ocean view rooms are great. A couple of local restaurants near the hotel, taxi fare to destinations in Cape Town or farther south on the coast to the beach towns was easy. Breakfast included and was buffet or made to order. About two blocks to the closest Hop On Hop Off stop. At... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There's no escaping the beauty of one of the world's favourite places... and the Ambassador Hotel, right on the rocks, is unique in this city of spectacular sights. Every day at the Ambassador Hotel brings a different magic of blue skies, balmy seas and cascading surf. Guests soak up the atmosphere of the ocean relaxing at the pool just metres away from the rocks, in the bar lounge overlooking the sea, or watching seagulls perched on bedroom window sills. The Ambassador Hotel is one of the most spectacular hotels in Cape Town. It is centrally located in Bantry Bay on the Atlantic coastline, surrounded by areas such as the Waterfront, Clifton and Camps Bay, and within close proximity to Cape Point and the botanical gardens of Kirstenbosch. The Ambassador is a luxury hotel with superb dining facilities, and is a perfect destination for vacation or business travel. ... more   less
