Situated in the heart of Cape Town overlooking the serene ocean is the very comfortable ambassador hotel. Staff is warm and friendly. Awesome to wake up in the morning to sunrise over the ocean. Prices are reasonable especially if you're staying for long periods. Rooms are tidy and comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped.

I recently stayed at both the hotel and self-catering suites. From the friendliness of ALL the staff to the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms, I felt very much at home. The location is wonderful as is the view. The only problem is that apparently the hotel has been sold, and the new owners are not interested in adding a... More

My wife and I stayed here May/June of 2014 for 8 days on our first trip to South Africa.. The view from the rooms is absolutely amazing, especially while watching the waves during a storm. Wonderful staff who were always willing to help. The restaurant was great as well. Stay here if you are in Cape Town.

Stayed here for one night on business and loved all aspects. Staff are friendly, valet parking, great room, comfy bed, great shower, nice bar and restaurant. And the breakfast is one of the best I've experienced by far. And as for the location and view from the restaurant. Well – that's just priceless!!! I highly recommend this little gem of... More

Very nice hotel, good location. The sea view room was good. What I liked the best is the view from Koi restaurant, it is so beautiful!! Rooms are okay size. But I felt the bathroom was a bit small, and the wash basin definitely needs to be bigger.

pretty standard hotel and not really worth the cost, I moved to far better location as a guest house around the corner in camps bay for the next night half the cost and better view and room. Again if it was one of the "famed" on the water rooms it might have been a little different

When we arrived and checked in at the hotel, ready to relax in their lounge for cocktails we were told we couldn't use any of their two restaurants as they were booked-out for the day. how could your guests not have a place to have dinner, a drink and relax?! well as if that was not enough, on day 2...
