Nice hotel in a great area with friendly staff. The rooms are spacious, the food is good and the location is stunning. I always feel home away from home when I visit. I would just like better charging facilities in the rooms.

Some of the basics of a 5 star hotel were missing . Being international guests we did not expect to pay for parking. Room should have an iron as standard . Living room decor is limited . TV channels limited to a few sport and movie channels. Nothing for the kids .

Best place to relax and un-wind. Best Chef in the city and good and healthy food. I liked the self service room, but i really think there must be airfresshners in the bathroom, since there are not windows

Presidential place this and affordable. Spacious bedroom and fancy bar and lounging area. Another bonus was the fact that room service was 24hours - compared to many other 4-star Cape establishments this was a welcome fact. Enjoy my staff, pity I had to endure a hot water shortage at around midnight when I got back to room.

It's all about the service and friendliness here. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We had a suite on the top floor with 2 bedrooms and a sitting room and wonderful views of the Atlantic.

We stayed in this hotel in July, so off-season, but the value for money for our stay was excellent. Hotel is clean and well equipped, staff are very friendly, the restaurant and bar are good and good value, and the hotel is in a good location, close to central Cape Town

I have changed my mind, this hotel has really improved. I was really impressed and would not hesitate to recommend a stay. The hotel has been renovated and the new management is hands on and trying their best. I can only say that I will definitely return.
