Easy check in on both occasions we used this hotel. First room was huge, bed was very comfortable; second room was smaller but the bed was equally comfortable. We did ask for an early morning wake up call on our final morning before setting off for Namibia, the first time we stayed, but that never happened! Good job we heard... More

I had to spend 8 days at this hotel and it was a good stay, the staff was extremely helpful in every way. I have a few things that I expect in every hotel which they had just had to ask for it i.e an iron, washcloth (our face towel). I ate in the restaurant once nothing exciting but not... More

Spent six nights in this hotel. Had sea view room which is recommended. Location is OK. Very close to stop for hop on and hop off bus. About a £6 taxi ride to the V and A. Close to laundry where washing done, dried and folded in 24 hours and much cheaper than hotel rates. Close to supermarket and some... More

An excellent hotel in a prime position. Could not fault the room in any way. The Breakfast was excellent as was the dining room. Close to the VA waterfront shopping. On many websites it is stated that this hotel offers a shuttle service. This is incorrect, they will however ring a cab for you and it is up to you... More

Having recently visited this hotel on Buissness I wasn't impressed. The greeting I got when I checked in was great, friendly staff very nice entrance and reception but unfortunately that's where it all ended. The room was noisy and the bathroom was dirty. The fridge in the room was the noisiest fridge I have ever heard and kept waking me... More

We stayed here for two nights during our holiday in Cape Town and was really satisfied!! We had a suite which was very stylish and spacious with great views over the pool and even the sea. The restaurant is a bit expensive for what you receive in my opinion, but they have a amazing breakfast spread!! Will definitely stay here... More

This is a great hotel recorded through out the year, but of you want service and clean rooms -AVOID OVER DECEMBER AMD JANUARY. The staff can't cope the temporary staff as sweet but useless. Poor skills and training and very limited menu matched with even limited service.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. It is a formal hotel with a very calm atmosphere. The view is beautiful and the food is very good. The rooms are very neat and the service is fast. The hotel was very quite. Parking is enough. Very good hotel!

Large clean apartment type room with views towards the sea. 200m from the sea front in a safe area. Comfortable beds and the ability to close the door of the bedroom within the room complex meant a good quiet nights sleep. I didn't have breakfast so can't comment but did eat in the restaurant a couple of times. The food... More
