This place is great. The staff is very friendly helpful. They assisted me with organizing several tours and adventures. The rooms are nice and the views are great. If I ever come back to South Africa, which I will, I know where to stay.

Wonderful hotel. Great place to stay. Staff are amazing, actually better than amazing. Location is perfect, easy walk to restaurants, the shops and the beach. Over the years I have stayed at a number of top hotels in Cape Town, and this is the one to beat. Look forward to going back soon!

Most restaurants were closed, especially given how quiet CT is during winter months. So the POD staff went and picked up a pizza and salad from a... More
