Breakfast was delicious (did not have any other meals there) and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is perfectly located on the Promenade with easy walking distance to... More

My experience was really surprisingly great at this hotel. Stayed in Cape Town for 14 days and it was the best decision to stay in here. The best two things are the location of the hotel and it's lovely staff. Always helpful and always smiling. Especially our driver (they have a Porsche for hire ) and people at front desk... More

Stayed here 5 nights in february and had a great time. Superb hotel and location. Food was great and the service was good but not perfect. The staff seemed a little bit confused from time to time, but they were very nice and serviceminded. The rooms towards the pool were awesome.

We visited The Rotunda for a function with about 150 guests. The staff were friendly and the service was good, but the food was an absolute disgrace. We had a choice between butternut soup or a goat's milk tartlet for starters. My husband had the soup, which he said was tasty, but this is where the positive comments stopped. All... More

Beautiful location. Stunning rooms. But wow they need to up their service game: First Room - only hot water out of all taps. Second room - blocked toilet. Housekeeping, poor. Dental floss left on the floor. Glasses on the balcony not cleared when room was made up. Internet service is unreliable and intermittent. They only give you 200Mb a visit... More
