When we arrived the room we booked was unavailable. They up graded us, for 2 nights, we had to be moved 3rd night. Got in late, to find that the room they had moved us to, stank of smoke, wasn't what we had booked. After 10 at night we were moved to their sister hotel....not very nice, that's why we... More

Hi Mrs Tomaselli, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you were not happy and I'd like to comment on a few things to clarify to both you and our readers. 1) TWIN BED OPTION: When you made your online booking for one of our Standard rooms, you neglected to tick the box indicating that you needed separate Twin Beds....

We stayed here in January and were so bitterly disappointed that we moved out the next day even though we weren't sure of getting our money back, To be fair the owner did after 2 days refund us in full but he was full of excuses. The curtains were torn, the furniture broken and the drains smelled bad. He told... More

The views from this room were amazing with wonderful sun sets. The hotel was very handy to the city sightseeing hop on hop off bus and very easy walking distance to wonderful restaurants and great atmosphere of Camps Bay. Having the balcony of this room we were able to see Table Mountain as well as enjoy amazing sunsets! Would recommend... More

Hi there. So thrilled that you enjoyed yourselves. Cape Town is world renown for its stunning sunsets. And we're blessed to have South Africa's No.1, prime blue-flag beach literally 100 metres away, to enjoy and have fun on. Did you by any chance notice how many people line the beach shore to watch the sunsets? Even in the depths of... More

Room was small and humid. There was no remote for the TV and the manager couldn't help so it meant getting up to change channels which really was a nuisance. Parking was tight and far from secure being open to the street. My credit charge was charged with the bill for someone else's room which, though corrected, was pretty irritating.... More

Hi Andrew and thank you for your review - albeit rather harsh. 1) I have to admit I'm a little unhappy that you chose the subject heading you did - as without your explanation - it is definitely Not an accurate description on what happened. My concern is that some potential guests do not read more than the headings...... so... More

we stayed in the room with the spa bath on the balcony and what an awesome hotel. The service was amazing, the room was fantastic and breakfast was just what we wanted. We will so be going back again.

I stayed at the Primi for 3 nights in May. The staff were lovely, taking care of every need. I stayed in a luxury room with nice views and comfortable furnishings. The only downsides were a dripping tap (Chinese water torture!) which wasn't resolved and a noisy geyser in the wardrobe. Also Wi-Fi wasn't available which was a let down... More

We stayed 3 nights at Primi-Royal. Excellent location in beautiful Camps Bay, just minutes walk from the beach, shops and restaurants. The hotel is situated very close to the City Sightseeing Bus stop and we used this on a couple of days to get into town and around the area as we did not have a car (parking is available).... More
