This is probably our 8th visit to Harbour Bridge - we visit Cape Town twice a year for business purposes and have never seen any reason to try another hotel as Harbour Bridge has met all our needs. It is close to the Waterfront - you can get to the Waterfront by water taxi during the day and it is... More

Business type hotel but with good connection to the V&A Waterfront by the water taxi, and close enough to the City centre, comfortable rooms and a small but excellent menu, means an ideal place to enjoy a visit to Cape Town

We had a great 3 night stay at the Harbour Bridge in December 2013. We were very happy about the service,the helpful staff and cleanliness of the rooms. We indeed enjoyed summer by the pool and the wonderful food served in its restaurant. A place i would recommend in Cape Town.

The hotels main attraction is location and good value for money. It is reasonable and the rooms are modern and a good use of space. Unfortunately, it has a number of cons: The room had a horrible damp smell requiring the door to stay open but that lets in the noise from the freeway. The service is very slow we... More

This hotel is certainly not suitable for people travelling without a vehicle. Taxis often don't know it and the area isn't very nice. The canal service finishes at dusk and on one occasion we couldn't get on a boat from the Watefront and were told there would be a 1/2 hr wait. On our first evening we called to enquire... More

I'm sitting on our balcony watching the sun set with a glass of Chardonnay, this hotel is very good. It is very well located for the V&A (the 'water bus' stops right at the hotel) and only a 4km drive to cable car for the mountain. The reception staff are friendly and helpful and the restaurant staff are a delight.... More

We knew virtually nothing about this hotel. Picked it for a one night stop on the way the next day to the Garden route. It turned out that it was a fabulous find. It is at the end of a very swanky canal. A short water taxi ride took us to the V&A waterfront and the trip along the canal... More
