Ideal for the business traveller. Good conferencing facilities. In the heart of the beautiful Mother City Cape Town and convenient to shops and other entertainment areas. By the second day however in a five day stay, it was clear that the hotel chef could relax on the high calorie meals, explore more exciting and different meals, and include some fresh... More

My impression of the reception at the front desk and the welcome was excellent. The staff are excellent. Stacey was especially helpful despite being under tremendous pressure with the large number of guests at dinner. The hotel is very tired - the passages and the room smell of cigarette smoke and is stuffy. The hotel was booked to capacity and... More

Decent hotel, but don't expect high quality. Average facilities and establishment. For example, I had to wait 20 minutes for a taxi in the morning, and the concierge was poor. Positive side is that it is clean and centrally located.

Dear "middlepoint" Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback of your recent stay with us. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the long wait for the taxi. It is unfortunate that you had to wait so long. Cape Town is under immense pressure with all the visitors at the moment and this was unfortunately the reasons... More

I rate this hotel poorly because of lack of security. There is no pip hole on the door and no chain lock on the door. Once you are in, anyone with a key can enter your room. During my stay some one opened my door while I was changing. Luckily I was standing right by the door and pushed it... More

Room marvellous, bright, big and windows overlooking Table Mountain on one side and the sea on the other. Situated in an ideal location very close to Long Street. Staff very helpful and cheerful. Concierge help was excellent, they never failed to come up trumps. Restaurant was disappointing, crowded and food and atmosphere not very exciting.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I stayed for 5 nights and thought the staff were very friendly and very happy to help. Elson made breakfasts a delight with his cheery good mornings. Rooms were very clean and the food in the buffets was amazing. My only one small issue was I didn't really want to swim in the pool... More
