To start with the good, the service was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was unspectacular, but OK. Our problem was that this was probably a luxury city centre hotel when it opened - but that was 25-30 years ago and nobody seems to have thought of bringing it up to date (or even decorating it!) Cramped accommodation and "sea view" depended... More

My expectations, albeit low were met by this establishment. I found the service to be exceptionally good, I asked for breakfast to be packed for my team as we were leaving at 4am the next morning and we surprised at the amount of goodies we received. Breakfast at the hotel though was another story, I feel they could have done... More

I was looking forward to seeing what the 4 star Strand Towers hotel had offer. Often one is surprised by the quality of non-chain hotels that actually need to go the extra mile s they don’’t have reward programs etc.. Unfortunately I was to be well and truly disappointed. Whilst the hotel charged 4 star prices, it had a tired... More

On the night of day 1/3 I had no hot water. Called reception who told me to leave the tap running as they were having a problem with their geysers, so I did just that. Left it running a while only to come back to NO running water. Had to resort to boiling water in the kettle and using the... More

In CT for 6 nights on business and this is a superb hotel for being in an all round central location. I walked everywhere! Hotel rooms are good size and clean, comfy beds. Staff extremely friendly. Free wifi and my only bug bear was that when my devices 'slept' the wifi dropped. I have to reconnect every time (not a... More

We enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. Being in the travel business I would recommend this Hotel for group accommodation. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Meals are of adequate variety. The closing time for dinner is 10h00 is great if one has to come in late from the many tours of the Cape that are available. MyCiti Public transportation... More

This place changes all the time. Some stays are good some are extremely poor. Management doesn't do anything about it. Dinner closes at 10 (I stand to be corrected) however you are left with leftovers 30 mins before it closes. Even though one says they do not eat what is left staff is reluctant to make you something, even though... More

We stay here for 3 nights and it is a good convenient place while visiting attractions in the town. Good quality bed and decent breakfast. We had wifi access too. people were courtious and helpful. You may trace a slight smell when you enter; then again so are at many other locations at the summer time.

Stayed in this hotel for six nights, the room was small but adequate for what we needed it for. We had a corner room. The staff could not be more helpful and pleasant always smiling. The food was really good, we had breakfast every day and lunch one of the days. Would recommend and would return. Very central.

I stayed at the hotel over the New Year’s week and was quite disappointed with the quality of this 4 star establishment. When you enter the reception area you are greeted with an awful smell that follows you throughout the hotel-including the staircases and dining area. I did complain about the stench and was informed that they were aware however,... More
