Excellent It was an amazing, staying at your hotel, close to every where and easy to access by car, taxi or by foot. The employees were very polite and gently always ready to help, from reception to the restaurant, were an experienced and young employees were always with happy and relaxes faces, always friendly.The mixes of different races among them...

Comfortable and amenable hotel. Excellent breakfast - huge choice of food and even a pianist to serenade you. We paid a bit extra for a "superior" room - meant we had 24 hour access to the large executive lounge with coffee/tea and food all included. Computers too. Really pleasant perk. Great view of the Lion's Head mountain from our room.... More

We stayed one week in the Strand Tower Hotel in february 2015 and were amazed by the friendliness of the staff. Nice rooms with perfect beds and great breakfast. Staff was very helpful with planning trips and knowledgeable on where to go for good dining. Affordable prices, value for money. Recommended!

we stayed with a group of friends at strand tower hotel. Great staff and ambiance. Wonderful breakfast and the rooms were super clean and spacious. The staff makes you feel like a guest in a small B&B while the hotel has more than 200 rooms. Great value for money. Might be the best deal in Cape Town

We arrived as scheduled at 8am after a 12 hour flight. Our room was not available. They did let us and another couple use the sauna showers to freshen up, but the area was far from private or secure. Our luggage was then locked away for us while we tried to entertain ourselves for 4 hours. On obtaining a room,... More

We had a pleasant stay at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, in particular Fanwell at the Executive Club who went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. We really appreciated that!

When I first entered the Hotel I was quite surprised. Very friendly and helpful staff. Decent sized room with a nice ocean and Lion' s Head view. Short walk to bus station which suited us, corner shops nearby...nothing to fault.

I can really recommend the Strand Tower Hotel! The hotel is very central which was important for us. It's a suitable hotel for families as well because it's a safe area. There are many transport opportunities around the hotel which bring you to the wonderful beaches and sightseeing places. If you prefer a pool, the hotel provides with a pool... More

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
