Been at this hotel just a month ago. Location is great, if you need to go to a waterfront area, hotel provides free shuttle couple times per day; we ( with my business partner) got a great suite and access to executive lounge. Lounge was great, tasty snacks and variety of drinks as well. Maybe I would preffer better breakfast,... More

The hotel is good overall. Rooms are clean and bathrooms large. But, do not get a room to the back of the hotel. It faces a conservative muslim mosque where the howling will get you woken up very early in the morning. Service in the bar and restaurant is extremely slow. Most evenings there was only one other person in... More

I arrived in the evening from a long but direct flight from Amsterdam. Arriving at the hotel reception gave me the feeling I was special. During the check-in I was offered a drink. That was welcome for a tired traveller. The hotel room was clean and quiet. I had a marvelous view at the table mountain. What I really liked... More

Having stayed at a Hilton hotel at the start of our trip we chose this one to end our trip on a high! unfortunately it didn't live up to what we had got use to previously! Rooms were fine, clean, bathrooms lovely and supplies fully stocked. One small issue was the air conditioning - it just wouldn't cool down, so... More

Excellent service at this centra hotel in Cape Town. Staff could not do enough to help you. Also has an excutive lounge with free drinks and breakfast free to use for most guests if book an executive room. 20 min walk from Waterfront. Rooms are also very nice and have thought on most things to make a very pleasant stay.

Absolutely phenominal hotel. The service, location and value is more than good. However this hotel is mainly for business as it is situated in the City (not far from beach facilities). The rooms are huge and lost of space unlike other hotels where you are cramp in a small area.
