We have stayed in this hotel many times. We were not disappointed on the last visit. New decor is lovely. Breakfast was delicious. The hotel is very convenient for the city. Staff are genuinely friendly - nothing is too much trouble for them. We would certainly be back.

The newly revamped De Waal, Cape Town is a specialty must for travellers on the go, while needing an oasis of space to quash the stress of being on the move. The newly landscaped gardens, set under maple and ficus, set off the Hollywood style swimming pool, where one may be served delicious meals at delicious prices from Zepi's, the... More

I had a wonderful break with my wife at this establishment. Everything was to satisfaction except for the breakfast. The variety was very limited and not what I am used to at tsogo sun hotels. The breakfast staff also had no willingness to help. check- in and check-out was very friendly and efficient. Room was cleaned daily to satisfaction

This hotel has just re-opened after a full refurbishment. The standard of the rooms is excellent and a big improvement. Also the restaurant is a big improvement. The buffet breakfast is of a high standard. You have to make allowances as the staff are still learning the ropes but are all friendly. The move away from a buffet for dinner... More

The hotel is close to the De Waal Road and adjacent to a shopping cent re. It has wonderful view of Table Mountains. Easy access to the city center. Ample and secure parking available. Great breakfast.

Once again spend about two months here before they had to close for renovations - looking forward seeing the re-vamped hotel after September! Staff and manager very hands-on, making sure guests feel welcome and are comfortable. Nice walk through The Gardens are refreshing.
