A great location, if you are wanting to explore Cape Town central. Not only that, but it has easy access to the Cape Surrounds, since close to key roads. So very conveniently located. And has great views of table mountain. The front of staff were all very friendly & accommodating. The room was basic: clean, with desk, TV, kettle with... More

We needed a place to stay for our last 2 nights in CapeTown. Our travel agent booked us here as we requested a moderate priced hotel with easy access to town. This is below moderate price type accommodations. This hotel is similar to a Holiday Inn or Marriot Courtyard. Nothing fancy- basic. The rooms have been recently renovated. The beds... More

This hotel looks amazing since the refurb, the whole hotel looks great. Check in was easy and quick, and we were welcomed well. The rooms are very nice, and the bonus of a room fridge is great news. The bathroom is really nice, and shower excellent. The breakfast room looks very modern, and has a lovely selection to choose from,... More

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

Gone is the Garden Court look and replaced with a very refreshing look , new decor , carpets , paint colour outside. The great thing is the staff and the friendiness of the past is still there. So the warmth of seeing... More
