We will review this hotel but understand it is closing for refurbishment in April for approx. five months. When we arrived at lunchtime on the 30th December there was one female member of staff at the desk in reception who looked thoroughly miserable and gave us no smile or welcome to the hotel whatsoever - not very nice when you've...

I've stayed at the Garden Court de Waal a few times while in CT on business and its now the only place I'll stay when in the Cape, whether it be business or holiday! The location is perfectly central with easy access to all the tourist highlights in CT, as well as the CBD, which is where I needed to... More

There are several museums in the park, such as the Iziko South African Museum and Planetarium. You also have the National... More

Conveniently located to the central of Cape Town and surrounds. The view of Table Mountain is always a treat. Staff are always friendly. There is now a gym on the property which is rather welcome. Keep up the great work team.

Excellent bargain. Staff was friendly and attentive. Free breakfast buffet was on point---I also loved the neighborhood surrounding the hotel. The only complaint I have is that the bath towels were kinda rough, but a little fabric softener in the wash would fix that. I'd definitely stay here again.

When we arrived at the hotel to check in there was a table with welcome drinks but no one offered us anything. Checking in was excellent and when we asked for a city facing room we were given one which was lovely. I said to my wife that I surely trust that if we will get this sort of service... More

My wife and I stayed here for six nights. The hotel is clean but the bathrooms are desperately in need of modernisation. The staff in the breakfast room were very miserable and didn't interact at all. The air con was very noisy and the rooms were not made up by the time we had got back at 4pm. We had... More
