I organised a Whiskey Tasting experience at Bascule for a large group of friends. I was originally searching the internet for locations for Whiskey tasting experiences when I found Bascule advertised as a venue. I booked through the hotel's event's coordinator who was very friendly and professional. The hotel organised everything we needed for event. The Whiskey tasting which to... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Was upgraded to a table mountain view room overlooking the Marina, which was a nice surprise and a fab view. Great location on the V &A waterfront,which was safe to walk around at day/night. The pictures on the hotel website are representative of the room. It was a good size and the separate dressing area was... More

Cape Grace is really in a league of its own, there’s something special about this chic yet friendly 5* hotel – when people say it feels like home, it’s true. The staff blew me away, smiling, happy to help but they don’t overdo it which happens too often at luxury hotels. Waking up to a view of Table Mountain was... More

Beautiful and centrally located property only a few minutes away from the waterfront yet a 20 minute or so walk from city center. Food was excellent and the staff superb (especially the concierges who were some of the best I've ever dealt with). I would definitely come back next time I'm in Cape Town. Quick piece of advice when you... More

This is one of the best hotels we've stayed at. The only complaint we had was that wifi access should be unlimited and free but that is a minor quibble. We had a rooftop room with a terrace so a wonderful view over the V & A Waterfront with every possible amenity. We went down for breakfast all 3 mornings... More

We travel so much that one of the most important things for us in a hotel is a supremely comfy bed. And here we had one of the most comfortable beds of the year (alongside the Ferme de Montagne in the French Alps).. Sheer bliss. The service was perfect, genuinely friendly, completely professional and knowlegeable. A reasonably spacious room, a... More

I have reviewed this hotel before and am doing so once again. My family and I have been coming here for the last five years and are blown away every time. The hotel is beautifully decorated and when you walk in, you just know that you are in a six star establishment. The decor is stylishly and tastefully done and... More

This is a wonderful hotel and the service is second to none. We arrived very early in the morning before our room was ready and were able to make use of shower and changing facilities so that we could go out exploring feeling refreshed. Another fabulous perk was the team of chauffeurs who were there to ferry us about for... More
