This hotel would be great for business clients but not ideal for holiday makers as it's a little bit further out from the waterfront than neighboring hotels which meant a taxi back in the evenings, however it is a walkable route during the day. There is a tourist desk who are pretty helpful, however we booked our tours at the... More

We had no expectations of the hotel, and were very nicely surprised to find such a well situated and good quality hotel. The staff were extremely helpful, and we were able to book any trips with the travel advisor. The rooms were more than spacious, and well stocked, with a lovely ambience. The breakfasts were superb, and gave us a... More

This hotel wa a surprise package - so close to fabulous shops, restaurants, the waterfront and harbour. Seals right out the front of the hotel. Service great, rooms large and comfortable - couldn't ask for more. I didn't have a room with a beautiful view but others travelling with me did. We ate in the restaurant on a couple of... More

I've stayed at this property in June and July 2014 for a couple of days each time. I remember very well the friendly welcome all the time and the helpful staff. In many respects this hotel is closer to a 4* instead of the official 3* rating, e.g. with respect to the large and very comfortable rooms and the high... More

The checkin was quick, reception helpful. Staff very friendly and efficient overall. I was assured that my room would be quiet and it was. It is in the perfect position for the Waterfront and all activities there and located to many downtown government and business offices. Breakfast buffet great but service slow in one evening. Maybe it is what you... More

Returning to this hotel after not staying here for some time, I was pleasantly surprised by outstanding service and a great breakfast buffet. I must specifically mention the variety of perfectly cut fresh fruit.Service with a genuine smile, by attentive staff members, reminded me of the television ad campaign where one actually feels at home in these hotels.

A perfect location for vacation. Always been a pleasure to choose the city lodge hotels. Same style of room and bed comfort. Breakfast served is good to start your day. The only thing that they need to improve is their internet access.

Great location close to centre of Cape Town with easy access to business district and tourist attractions. My room had all the basic required amenities and was exceptionally large for this grade of hotel. Cleanliness and maintenance to a high standard. Breakfast was good. Lunches and dinners served in "coffee shop" and of reasonable standard and cost. Service good and... More
