The hotel staff made us feel very welcome and every one of the staff was very friendly. Rooms are spacious and luxury and the best part was being able to walk to the waterfront! The breakfast was amazing. All in all excellent service

I have stayed here a number of times for business. The hotel is a stock standard, basic City Lodge. The staff are nice and generally friendly. The buffet breakfast is average. Don't be lured in by the name - the hotel is not an easy walk to the Waterfront and is some distance from restaurants and the action.

The hotel is very well situated. You're walking distance from the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town stadium. If you need to go any further, taxis would be easy to come by in the area. The room is fine, but needs a little updating. You have your essentials though and I well sized bathroom with separate bath and shower. Unfortunately,... More

Our room had quite a few problems. The extractor fan in the bathroom was not working. The shower head was clogged. The shower leaked water to the entryway. The elec socket in the bathroom sounded as if it would burn up if you plug the toothbrush charges in. We reported the problems twice in our 5 day stay, but received... More

This hotel is really good value for money. Staff are incredibly warm and helpful. The room was super clean and comfortable. The location is a perfect go to when exploring Cape Town, a quick walk to the V&A Waterfront. The hotel restaurant is ideal for a quick bite to eat and a few drinks, again the waiters are very pleasant.... More

Great location with killer views of Table, but yet well built and quiet. Superb service -- warm, attentive, very responsive. Meals are very good, esp. breakfast -- really enough for all day touristing.
