The bad reviews on Tripadvisor are outdated as most refer to the hotel before the renovation. (Management ask Tripadvisor to review since you have undergone a major renovation & the old ones no longer apply.) I wanted to stay at this hotel because it recently underwent a renovation. They did a great job & the hotel is now modern but... More

My stay in the Cape Milner hotel for the weekend was excellent.Having just been beautifully renovated it provided excellent amenities and a luxurious room. The manager Jeremy Flowerday and his staff were friendly and enthusiastic to please. A delight.

Great Hotel, amazing food, nice friendly staff, Large rooms. Restaurant on the roof is truly amazing, Pool is pretty decent. The only issue is the access from the road and the location being out of the way

Arrived on a Fri night very late - the night receptionist greeted friendly but was more interested in what was on TV than to book me in.

Incredible service from very friendly staff. A wide variety of dishes on their special discounted 3 course menu. The food was amazing. Venue is stunning. We had drinks at the bar before deciding to eat in the section just outside the main restaurant. ( where we could smoke!) One of the most enjoyable evenings I've had eating out this year.

We spent two nights here recently and found the hotel very dissapointing. The room was not yet ready despite the fact that we arrived at 15h30. The hotel is very noisy and there were banging pipes all night. On our second day, no one came to service the room at all and we had to ask to have it cleaned,... More

Group of us went to dinner there last night... Fantastic experience.. The service was brilliant, the atmosphere above par and then the food came....SUPERB. The Springbuck Loin done medium rare was out of this word.. Slightly smokey flavor worked so well for a usually wild flavor of venison....
