Located centrally; the business hotel offered a lot. They have free pressing service, Wi-fi is chargeable, business centre is free to use. The rooms are decent and clean and offer all the basic amenities. Staff was friendly and breakfast had a lot of vegetarian options.

The location is good, as it is short taxi ride to the water front,and lions head and tabel mountain and a short stroll to Kloof street where all the restaurants and bars are located. The bar... More

We stayed here for a total of 4 nights before we started an overland tour to Vic Falls. The rooms were modern and clean. We found the staff very friendly, particularly the reception staff as we had to make contact with our tour operator and they were very willing to help - even making the calls for us. The buffet...

Whilst on a trip to Cape Town I had the good fortune of visiting the Cape Milner. Staff couldn't be more helpful, and the atmosphere is relaxed but classy. The pool has great views of Table Mountain, and is a real suntrap. In short it a a great place, located ideally close to the night life on Long and Kloof... More

Service not so great, people from the city in the swimming pool putting the music very loud and taking all the available space. Swimming pool dirty and small. No ice to do cocktails, unable to do most of the cocktails. The service is slow. Average breakfast. Mistake of the receptionnist about a restaurant reservation. Accomodation is fine.

I spend an afternoon at the Cape Milner hotel with close friends, enjoying the pool. Janine Isaacs, our waitress, took such good care of us … smiling, attentive, and caring… She was just fantastic. I will definitely come back to the Cape Milner for the great service. Catherine France/Canada

The Cape Milner is a fine hotel and adequate in most respects. It's in a nice and quiet location with the ability to walk to most interesting parts of the city. I found the staff to be very courteous but a little inflexible with special requests. The restaurant had a nice but pretty basic breakfast buffet included with the room.... More

The hotel has excellent views of Lion's Head and Table Mountain. Rooms are spacious with spacious bathrooms. The hotel has a very modern feel although you can still see that this used to be an old style building that has been renovated. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant can also cater to your needs if the menu doesn't... More
