Getting around the city is easier. You absolutely must opt for the loft, its homely and comfortable. The other rooms are way too small, period. The food is good not great though. The staff service is however inconsistent e.g. they gave the loft to someone else after it was promised to me so I had to wait a few days.... More

We stayed at this hotel on the first leg of a tour across South Africa. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of the Gate 1 tour as well as the excellent accommodations. I give it four stars only because I don't believe there was a pool (when it's hot, that would have been a nice amenity) and the location... More

Although this is not my first visit to this hotel, I think it is the first time I am submitting a review. My experience from beginning to end was great. At reception I was met by friendly and professional staff who handles the check-in with ease. In no time I was checked in and on my way to my room.... More

I spent a weekend at this hotel, Nov 28 - Dec 1, 2014. The hotel excelled in every factor. The service staff was exceptionally helpful at all times, the laundry service especially so. The rooms (the entire hotel in fact) are modern and clean, and the room temperature easy to control. Breakfast was a full buffet with plenty of choices... More

This refurbished hotel has the perfect location. Although the lobby and pause areas are pretty average, the room was amazing. I stayed in a one bedroom suite and the room was extremely spacious, very well equipped and had luxurious touches. Would highly recommend the hotel on the basis of location and room quality. Can not comment on dining and hotel... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The service was provided professionally and with a smile. The hotel is conveniently located close to the waterfront (a reasonable 15 minutes walk should get you there or a $6 AUD taxi ride. It has good access to restaurants and a nice supermarket with a great deli and range of food if you... More

I liked this hotel. The rooms were neat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was average to above average. The name is misleading. You can't even see water from the hotel. Nice view of Table Mountain from the street, but not the water. 40-50 Rand cab ride to the water or you can walk it. Travel Guide... More

Stayed for 3 nights showing my British friend around Cape Town. Based at a good location to explore the main attractions of the cape. Walked to the V&A waterfront in 15 min. Wouldn't do it at night though! The customer service was very inconsistent, being either very good or very poor. On checking in they had us booked into a... More

I traveled on business, hence this was a good central point to stay at. The loft room is homely and spacious. The service needs much to be desired, two days the towels were not replaced. Most days the complimentary coffee was not replaced. The toilet paper was not replaced. Over the weekend, the hotel restaurant was not available to hotel... More
