The hotel is close to the Table Mountains and the Harbour. There is a complimentary hourly shuttle to the sea side from the hotel. The breakfast spread was huge and excellent (the lamb liver curry is worth mentioning !). We stayed there 3 nights and had taken 2 rooms, and our stay was very pleasant. The view from our rooms...

Location is good right next to the convention centre and waterfront is a good 2 kms walk. the staff appears friendly and food was good. bed... More

The hotel is pretty boring, the rooms are fine but nothing special. Quite big though. The breakfast buffe was nice but no bacon or pancakes, and the staff was a bit unengaged and really not serviceminded. Wifi was not working when we were there but they told us they had it.

We stayed here for 1 night on 6th February. It is right in the Central Business district. The room was spacious with free wifi and a balcony. The rooms were a little old and needed cleaning. Walls and the carpet were dirty. It was spacious though with separate work table. The breakfast had choices but just didn't taste good. They... More

Pros: Good location across from Cape Town International Convention Centre, free parking in front of the hotel (not covered), DSTV. Clean (even if tired). Shower has good pressure. That's really the only things to recommend this place. Cons: Rather stale late 1980s hotel trying to still retain some semblance of a luxury hotel, but decidedly not. At best, a 3-star... More

After a long flight, we were left waiting in the lobby for 3 hours. The reception staff could not look at me and only discussed the situation among themselves. Finally we got a room and it had not been well cleaned. The carpet was badly stained and had crumbs on it. The balcony (a lovely view of the car park)... More
