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.

stayed here for a family wedding, ideal for the water front rooms clean, food good service slow would stay here again, very helpful staff, parking was sometimes difficult but otherwise ok, was also ideal for local street markets and a short walk to squirrel park.

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

We visited the hotel on 10 Dec 2014. After waiting 20 into get checked in (although there was no other guest checking in) the room was clean but old. At 08600 the next morning room service woke us up to clean our room. We were not even awake or dressed. The breakfast was below par and check out was also... More

We arrived at 3 in the morning after 13hrs travelling. We payed for our stay although the entrance appearance left us sceptical to their 4 star rating. We got into a very dirty looking elevator,reached our floor and walk down a very soiled looking carpet passage to our room. The final straw came when we were warmly greeted by a... More
