Nice location with great sea-side view. At 4 Kms walking distance from Victoria wharf which is a great hang out place. Decent restaurant options close by if you wish to explore outside. Hop-on-hop-off bus stop is just 200 meters away. Breakfast spread was average. Hotel travel desk was not very reliable. Try and book for sight-seeing in advance.

We told our taxi cab driver that we wanted a decent hotel with fair pricing. He said the Ritz and I was a little worried about the pricing, but I should have been more worried about the basic services of the hotel. It was June 2013 and cold and rainy. They failed to turn on the heat and we were... More

We had a very interesting experience at this hotel. We come in and the entire lobby is reeking of smoke. We had told the travel agent that both my mom and I have wheezing due to second hand smoke. The hotel claimed that that they have non-smooking policy but it looked like it was not enforced. The rooms were in... More

Well, it´s an average hotel, regarding the 3*, but I was expecting more from a Ritz... Rooms are not very well cleaned and the linen needs improvement. Breakfast was ok, restaurant in the rooftop with excellent views and good food. The bar have a very welcoming barman, a portuguese, that treats the clients very well. Reception with welcoming staff, but... More

Before I start I am going to let you all know that the biggest disappointment of all of this comes from extreme false Web advertisement that I was intrigued. Firstly let me start off with all the dangerous HAZARDS on arrival, in the parking bay, the sprinkler system (for those of you that doesnt know its the prevention of a... More

I spent six days in Ritz last week and it was a very pleasant stay. The staff is very kind and very attentive. During all my stay the Manager Peter van Eck himself helped me whenever I needed any assistance. The dining experience at the revolving rooftop restaurant is amazing and it's really interesting. I strongly recommend you to stay... More

Hotel is outdated, stinky and conference rooms are so smelly. I felt like i was in a 70's time-warp. The photos they emailed me is definitely not what the rooms look like and the bathrooms are dirty. The bed was horrible and pillows are old. The staff were helpful and friendly and apologetic. They only amazing things, they have a... More

Spent 7 nights in the hotel, it has an outside pool albeit it was freezing it certainly wakes you up. The food was good quality and always plenty to enjoy. Never tried the restaurant just ate breakfast.

I read some pretty harsh reviews about the CT Ritz. I was however pleasantly surprised. Yes the hotel is in need of a refurbishment, but the level of service, location and value for money more than made up for this. The hotel manager Peter van Eck went out of his way to make our stay at the Ritz pleasant. Dinner... More

I decided to try the Ritz as a base in Cape Town but sadly this is a very tired Hotel. I stayed on the 7th floor where the passage has a musty smell about it. My room was clean, the bed fairly comfortable but that was where any luxury ended. The Desk was located outside the bathroom in a narrow... More
