I enjoyed staying here, the room was comfortable. It was, however, rather inconvenient that the restaurant closed at 21:15 on a Saturday night. The info guide said it would be open until 21:30 and at 21:10 we were told they kitchen has closed.

Stayed in one of their larger rooms for almost a week - very good for the price. Staff were very helpful with my bike rental. Good restaurant and food in the lobby. Location downtown near Company Gardens is convenient.

Trees Restaurant was such a pleasant surprise! Our waiter, Yanik, made the evening a memorable one and we will surely be back soon! Thank you Yanik! Good value for money (especially with the autumn menu) and a very pleasant atmosphere! Comfortable and quiet! Looking forward to our next visit!

Well positioned hotel with rooms offering views of Table Mountain. Beautiful well equipped rooms. Stylish and contemporary. Didnt mind the glass walls in the bathroom. There was sufficient privacy. Lots to eat at the buffet breakfast. Ate in the restaurant on 2 evenings and although service was a little slow at times, the food nonetheless was very good. Short taxi... More

I always stay at the Townhouse in Cape Town for business due to it's great central location - Parliament Gardens are just around the corner - and nice rooms.

Fantastic central venue for conferences and seminar. Sumptuous food at restaurant upstairs. The classic place to visit before or after Parliament or to wait for a meeting. Nice bar and lounge downstairs. Good links to taxi companies to visit Waterfront or sightseeing in Cpt. Dining area a bit cramped when full.

Our first hotel on our holiday. Tea/Coffee facilities available. Quite a nice hotel. Breakfast good and plentiful, tho' service a little slow. Drink reasonably priced, for a hotel. The only downfall was a glass door at the toilet - couldn't work out the reason. No privacy! Enjoy!

We loved this little Gem. We were out and about a lot but it is right downtown and has a great restaurant. People dining at the next table were staying at the Taj that has a cool bar but not much of a menu. The staff were very accommodating for us and our son. Great suite, very stylish.
