The hotel is situated in a prime location, the waterfront is fun, buzzing and exciting! Our room was clean and comfy and a good size - we loved our skylight window with a view of table mountain. The staff are friendly, very helpful and couldn't do more to help us enjoy our stay.

While it is one of the most established hotels and there since the beginning , they have kept it up to date. Really well appointed rooms and loads of room, a great location being in the middle of the waterfront and while our room didn't overlook table mountain ,eating your breakfast with table mountain as your backdrop is pretty good....

From being warmly welcomed by the valet staff, to the smooth check-in and -out process (we STILL want to know how they new who we were before we mentioned our names!), to the view, the charm, elegance and still proper "hotel" experience, the location and the devine breakfast with oysters and champagne, it was one great experience. We will be... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the start of our South African trip. My husband had stayed before through work and wanted to return. We arrived on an early morning flight and were shown straight to our room. It was at the end of the corridor overlooking the harbour and big wheel. The sun was shining and the musicians... More

Stayed here on a business trip last month. The staff were great, the breakfast good but the rooms were tired and needed updating. Tiles were cracked throughout the bathroom and it didn't feel as clean as it should. My colleagues room was much the same.
