When breakfast starts with a dozen oysters and a glass of champagne, what can go wrong? My wife and I are very grateful to the helpful staff who dried our soaking clothes. We were caught in a downpour shortly before our flight to Amsterdam, after we had already checked out of the hotel, yet the staff went out of their... More

Great location, good food, very friendly staff, professional and accomodating. The view of the harbor and the surrounding mountains of Devils Peak, Lions Head and of course, Table Mountain are spectacular. Being able to walk to the Robben Island ferry, close proximity to shopping and fine dining definitely a plus.

My husband and I spent 4 nights here and had a good stay. The location of the hotel is for sure its highlight (along with the amazing breakfast!). We stayed in a loft room on the third floor and enjoyed a wonderful view of Table Mountain. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very big with a separate bath... More

Staff were exceptionally helpful and polite,dining in the atrium area for breakfast was a great start to the... More

The biggest drawback to this place is the price, which has gone up dramatically since my last stay in 1999. The hotel itself is beautiful and luxurious. We had a great harbor view room and could relax to the sounds of passing boats and harbor seals. The room was quite grand, the bed was comfortable, and the food was good.... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in July. The general impression was good. The breakfast was one of the best we had during our 3 weeks in South Africa. And the location is fantastic. The room on the top floor was nice and cozy. But we did experience some problems with the room. The drain in the shower... More

Great location and excellent service! The best touch was a hand written note welcoming us to our room; a very impressive gesture! Additionally, there was some construction going on during the day, but they provided free wine vouchers to help "ease the ears." The noise was not bad and did not interrupt sleep. Much appreciated. Thanks for a great stay... More

Right smack in the middle of all the action. Can't beat the location and service. Breakfast buffet is gourmet and the hotel is splendid for couples and family alike. The staff is as friendly and helpful as the best you can find.
