This hotel is a great value! Excellent location, great staff, comfortable, if a little dated rooms and an excellent price. Very good food. Enjoyed eating breakfast outside on the waterfront. Given this, I would normally give this hotel 5 stars, but a slight problem – the front desk letting the clock run out on resolving a problem with their taxi... More

The location is perfect. Staff are friendly and professional. From the room we see frolicking seals and cheeky seagulls - quite entertaining! Oh..and breakfast is delicious! The room is large, clean and decor is simple and classic.

I must have higher-than-average expectations for a hotel room. Or maybe I'm just of a younger generation than most of the guests. But actually sleeping through an ENTIRE night without multiple door-slamming, or banging around by the neighboring room occupants- is important to me. Fortunately, there have been no emergency situations thus far at THIS particular S.A. establishment- knock on... More

Most conveniently located in the heart of the Cape Town waterfront, this hotel is within walking distance to many various shops, restaurants, and to a local playground for the kids. There are street performances and other sources of entertainment, including the Cape Town sightseeing ferris wheel. It is safe for foreigners to walk about after dark and is well patrolled... More

Our first hotel in Africa certainly was a good way to start. Friendly staff that greeted you at the door with champagne. Upon arrival, though, we discovered that we couldn't get the suit case open..they fixed that right away. Great breakfast buffet with the usual, and unusual (oysters on the half shell), but they make a mean omelet, as well.... More

After a six day safari, we looked forward to the city life for the last few days of our adventure in South Africa. We were not disappointed. From the private pick up at the airport via Mercedes and bottled water inside the car to the incredible views of Table Mountain from our hotel room windows, this was the way to... More

We recently spent 3 nights at the V & A while visiting Cape Town and our stay was perfect. We arrived late in the evening after a long flight and our room was ready with a easy check in. The next morning we had an early activity so a breakfast was packed for us and one of the staff even... More

After a long transfer from safari we were welcomed by the very helpful doormen and checked in swiftly. We had a loft room on the third floor which was spacious with huge bathroom. We only had a view of the trees in front of the hotel and the wheel behind but we weren't planning on spending much time in our... More
