What I have to say might sound a little negative, but I honestly feel that this beautiful little hotel has so much potential. The hotel building itself is lovely, and the rooms have a slight luxury appeal, the staff's service was average and the food acceptable. But what I feel the hotel would really benefit from, especially with business guests... More

The hotel is older, maybe even historic. I got a pretty big room at a very good rate considering the central location and the included breakfast buffet. The staff was always friendly and I enjoyed my time at the hotel. Only issue was with the wifi. The speed in my room was very low and there were connection issues. It... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic, however that is about it that the hotel has going for it. Parking is a major mission - there is no parking at the hotel so you have to park in parking facility and drag your bags through the streets to the hotel. The smell in the elevator is not pleasant. Staff are... More

Stayed at the Tudor on three different occasions for four months altogether. If you stay a month (or 28 days to be correct) one can negotiate a discount which makes it even better value. After several weeks you may want a change from the breakfast provided and may also opt to pay for without and reduce the cost further. I... More

It's cheap, in a very good location and rooms are spacious, but somehow this doesn't really help. Checking in seemed a chore to the 'receptionist,' who didn't greet me at all and when I finally got her 'attention,' showed more interest in her conversation with who appeared to be a friend. Other staff (not all) showed similar attitudes towards guests.... More

If you stay in this hotel, you are paying for the location, nothing else. The bathroom (of our room) needs a lot of elbow grease and tender loving care. The bathroom mirror was untidily attached to a nail with a piece of rope. Despite South Africa being a water poor country the basin tap dripped non-stop. Our room was small.... More

Central location. I had 2 rooms: 1 was tiny and noisy, the other was quiet but an almost blind window. Breakfast seemed large but poor choice. Some staff was friendly. Bathrooms not arranged "logically".

Great location. Central to everything. A great market in Greenmarket Square for all your tourist buys. Just off Long Street which is a party street. 20 minute walk to V&A Waterfront for great international shopping and food. Good variety at breakfast. WIFI broken. Unfriendly staff Super bedroom with a balcony

We have enjoyed several stays at the Tudor. Our prior visits were in higher end Hotels but they felt cold and lacked the personality of the Tudor. Yes.. it is dated but the location can't be beat and the staff are friendly, helpful and honest. The family room is excellent but it is unquestionably noisier than rooms at the back.... More

A last-minute booking as we needed a place to sleep. That's what we got, but considering the price it wasn't worthwhile. Noise from the street very noticeable. The entire place feels run down and dirty. Actally really visibly dirty. Ironically, the bathroom felt like the most fresh place in the room. Until we found a cockroach in it. There wasn't... More
