I stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was very well appointed.The rooms are all large and kept absolutely spotless each day. I couldn't fault anything and think the apartments are good value for money and well located for Camps Bay and V&A waterfront. Hiring a car is recommended which is no problem as the hotel has free parking. The... More

After 20 years (!) I came back to this hotel. It was clear that the hotel was completely renovated. It has turned into a very hip and populair upmarket hotel.

I could not have booked a better hotel. The location is excellent for access to Clifton beaches, Cape Town proper, the promenade, Queens Beach bus stop, and the red City Tour bus. The rooms are well-appointed with everything a person needs to cook for themselves. I was fortunate to have stayed on the 6th floor, offering a superb view of... More

What an exceptional view! These apartments are located perfectly to catch the Cape Town sunset. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. Along with the view, the friendly staff made for a memorable stay. Another useful feature was the valet parking. Parking is in short supply in this area and having this feature was invaluable. The apartments are also walking... More

Maids were friendly and come twice a day and when my tour driver arrived a valet came up to the room to fetch me. Across the street from the hotel you... More

I attended a business conference and my company only found me a room in the self catering suites. The rest of my colleagues were in the hotel. As it turns out the suites are profoundly better than the hotel rooms. I was first in room 1505. Comes with a bedroom living room kitchen bath+shower stall and toilet (in separate room)... More
