I stayed here many years ago, 14 to be precise, so I really knew what to expect, but I wasn't expecting the reception to be exactly as I left it. The carpet is grubby, frayed and frankly a danger on the stairs as it needs re securing to the stair treds, This hotel could be so much more. The room... More

We stayed as a group and had several rooms but we had issues with most of them, bad showers, holes in towels, air cons not working (and it was hot) or so noisy that you couldn't sleep with them on. No help with luggage and not many smiles from staff at all. Breakfast was good.

Just an average hotel. The view of the Table Mountains is killer though. But the service, food, rooms, just average. Possibly, below average. For example, no one helped us carry our luggage to our rooms and I was traveling with my dad who is 60+ and my mom who has back problems. So I was the only one who took... More

The hotel has a great location down a quiet street just off Kloof St. The room was small but the bathroom looked like it had been recently refurbished. Large reception and restaurant which does a decent breakfast buffet. The WiFi was also pretty fast.

Stayed here as part of group tour but arrived one day early as I wanted to maximise the time I had in Cape Town. Great location and the room was comfortable enough though very dated/worn and bathroom door did not close ( not best when sharing with a stranger ) . The staff on arrival were fantastic - attentive and... More

Hotel was fairly basic in amenities but rooms offered super views of Table Mountain and local area. No wifi in rooms so one needs to sit downstairs to access it. Breakfast was well-prepared and seating was also offered by outside pool. HOtel is within walking distance of Long Street and lots of restaurants.

The location is good, direct MyCiti links to waterfront, Table Mountain, Lions Head etc and near Kloof Street with plenty of restaurants and bars. The rooms are old and dated, the shower isnt powerful and the carpets need re-vamping but its comfortable. I just think the price you pay is too much for the quality of the hotel. It does... More

This was my second visit to the Lady H to visit my brother who lives in Hout Bay. It's a busy hotel with many organised tours passing through for one or two nights so sometimes it's very busy. The staff are brilliant - always helpful and cheerful - and the rooms are clean and well serviced. Food is plentiful, varied... More

Overall a good hotel. Location ok, about 15-20min walk to centre of Long Street & 50-55mins walk to V&A Waterfront. Possible to walk to Table Mountain/Lions Head too if you like walking & don't mind a few hills... Breakfast very good. Staff nice, no problem booking cabs for airport etc.. Rooms clean, showers worked. Minor upgrades would make it an... More
