We stayed at the Lady Hamilton Hotel for 3 nights before leaving for Johannesburg. The rooms are basic and simple, with decent beds and pillows. But the bathroom was really tiny - and its door wouldn't even shut properly. Wifi was only confined to the lobby - which was a bit of a pain for me since I can't access... More

Clean, quiet rooms in need of upgrade. Food was excellent both for the evening meal buffet - fish cooked freshly on demand and breakfast which is included. Safe neighbourhood with restaurants nearby. Staff very helpful. Free wifi in communal areas

A recent stay here for 1 night was little more than average. When travelling I look for no more than a clean bed so the Lady H passed on that score and breakfast was pretty good for this type of establishment - typical SA 2 or 3 star hotel fare. There is no wifi in the room but it is... More

The breakfast was really good, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was quite friendly. There was free wifi in the lobby, which was quite convenient for staying in touch with family. The hotel staff were quite helpful in booking excursions and seemed fairly knowledgeable about the area. The hotel is also conveniently located with a short walk... More

Recently stayed here for 4 nights prior to embarking on a cruise home to the UK. It is well positioned taking only 20 minutes to walk into downtown Cape Town. Also it is only a 5 minute walk from Stop 7 on the Hop on Hop off bus. Each morning they serve a delicious buffet breakfast with a choice of... More

This hotel was great after a long tour we needed some nice rooms and a place to chill out and explore Cape Town. The hotel is close to Table Mountain (an easy taxi) and you can walk into town. there was a great tapas place at the end of the street which I'd recommend.

The breakfast is not edible! The appalling parking facilities will set you back R50 per night. Don't expect much from the staff! The first room was so appalling we asked to be moved. The second was was better but don't expect a decent shower while you are there. The pool area they brag about is scattered with run down furniture.... More

Location of hotel is good but general upkeep of hotel is poor with door handles falling off and poor decor. It is also a bit noisy. Room cleanliness not the best as had cigarette butts on window ledge.
