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

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.

In my opinion, The Lady Hamilton is an average hotel that is need of an upgrade, especially the pool area. I imagine the hotel was stunning when it first opened, but it certainly needs some good TLC. I did enjoy the breakfast and had no problems with the hotel, but I think there are better places to stay for the... More

My room was clean and comfortable. The room safe wouldn't work with a code so after attempts to fix it the staff lent me a key to use. It was a few blocks walk to a bus stop for regular buses and the hop on bus
