I stayed there at the end of a G Adventure tour. Lady Hamilton is a relatively cheap hotel needing to be freshened-up. I had a single room on the 4th floor... without an elevator!! The room was relatively small and the bathroom is tiny. The shower cabinet was not perfectly clean. The room had some sort of view towards the... More

I agree with the other reviewers. This is not a luxury hotel by any means and is in need of a makeover, however the location close to ATMs, supermarkets, restaurants and bars on Kloof Street, do in my, opinion make up for the lack of luxury. I stayed here for two nights prior to commencing a tour with G Adventures.... More

We've been visiting the hotel since 2006, usually on our own. Staff are friendly but sadly the hotel is now in need of updating and redecoration. This time we had a visitor with us, disabled, and the hotel did meet the request for a ground-floor room. However, it was tiny and we had to nudge the bed to allow reasonable... More

The booking.com website said the hotel had an airport shuttle bus but my email inquiring went unanswered. An airport taxi took 20 mins and cost about £15. The hotel is close to ATMs, a supermarket, restaurants and bars on Kloof St, the Mt Nelson hotel Hop On/Off bus stop and Company Gardens. My room was reasonably sized and equipped including... More

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
