Great hotel, we had a 2 bedroom apartment which was great. The staff were very helpful. Food was lovely ( only slight criticism would be quite a lengthy wait for all food) and very locally situated. Recommend this hotel ,x

I've stayed here a few times. It is spectacularly good for business travelers. Depending on which side of the hotel your room is on, and the floor, views are quite good. Rooms are huge!! More of an apartment than anything else. Breakfast is buffet and quite reasonable. There are a few restaurants close by for dinner options. Staff are awesome!

We stayed at this hotel last week during our first trip to Cape Town. We didn't get a hotel room, we got an apartment! It even had a washer/dryer which we were so happy about since we had spent time camping in Botswana and really need to wash some clothes! The location was great and close to the waterfront.

I stayed here for a conference a few weeks ago - it was great. You don't just get a big bedroom you get a lounge, a dining area, a kitchen with full amenities and a bathroom! Oh and a balcony.
