This holtel is in a great location and the hotel itself lovely. We stayed in the penthouse which is very spacious and has everything you need. I feel the service really let down our stay here. The staff were really friendly but didn't seem to have a clue. A couple of examples that spring to mind would be when we... More

Stayed here pre cruise for 3 nights. The staff bent over backwards with information and service, they always had a smile to greet you. This hotel had a nice eatery opposite well located in cape town to icons which was easily accessible by taxi. Very clean organised lovely roof top pool ideal for families.

We re-booked here for the spacious universal room but something was just a bit off this time around. It did not take long for smoke smells to permeate the apartment. Clearly some of the hotel guests do not abide by the hotel's non-smoking policy. The following day the apartment smelt as if it was located above a restaurant. On with... More

Joseph Campbell wrote "Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls." Staying here we had space / views / comfort and what felt like no walls. Even great hotels often give you a small space with a pretty view. The North Wharf offered more. The rooms or more aptly "apartments" are enormous, a large... More

Each huge 'room' in this hotel is a mini apartment, with kitchenette, bathroom, lounge and bedroom plus a balcony. It's clean, modern and, although not luxurious, it's perfectly nice for business and holidays. It's 5 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and convenient for everything else as well. Staff were excellent although those in the bar and restaurant were a little... More

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights at the end of February with my husband and daughter. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor which was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. All the staff were efficient and friendly and the breakfast with pancake maker was excellent. The Waterfront is a 20 minute walk away but... More
