I stayed at this hotel for only one night, but it was a very pleasant experience. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The rooms are spacious and very clean. I would recommend this hotel to all business or leasure travellers.

We really loved this property. Perfect location at Century City with 5 min walk to the large Mall and Woolworth Food shop just downstairs. We stayed in Table Mountain view and it is indeed fantastic. Breakfasts are buffet style and although not huge but had everything a traveller need to start a day, coffee was very good. Would definitely recommend... More

We stayed 7 nights. The Room is a MiniApartment of 42 mq and it is well refined, luxury and clean. The breakfast is good even if nothing special. The location is ok. There is a supermarket just outside The hotel and The waterfront and all The main Amenities are 15 minutes drive. The covered parking and The wifi are included.... More

We really enjoyed our stay there. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the chef went out of his/ her way to prepare off menu meals for my kids. Best of all, they had the cbeebies as part of their DSTV bouquet. The only downside is that, they said there was a heated indoor pool available,... More

The staff was very friendly and went an extra mile to make the children feel right at home by providing appropriate entertainment. The hotel had a kitchenette so it was easier to make and wash the milk bottles. The children beds were on the floor, so didn't have to worry about anyone rolling off their bed. The only area of...

The rooms and hotel staff were lovely but the restaurant served the exact same meals for the buffet breakfast everyday. It made us question whether anything was freshly prepared. Improvement is definitely needed!

It was our first visit to this hotel and what an impressive stay it was. The one thing that stood out for us was the consistently great service. Every single individual paid specific attention to service. Even the hotel GM was amazing. He was playful with my little ones and they felt completely at home. We stayed in an executive... More

We stayed two nights. Our iPhone was stolen from locked luggage on incoming flight. The hotel general manager lent me a BMW and driver to assist with the police report. Rooms are great, excellent breakfast, and helpful and courteous staff.
