Corporate type layout but very pleasing. Excellent rooms and great décor. Very centrally situated for business meetings in and around Cape Town. Good value with a luxury feel. Stay 8 times and you get your own goldfish in your room (looked after till your next trip !).

The conference facilities together with the assistance of the staff was fantastic. Nothing was too much for the staff, they were professional and understanding. The conference was a success which was greatly enhanced by the beautiful setting. Thank you so much Bryan Opert- Quantum Growth

Beautiful retro lobby , chandeliers and old style wall paper with plenty of seating at reception and the little lobby bar that serves the hotel. The rooms were very nice , a standard room has its own mini... More

We received a special rate for Saturday and Sunday nights through booking.com . Roughly R1000 per night for a couple which included a suite , not a room , plus breakfast. Superb value considering the level of appointments in the suite. Booked on impulse on the Saturday morning and arrived that afternoon to blank looks when checking in . The... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed staying at this hotel. Even though we arrived very late at night, they were ready and very helpful. They took time to make us feel welcome and my kids also loved it very much. I will certainly stay there again. Friendly staff, great location, perfect view.

As usual the place was overall great!. Rooms are well maintained, other than the bath tap in room 429 being loose. Dinner last night was fantastic, seafood platter for two for only R129 and I still got a voucher for R50 off. Some room for improvement: running out of Jamersons and coffee service at breakfast lacking.
