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 !).

Beautiful retro lobby , chandeliers and old style wall paper with plenty of seating at reception and the little lobby bar that serves the hotel.
