We had a great time at this Hotel. It is very close to an awesome mall. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was great. The management was very helpful and got gluten-free bread for our buffet breakfast. The rest of the buffet breakfast was nice with a wide variety. The room was grand and had everything we... More

I just returned from a 12 night business trip in Cape Town. I usually stay at the Crystal Towers next door but thought for a change I would try out the Colosseum. The star rating is very similar but that is just about where any similarity ends. My overall impression was that whilst the staff were very pleasant and polite... More

After a very happy but tiring wedding day it was an absolute pleasure going back to our hotel. The room was amazing and had petals decorating the bed and sweet treats and champagne. It was the perfect start to our honeymoon and we felt so relaxed in our luxurious retreat. The breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff were very... More

The staff were incredibly helpful, there was nothing to difficult for them including lending me a computer mouse from the main desk when mine broke and I hadn't replaced it. The facilities are clean and of the highest quality.

I spent more than a year in this hotel, I should say that the quality is very good. The view to the table mountain is excelente. All the people that work in the hotel are very kind and available to help wherever I had a problem even if it wasn't an hotel problem or issue.

Stayed here in November 2014. It's a fairly short ride from the airport and near to our offices, so pretty convenient. Not so much if you want to go into town or the Waterfront. It is walking distance to a large shopping mall, which is really handy. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room itself was set up... More

Hi Alli Many thanks for the feedback and high review rating.

Hotel is in a great location and very central to highways and our clients. Lovely restaurant and pub around the corner. The room was magnificent with a relaxing lounge and great view. Breakfast the next morning was pleasant and the hotel transfer to the airport was affordable.
