Loved the bath!! And great lay-out of the room. Had small kitchenette so we could make food for ourselves but also did breakfast at hotel restuarant. Not huge spread for breakfast but what there was was tasty. Friendly service.

Good afternoon Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Our guests really do enjoy the size of the room as well as the layout. There's nothing better than relaxing in a hot bath after a day on the town or after some retail therapy from shopping at Canal Walk. Thank you once again for the review, and... More

My sister lives in Portofino. We were able to stay at the hotel, yet still be able to walk to her apartment at all hours - even in our PJ's. Century City is on the opposite end - another convenience for shopping and eating. The management and staff at the hotel was very accommodating and allowed us to carry over... More

We were a little skeptical about what would await us when we checked in, as we booked this hotel online. But wow, was it a brilliant surprise. The staff was super helpful and the rooms itself surpasses our expectations. So very many more things we found in the rooms - like the mini kitchenette (with microwave). the rooms were comfortable...

Positive: the staff were really friendly and helpful, the location (just across from Canal Walk, with a footpath leading over the canal) was convenient, there was a pleasant view from our room and I enjoyed the use of the outdoor pool. Negative: the aircon unit outside the room kept switching on and off, and was really noisy when it started... More

Great staff and fantastic rooms made for a very good stay. Also close to the shopping mall, which my wife loved. And beautiful pool, which my kids loved. A delicious breakfast, which I loved. All round we had a relaxing and super-comfortable weekend. Thank you!

I overnighted at this complex during a business trip into CPT and found it to be adequate. Whilst the room was large and the amenities acceptable, there was a definite air of fair use to the room with loose cupboards, flaky paint and average lighting. No room service on offer, but the option of ordering from 2 nearby restaurants for... More

We decided to have a romantic evening and stay over after Dinner and a massage. The room design was excellent, only too dark inside at night. The space in the room was awesome and the ergonomics are fantastic. At that stage I though that we hit the jackpot. The we started to hear a door banging in the quiet of... More

Cape Town South Africa – merely saying the name takes me deep into a Wilbur Smith novel or a Kipling poem. The smells and the tastes of Africa surround you as you step from the terminal. The Island Club is unlike any hotel I've been to – part condo, part apartment, part hotel. The rooms are large with a built... More

Ideally placed next to the main shopping complex, I stayed in the Majorca apartment which was safe and accessible from the main road, wonderful stay, well maintained and lovely, spacious apartments. For a clean and comfortable budget stay, well recommended

Spent a full week in one of the deluxe rooms, and it was a pleasant stay. Nice location at Century City and the back entrance basically links you to the big shopping mall (Canal Walk @3 minutes walking distance), which makes it a perfect location if you plan to mix business and pleasure.
