“Friendly hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stayed in room 4 for 5 nights in August. Our room was on the side of the hotel with the road but we weren't disturbed by road noise at all. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was delicious - lots of choice, fruit, pastries, yoghurt, cereal, bread, toast, cooked english, smoked salmon, french toast, pancakes - it couldn't have been better! Great views over the sea from the breakfast area. The atmosphere in the hotel was so relaxing. The best part of the hotel though was the staff. They were so friendly, the service was incredible. We felt so welcome. They were happy to book taxis and restaurants for us. Patricia recommended some really wonderful places for us to eat and helped us to organise our time. The hotel is a 5-10min drive from the centre of the city and the V&A waterfront but taxis to/from the waterfront are around 80 Rand each way and easy to organise. The hotel is in a residential area that does feel very safe. Cape Town is such a beautiful city - there is something for eveyone here - wish we could have stayed longer.

This property is run by a professional team and it makes a difference. On arrival I was handed a glass of champagne and offered some books to take to my room. Room 8 was spacious with a flatscreen TV, lounge area, outside seating area and desk. The bathroom has both a bath and shower and is modern and clean. The toilet is loacated in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and plenty of cupboard spaceis provided.

My dinner order was perfectly executed and I did not have to ask for anything. The Sea Point promenade is within walking distance of the hotel. Unfortunately it was raining during my visit and I had to use the treadmill. The treadmill was quite noisy.

I asked for a wake up call and a fresh coffee was delivered to my room right on time. The breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented.

Throughout my two night stay nothing was too much trouble for the staff and this really added value to my stay. I will stay at O on Kloof again since the rates were reasonable and the service excellent.

Room Tip: Room 8 is spacious but has no view.

Had lunch at the hotel with a Groupon Voucher. Lentil soup was nice and flavorful.Had a main course choice between a club sandwich and a burger as the advertised chefs pasta was not available.Went with the club sandwich with great disappointment.Chicken on it was dry as biltong, filling was very little and the accompanied salad was poor with stale lettuce leaves.In general a poor experience at a beautiful venue. Will never return.

It is one of the best places we have been. The service and attention to guests are exceptional. Starting from your breakfast, daily recommendations about places and dinning. We have visited the best fish restaurant in the world. Any time you can use driver if you want to have drinks in the city, it is very convenient. Laundry services is like you buying new things. We had possibility to stay in different rooms, and every has it nice feature. Dear team of O on Kloof, thank you for great memories! We've stayed few years ago, but with Tripadvisor I can't choose correct period.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

We recently enjoyed a stay of several days at O on Kloof in Cape Town. Located in the peaceful neighborhood of Bantry Bay, the hotel is close to the beaches and offers a quiet refuge of modern design with every convenience.

Our room on the private lower level was spacious with a large bath. To get to it, we walked through the pristine full-service spa with heated indoor swimming pool. Breakfast is served in a beautiful dining area with patio overlooking the Atlantic, Robben Island in the distance.

Beyond the hip design and lovely setting, gracious hospitality sets the tone in the hotel. The owner Olaf and his GM Bernadette were practically savant in anticipating our every need and desire. Their suggestions for restaurants and excursions enhanced our visit beyond expectation. With their guidance we visited special places in the city and surrounding area that made us want more. We definitely plan to revisit Cape Town and O on Kloof!

We booked for 4 nights as the first leg of our honeymoon and we were treated like kings as soon as we arrived. Everyone was so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, it seems a shame not to mention everyone, however the attention to detail shown by Martin, Bernadette (and Olaf) made this the best hotel we have ever stayed in.

We booked in for 3 nights when my boyfriend came down from the UK. We regularly book into hotels around Cape Town and can honestly say this hotel exceeded our expectations. My bf got there first and received a glass of bubbly on arrival [with chips and olives to snack!] He was then given a tour round the hotel and shown the different rooms. I arrived much later after work and was still given the sparkling wine [even though check in was hours ago!] and ordered a delish cosmo while soaking the sun on the decks. We were then taken to our room which was amazing. [Luxury Room 8] The bathroom was to die for and was massive! Decor was impeccable and the service we received was just outstanding. Breakfast was on a different level. I could not eat any more even if i tried!!! From fruits, bread basket with a lil croissant or danish to cereals, yogurt, coffee/tea, juice and of course your hot meal which ranges from omlettes to pancakes! It was truly 5 star.
Would def recommend to anyone looking to get away and be pampered!

Room Tip: If you looking for a view, book one of the O suites. Comes with Jacuzzi and balcony. If you are stay...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Viva La O! Olaf Dambrowski has reinvented himself yet again. His boutique hotel nestled on the slopes of Lion’s Head, overlooking the Atlantic has been reborn after 4 years of trade! A space, charmingly transformed into a new streamlined sleek look. The black marble tiles from the front entrance, combined with the water feature lend a slight ostentatious air, yet quietly enchanting. They find their way to the undercover “outside” dining area, which in turns allow for interior and exterior interaction. ... more   less
