“Great Location, Facilities and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Upon arrival the door man asks for your name, and announces your arrival in the lobby. I am not describing all the details since it is a little startling but fun.

The building and facilities are quite amazing. We stayed in the 3 bedroom suite and it was large with a really nice kitchen, dining room and living room. The service was impeccable and anytime we needed anything we just had to call the butler and our needs were met. The hotel restaurant is quite good as well. The hotel is a 5 minute cab ride to the Victoria and Albert waterfront and the hotel has a car service that will drop you off and pick you up. The staff is very attentive and will try their best to make sure you have a very nice stay.

Check-in: We were welcomed to the hotel with a gong and a round of applause by the hotel staff. And we were able to check-in early, always love that!

The Hotel: Cape Royale has a great location in Cape Town. It is in Green Point, very close to the Cape Town Stadium and the V & A Waterfront. Hotel highlights included a rooftop deck, with a pool and bar, as well as a fitness center and spa.

A two-bedroom suite was what we chose and it was absolutely perfect. It had a modern décor but was super comfortable and very clean. Very homely. I totally enjoyed my stay here though it was just three nights.

Room highlights included two separate bedrooms (each with their own bathroom) and a very large common space with a living room, a dining area and a full kitchen. We also had a small balcony off the living room and one of the bedrooms. (It was nice to step outside and check out the weather before exploring Cape Town.)

Overall: We had a nice stay at Cape Royale and loved our two-bedroom suite. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the hotel location was a great base for exploring the Cape Town area. I am giving this hotel a 4 out of 5 star rating as I believe that the on-site restaurant and Wi-Fi offerings can be improved. I would recommend this hotel to friends any day.

We stayed 3 nights at the Cape Royale and enjoyed it a lot.

Our room was a 2 bedroom apartment complete with kitchen and laundry facilities. It had great views of the Cape Town stadium and harbour.

The staff at the hotel were second to none, outstanding customer service. Being announced on arrival was also very memorable.

Music was a little loud at night from a nearby bar but was not too much of a problem.

Free shuttle available between the hotel and waterfront was very handy.

Definitely eat at the in house restaurant, amazing steaks!!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the stadium

Excellent hotel in good location. The two bedroom suite concept works very well. I stayed in one with my business partner and we found it very convenient to have the lounge space to relax in as well as the bedrooms. I guess it would be even better for a family to use.
The hotel is a safe and short walk from the V and A and there are some very pleasant bars and pizza parlours very close to the hotel itself!
The staff were very pleasant and keen to help.

First Impression the hotel is really luxurious, there is a welcoming announcement to welcome you to the hotel once you entered the lobby for check-in. We booked a suites with two rooms that can cater up to 4 person. The suites was clean with all cooking equipments available it was more like an apartment unit with two rooms.

The swimming pool is very small, thus I wont recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good swim. The restaurant serves very good breakfast. And the steakhouse also serves very good steak.

Location wise it was very close to the stadium. VA Waterfront is within the walking distance probably around 15mins walk, but the hotel provides a free shuttle from hotel to VA waterfront.

One downside was the wi-fi which was capped to a certain limit.

I happened to arrive in Cape town during the Carnival in March, it was really great to watch from the hotel balcony as the parade will march right in front of the hotel from around 7pm to 10pm. However, if you are driving, the road in front of the hotel will be closed for vehicle after lunchtime, therefore limiting your in and out movement. Nevertheless, the hotel provides a residence sticker that allows you to enter the front road up to around 3pm from small road next to the hotel. Make sure you have a GPS.

Room Tip: Room on top floor with front view

Dear Royal Guest,

Thank you for your feedback regarding the hotel and facilities. However I am very concerned about your comment relating to credit card fraud. I hope you would agree on this forum that there is absolutely no proof whatsoever that this credit card fraud took place at our hotel. We took it upon ourselves to help you with this situation and our security manager has been in constant contact with you in order to assist in any way we can. We have carried out a full investigation; interviewing our staff, checking camera footage, we have been in contact with our bank etc and it was clear by the evidence provided that the incident occurred outside of Cape Town.

I do hope that with the assistance of your credit card provider you will get the incident resolved.

Royal Regards
