My wife and I went to a wedding in Zimbabwe last year and decided to spend some time in Cape Town before the wedding. I did a lot of research on Cape Town and could not decide what area would be best to stay. We finally decided to just make a choice and be happy with it. After looking at prices and location we decided on The Colony. We didn't really know what to expect, but when we arrived we knew we had lucked out by making a GREAT choice. The location is great in a residential neighborhood. The outside is very attractive and it only gets better when you get inside. We were upgraded to the Lions Head suite and when we stepped out on the balcony we didn't want to leave. The view day and night is amazing. The room was clean, great size and had all the amenities you would hope for. In the morning we were given a wonderful breakfast with made to order eggs and fruit. The Colony is within walking distance to several restaurants and a longer walk to V&A Waterfront. I would highly reccomend The Colony!
