“Very good at outstanding value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is a four star hotel with five star value. I stayed in it last year for four nights at around $60 per night. The rooms are modern, clean and sleek with a generous amount of space. The service is very good,the position exceptional. On one side you have Sea Point which is glorious to look at during sunrise and on the other Table Mountain and Lion's head which is even more impressive.

On the ground floor you have an array of shops including a supermarket which has everything you can possibly imagine at a cheap price.

No swimming pool here and the facilities are a little bit lacking but for what you pay you feel like you have done incredibly well. This hotel has a certain special feel about it that you seldom find in modern hotels of today. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and would highly reccomend it.

This is a perfect hotel for holidays in cape town. Beautiful home, very helpful and smiling staff. Breakfast well stocked ... Olympic swimming pool on the seafront just 200 meters. A perfect location for joggers. All conveniences next to the hotel. Happy holidays

Centrally located in Sea Point ( the area has drastically improved over the last couple of months ) with easy access to the sights of Cape Town. King size bed which was great to get lost in !! lol Bathroom is a modern open plan which we enjoyed. Room was facing Signal Hill and overlooked the street. Noise was no issue. iPod Station for sound system in the room was very useful. A good experience, safe and well priced.

Comfortable rooms. Hotel nicely situated close to Camps Bay & V&A Waterfront - Simply Asia Restaurant, Woolworths food & Spar in same building, etc.
I did not like the king size bed in the double room as they were two single beds joined to make a king size bed. The wash basin was clogged. Simple things thatcould be avoided, though they changed the room the next day.u

A very nice hotel, a little hard to find, has we had to call to the reception to have the exact location. It would be easier to everyone if they just told that it was in the pick and pay building. The rooms and the hotel are very clean and secure location. Loved the detail on the docking station and build in speakers, although it doesn't charge the ipod/iphone.

Food quality is good and staff friendly. And you can find families and young people mingling easily.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 days over the busy Christmas New Year period. Very good location, with free and easy parking. The rooms were large and clean, service was excellent, and the breakfast was superb. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and helpful. Thank you Marylou. Very good value for a 4 star hotel. I will return.

The Hotel really surprises. Modern and comfortable and a 40 second walk from the Indian ocean, 30 min walk to Clifton, a short taxi drive to the waterfront and shops nearby. The staff was really helpful and could help me with anything I required from fax an internet to surf camps an taxis. This plus Lions Head right out th window made for a good stay.
