My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel over Christmas 2012, as we wanted an overseas holiday during the festivities season. This was a last minute booking.
Never before have I stayed somewhere where it was soooooo welcoming. The staff were so friendly especially the guy/ Maitre d who warmly greeted us for breakfast every morning, and the door boy with his beautiful large smile - Wanda I think his name was.
We were given a room on the 12th floor - with magnificent views of Tabletop Mountain and Lions Head - we couldn't believe our eyes, the room was perfect, lovely and clean with daily housemaids to clean it.
We got a lovely surprise on Christmas day when we returned from Camps Bay to Christmas Cookies and a lovely card from the hotel staff wishing us a happy Christmas.
I would definitely recommend others to book this hotel - its very central near all public transport, the Concierge are happy to book day trips for you too. The V&A Waterfront is a good 20 minutes walk. The area around the hotel is a bit dodgy, please do not let that put you off - you get that anywhere in Cities around the world - even London where I am from, you do need to be streetwise.
I would give this hotel 4 out of 4....a lovely experience - thank you Strand Tower Hotel.
