Quite possibly the best location in Cape Town - this hotel is close to enough to all the major sites, restaurants etc but far enough way to feel safe and get a good night's sleep (a convenient, if slightly touristy, way to to travel around Cape Town is the red City Sightseeing Bus, which stops just around the corner from this hotel and tours all the major areas and sights). It was also surprisingly good value for such a central location.
Our room was immaculate with a perfect view of Table Mountain (ask for a high floor) and felt safe and quiet. The staff were fantastically attentive, some of the best service we've ever had. From the fresh orange juice on arrival to the happy hellos each morning, everyone went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. There was also a great range of options for breakfast and good service even when busy.
We hired a car on our last day (there is a car hire (Hertz I think?) office opposite the hotel, plus the hotel has an on-site tourist info office which can arrange hire, tours etc.) and the hotel arranged for us to park in their car park which was very useful. There is also wifi and general use computers in reception which you can use for free.
