The Peninsula is set in the suburb of Sea Point on the beachfront with stunning views of the Atlantic, overlooking Robben Island and sheltered by the mountain behind. The main attractions of the Cape Town Waterfront, Table Mountain with its cable-way, Camps Bay, Clifton, Cape Town International Conference Centre, 2010 FIFA World Cup stadium and the Long Street clubs, pubs and coffee shops are all in close proximity. Within walking distance of the resort are shops and restaurants aplenty and the City Sightseeing bus stop 15 is right outside. The hotel itself consists of suites - ours had two bedrooms, two bathrooms and lounge, dining room and kitchen in one.The hotel runs a shuttle every half hour to key points in the city and the most popular is the Waterfront where one can pick up the hop-on hop-off bus to wine estates, botanical gardens, World of Birds, Hout Bay's Mariners Wharf, city attractions and cable-way. There is no shortage of things to do and places to go in Cape Town and we found our eight-day visit far too short. The hotel offers a gym, sauna and modest indoor and outdoor pools. The walking/running path along the seafront is well used by visitors and residents alike and stretches for several kilometers. For the first time in many visits to the Cape, we did not hire a car and did not miss it once.
The standard of housekeeping was excellent and the units are comfortable. The maintenance issues we had were addressed promptly and the "meet the management" cocktail hour on Monday evening was a genuine attempt to ensure that everyone was comfortable and happy. The few negatives - the sleeper couch is neither a comfortable couch nor suitable bed. The kitchen utensils are sparse, but are, with the cutlery and crockery, of high quality. There is free WiFi in the rooms, but is limited to 200Mb daily - a little less than we needed and had to switch to our 3G card most days. The only other blemish was pool tables without cues until the fifth day of our stay. The tables themselves were badly in need of resurfacing.
All-in-all a really positive experience with friendly, helpful staff. We'll be back.
