We chose this hotel for a weekend stay in Cape Town prior to bording a cruise home to the UK. Did a lot of research but eventually chose this one because we were travelling with our two teenage daughters and there was simply no comparison in what was being offered for the price.
We booked a super luxury 2 bedroomed suite which worked out at an unbelievable £80 per night and this included being picked up from Cape Town airport and driven to the hotel.
Our flight arrived early (8 am) and although our room wasn't available at this time, we were given the key to one of the smaller suites so that we could shower and get changed. Our luggage was then stored while we went out sightseeing. The welcome was friendly and professioal.
The location of the hotel is very good, a quiet area of the seafront about 10 minutes from the heart of downtown. It felt very safe. All the rooms face directly out onto the bay and the views are wonderful. The hotel has a swimming pool, a very nice restaurant and lounges, all very stylish and modern. To say we were knocked out by our suite would be the understatement of the year!
It consisted of one large kingsize bedded room, one large twin bedded room, both with their own bathrooms. All the furnishings were immaculate and very stylish. The bathrooms were particularly good, big showers and one of them had a huge bathtub too. In addition, there was a very large lounge with a kitchenette,fully equipped. There was a sofa bed in the lounge if you needed more space. The living room lead directly onto a very large private balcony which faced directly out to sea - a million dollar view if ever I've seen one.
But the really amazing thing was that there was a spiral stairway leading up from the balcony that lead to your own private roof terrace - totally private - that had a hot tub/jacuzzi spa. What a fantastic thing - to lie in hot bubbles looking at the southern stars and listening to the crash of the surf below.!
Everything was extremely comfortable and of high standard. The free shuttle bus is available to take you almost anywhere in the Cape Town area and pick you up again and the staff will do anything for you.
We would definitely come back to this hotel and would heartily recommend it to you especially if you are travelling in a group, or just like a bit more space than a traditional hotel room. There are suites of different sizes. The one we used as a day room was more like a studio, with a king sized bed in the lounge area, a kitchenette, bathroom and sea facing patio.
I really can't fault the place.
