This was a lovely hotel and we really enjoyed our stay there. The location was great, in a quiet area in walking distance to the sea and to several restaurants. The room was excellent, (very clean and comfortable) and the staff were friendly and helpful. They booked taxis (which are very cheap if you are from the uk) and trips for us (but you needed to know what you wanted, they didn't suggest things.) The breakfasts were excellent. There is a Spur restaurant next door which is American diner style and which also provided bar meals in the hotel. It is not very near to the fashionable V & A Waterfront , but only 5 or 10 mins by taxi, and we actually walked there one morning along the sea front which took about an hour. There are fixed ipads in the foyer which are free for guests to use. The pool is ridiculously small if you want to swim, but there is a large public open air pool on the sea front withing easy walking distance. There is a bus stop around the corner for hop on hop off style city tours (2 different ones) which take you to all places of interest with a headphone commentary. All in all it was excellent value for a 3 star hotel and we couldn't understand some of the negative reviews which we read.
