“Perfect Hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2006

The Pinnacle is one of the most incredible places that I have ever stayed. I am not a fan of big corporate hotels and wanted something special - well the Pinnacle is that place.

Vast, open layout. Incredible service - the butler is FANTASTIC. There's even a virtual art library - beautiful pictures projected onto vast white walls. The furniture is an eclectic mix of modern and antique and the beds are too die for. So are the views.

10% of The Pinnacle's profits also go towards supporting the Kay Mason Foundation (----) so you can enjoy responsible luxury in the midst of Africa's hippest city.

I couldn't recommend The Pinnacle more. It's a shame there's not a Pinnacle in every major world city.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2005

i am not sure words can do justice to this place. i was travelling in the cape town area with 3 friends and we decided to end our stay with 2 nights here. what a mistake!! we should have been staying there the entire time - the pinnacle is phenominal! several different levels with a very open layout and amazing floor to ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the city, ocean, and mountains. everything was very modern and spare, the furniture all had the coolest upholstery - sounds like a trivial detail - but in the middle of such minimalism the bright furniture really popped. there is a small pool shared by the apartments on the 10th floor that we didnt get to test out but looked nice. nelly, our full time butler, was friendly and cooked us a delicious breakfast. the location wasnt super, but it was easy to get to lots of stuff so that didnt bother us. also, the apartment was so cool we ended up hanging out there one of the nights after dinner instead of going out. i think this place is a great value for 4 people, it might be a bit of an open layout for 2 couples travelling together, but is perfect for a girls' or guys' getaway!
