We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon in November 2013 and were tremendously disappointed. We chose this place based on "boutique hotel" and 4 star rating as we had stayed in similar establishments throughout the cape, but it did not come near to the standard. I have read the reviews below and we had exactly the same dismal experience. The lady at reception is incredibly friendly and breakfast is good, but all in all a negative stay. The pictures are very misleading.
The view is spectacular but the hotel is 'cold' and spooky. The smoke smell many other travelers have also mentioned was ever present.
