Stayed 1 night in August. Was a bit concerned about the construction taking place across the way, but you can see that it's not going any higher and that means that all the rooms still have a lovely view of Table Mountain. The guest rooms are all on the 4th and 5th floors (I think conference rooms on floors below that). We stayed in room 414 and although I was concerned that it was close to the elevators, I never heard them, however the elevator part of the building seems to jut out a bit and that does block your view toward the ocean (Table Bay). Nice balcony the length of the bedroom and lounge, so not a problem really.
The room (executive suite) was very spacious and modern with bathtub part of the room, the shower and toilet are behind heavy tinted glass which only allows shadows to be seen when using at night with the light on inside - just a bit of a warning in case you are sharing with someone who is not your partner. I had read other reviews before going, so just to say that now they do have full length mirrors inside one of the cupboard doors. Figuring out which light is which switch takes some doing, and never figured out how to switch off the little light behind the toilet at night. The bed was huge with a TV at your feet, plus TV in the lounge area. The lounge area also had a kitchenette with fridge and microwave and kettle with usual tea/coffee/milk, plates, cups, glasses all there. And downstairs is a Woolworths Food market, so that was very handy. Obviously Canal Walk shopping centre is right there too just a little walk away. Ratanga Junction open in the school holidays for those of you who are kids at heart.
Staff all very friendly. Just a pity we had to leave in a hurry and left a shirt in the cupboard which I reported the next day but they never got back to me. I would recommend this hotel again. Good location, quick and easy to get around from here if you have your own/hire car, but can also walk around to shops, gym & amusement park.
