Loved this hotel. Clean, well situated, very well run. BA and other air crews stay here. Excellent breakfast, everything you could want, you'd have to very very fussy if you couldn't find something you liked. Comfy room, lovely large comfy bed. Not at all noisy, we both slept like logs. Free movies, safe box microwave, fridge and kettle in room.... More

It's well located to local coffee shops, the promenade and only a short taxi trip to anywhere in the city which is made even cheaper by Uber.

A very enjoyable stay. Paid just a little bit extra to get a one-bedroom apartment with a sea view and it was amazing. Friendly staff and great facilities. Went for an incredible run all the way along the sea.

The service was good, I was part of a delegation to Cape Town and had a good stay at the hotel. We had dinner when the hotel was having a corporate function so the service from the kitchen was a bit slow, but the food was worth the wait.
