This is a very nice family-run hotel. Ursula and Michel (the managers) are very friendly and helpful. We had a well-decorated, spacious room. In additon the otel has an excellent location, near to other intersting areas in Cape Town such as Waterkant or the Waterfront.

My family of three stayed in one of the Self-Catering Suites for almost a week. Comfortable is a perfect word to use.

Although we never used it (too many good restaurants... More
