It was a beautiful day so I thought I'd try a new restaurant along the Sea Point promenade. Although I was a bit disappointed by the misleading of the name, as it is not directly on the promenade as I envisioned, I was happy to stay and try it out. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Having a look through... More

Wow. This was my first time staying in a hotel with so many gadgets. The rooms are most definitely up to date with technology to the little TV remote, the electronic blinds, the apple Mac computers, the coffee machine and so much more - had a very educational experience. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

Visited the restaurant for a lovely Sunday brunch (brunch is on until 4 on Sundays!) with visiting family and friends. Decent prices but portion sizes were a bit small. Lots of options, fresh juices, smoothies, milkshakes, and coffee. Service was a touch slow and water was not offered though. No view of the ocean, but close enough for a stroll... More

We visited Cascades on the promenade when we were in capetown for our honey moon. Ideally we wanted to stay the night and look for another place in the morning but when we got to the room, we couldn't leave. We paid for the next two days early in the morning because we were afraid we would lose the room.... More

We visited for a week in May. The staff were wonderful and so helpful in every aspect. They helped us organize activities, transportation and restaurant reservations. We would definitely visit again. The location is perfect and I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The only issue is the in room internet which wasn't great. The lobby internet was much better... More

We had a room with a balcony and view of the ocean which was lovely. The location was quite good as it was within a stone's throw away from the promenade and there are plenty of eateries and shops nearby. The room was well appointed and had everything we needed. It was also very convenient to have a restaurant downstairs... More

Convenient location for my visit. Surprisingly large room with comfortable bed and large walk in shower. Excellent restaurant . Street parking was easy and safe. Friendly and efficient staff. Cleaning staff were a bit noisy on the floor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A fine boutique hotel, situated along the Atlantic Seaboard, in Sea Point, Cape Town. The concept of this city hotel is to offer "young of heart" travelers an ideal base from where to explore Cape Town and surroundings at affordable rates, without compromising any quality expectations. The ideal guest for Cascades on the Promenade is the well informed traveler, who is interested and anxious to discover Cape Town for what it is... a bustling, vibrant and incredibly beautiful city, brimming with activities and diversity. Our traveler doesn't want to sacrifice valuable holiday-time due to a remote or difficult location of the hotel, away from the main attractions, or battling with internet connection issues, insufficient hot water in the shower or more of those complicated situations that tend to spoil a vacation. Our guests want to get up and about after a good nights' rest in a perfectly equipped and soft furnished room. Breakfast awaits our traveler in the cozy Hotel Bistro or outside on the terrace, where he or she already mingles with the local regulars. The hotel is superbly positioned for immediate action, whether that is a vigorous jog along Cape Town's magnificent Seaboard... or a leisurely stroll... it's all right here on our doorstep... From the hotel it is a five minute walk to the Olympic size, open air, sea-side swimming pool or an even shorter stroll to the Beach Road to catch a ride on the Hop-on, Hop-off Topless Sightseeing Bus, which passes every twenty minutes. The bus takes you on a roundtrip through Cape Town. From the hotel it goes along the Promenade to the V&A Waterfront, through the inner city and further up to the Table Mountain Cable Car station. From there it goes down to the Clifton and Camps Bay beaches and back to the Promenade in front of the hotel. The Hotel The hotel is housed in a Cape-Victorian style, 120-year-old protected heritage building. An extensive renovation in 2010 has transformed the original structure into a very modern, super trendy place with a distinct international flair. Our guest will immediately recognize the spot as a trendsetter, definitely on par with leading small design hotels sprinkled around the larger cities of Europe, Asia or the United States. The latest on offer in hotel technology has been incorporated in the design and furnishings. The seven Deluxe rooms are very "complete". Five of them have outside balconies with comfortable seating arrangements. The two rooms without outside balcony are extra large and can accommodate an extra bed. All rooms have King size (180 cm) beds with soft, leather head boards and build-in reading lights. Remote controlled air conditioning (heating/cooling). Large walk-in rain showers, thermostatic taps, wall-mounted hairdryers and heated towel rails in the bathrooms. A state of the art 40" (1m) LED TV screen, a 23" Apple Mac computer with free internet, Wi-Fi access point, Bose iPod docking station, CD Player, Telephone, International plugs, Electronic Safe, Mini Bar and a Nespresso machine are standard in every room. Nighttime security is provided directly to the guest through automated roller shutters in the rooms and in general through a 24-hour attendance at reception and closed circuit camera's in the public area's. The Bistro Bright yellow Vitra tub chairs on the terrace and black leather upholstering inside the bistro, copper leaf and rich walnut wall paneling, Tom Dixon design lighting and a Samsung video wall for entertainment... the combination of these elements create the ideal setting where we offer our guests a fine, contemporary cuisine throughout the day. On the day-menu are light snacks and refreshing salads, from a choice of pasta's to fresh fish or a prime cut of succulent beef fillet. The "Patisserie" chef makes sure that coffee never goes without the necessary indulgence on the side. For dinner we change the setting for a fine-dining experience with a French style Bistro menu. And of course, there is the bar for a stiff drink, a cocktail or a good selection of South African wines. ... more   less
