This hotel has a great location. The public areas are light and spacious and our bedroom was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the sea and Robben Island. The breakfast is one of the best we have experienced. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the concierge booked restaurants and organised cars for us. Could not speak more...

Our cruise ship provided this hotel for pre and post-cruise stays. The hotel is upscale, and in a fabulous location. The rooms were spacious, modern, and clean. Our pre-cruise room provided a lovely view of the water, while the post-cruise room had a wonderful view of the harbor and Table Mountain. We ate one breakfast there, an expansive buffet with...

We had five nights here at the start of our African holiday and it was a great introduction to Africa. The hotel fronts onto Table Bay and backs onto the F&A Waterfront. It also has internal access to the shopping mall with its restaurants and shops. The public rooms were elegant and beautifully appointed, the breakfast choices were vast with...

Was really excited after reading the reviews however, I thought it was dated and need a facelift. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment too, although there was a huge variety, I thought the staff were rude, couldn't be bothered and very rarely did they get your order right. The beds however were wonderful, as was the bedding. There...

What pleasant surprise! After traveling the roads of Namibia and Zimbabwe, we stayed four nights at this world class hotel located right on the waterfront. Every level of service was outstanding. The rooms were large, clean and up to date. Breakfast options were varied and tasteful. Wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend is 6 star hotel!

The staff are plentiful, delightful and helpful. The rooms are exquisite - how's was overlooking Table Mountain. Room service was fabulous / unfortunately we didn't try their dinner restaurant though breakfast was the most incredible meal! Brilliant location and lots of tour information and adjacent to a lovely mall. Definitely the place to stay!!

What a wonderful hotel set in its own grounds, but literally in the heart of the bustling waterfront. Spacious well furnished rooms overlooking the ocean. The whole set up cries out luxury. The security is unobtrusive, but always there. We had three breakfasts there which were excellent in choice, quality and service. Zaytoon must be the most caring, pleasant waitress...
