3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

However, we were very disappointed with the hotel policy of extending our check out time for a few hours to accommodate our late plane flight. We asked the hotel manager to extend it a couple of hours as they almost always do in... More

The visit here is a treat. The hotel is a world class facility that reminded us of Raffles in Singapore. The location is excellent with the facilities and secure access to a very good shopping and entertainment complex that is connected to the hotel. The service was friendly and efficient right from the greeting to the departure. The rooms were... More

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and enjoyed meals there on several others with 95% satisfaction. This time I arrived with a friend for a light lunch during a shopping trip to the Waterfront, therefore arriving via the corridor leading from the shops. We are both partially disabled and requested assistance as the downward escalator was impossible... More

What a fantastic hotel - the staff are polite and helpful, the location and views across the harbour and towards Table Mountain are unbelievable. Our room was large and comfortable with an amazing bathroom. There is a universal socket block with UK socket amongst loads of others. We did not eat in the hotel, except for breakfast, but did have... More

My stay here was a comedy of errors, alas it wasn't very amusing. Arrived late around 11pm and slightly lengthy check-in process but no worries, all good at that stage. Arrived at my room...to find 2 twin beds made up as 2 twin beds. Why would an adult person leave home to sleep in a single bed? I promptly went... More

On a rainy day, we treated ourselves to high tea in this fabulous hotel. We sat in a magnificent room with view on Table Mountain. A 3 course high tea was served (just skip lunch ☺). It was delicious and relaxing and actually not that pricy at all if you look at the whole setting!
