The hotel was under renovations and as such the rooms were really beautiful, neat and clean. the shower area is big. The food is good and there is a nice pool outside and large sitting area around it. It is close to shops and accessible by public transport

Had a good breakfast, buffet and loved the food. However the coffee machine was broken and the poor tourist were standing and waiting for a while for their coffee. Staff wasn't so friendly as well but the food did make up for it.

In September 2016 I booked I one night stay at the Cape Town Ritz Hotel in Sea Point for the night of 22 December 2016 as I am attending a function in the area. I made the booking three months in advance to ensure a place to stay in that area in the peak holiday season. On the 10th December...

I booked rooms months in advance for my family members to visit me in Cape Town for my wedding. I needed them close to my apartment so that they could help me with my wedding plans. I was inconveniently informed by Getaroom.com that my booking was cancelled two and a half weeks prior to their arrival due to planned renovations...

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever dealt with in many years of travel. We booked several months in advance of a trip to Cape town for rugby. In October they emailed us to say that due to redecoration and change in management they would be charging more for our rooms, and gave us option of accepting,...

I stayed at the Ritz in February and it has taken me over 9 months to get the compensation for a theft from the SAFE in my room. I had 1600 Rands, £100.00 sterling and a Blue Safire and Gold ring stolen. I was fortunate that my passport was found by the side of the bed and my IPhone was...

I have stayed at this hotel once or twice a year for the past 15 years. I always book well in advance so as to secure a good deal. I booked 13 days for Jan. 2017 in Nov. 2015 (14 months in advance) via a UK internet site I have always used. I was about to pay the final amount,...

Should Hotel not have had responsibility to inform my travel agent at the very least that the hotel was still closed? Hotel Should never have accepted booking. Cape Town very busy and now completely out of pocket after refusing to stay in dump they put us in to instead. Disgraceful way to treat customers.

We booked a room at the Ritz Hotel in March 2015 for a visit to Cape Town in December 2016. In October, we received an email from the hotel informing us that they would not be honoring our reservation, and that the rates had tripled, and we would be required to book two rooms. In 20+ years of international travel,...
