Situated so close to the V&A the hotel's location is a just short walk away. The rooms are warm, comfort and quiet, the restaurant is very good, great breakfasts, a nice onsite bar, with attentive and friendly staff.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of February at the beginning of our trip to South Africa. We had a great room and were provided with champagne and chocolates as they seemed to think it was our honeymoon! We have been married for 44 years! I checked with reception that we had been given the right room and we were told just to enjoy it! It was great to be able to walk to the waterfront which is such a lovely area with great places to eat. We used Uber taxis for other trips which always arrived really quickly and were very cheap! We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet and thought that the choice was excellent. If we ever return to Cape Town we will stay here.

The hotel was situated about 5 minutes walk from the waterfront - which has lots of activities, bars, restaurants etc. This meant there was no issue walking during the evening for a meal with great views over the harbour. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and cheerful. They managed to arrange a tour for us on our first day there, which was great. The rooms were comfortable and well stocked with the usual stuff including tea and coffee making equipment. This is a great place to base yourself for a few days in Cape Town

Had a few days in this hotel last autumn. (Review delayed as been in hospital) All staff very pleasant and welcoming. Room superb but think we were given an upgrade rather than a standard double. Restaurant very busy at breakfast, therefore slow to get hot drinks, which are served, whereas the meal itself is buffet style which is very good and extensive. Also busy for dinner so we ate at a table in the bar.
