Spent 4 nights at this hotel and found it to be well placed and the room to be comfortable. Our view was of the shopping center opposite the hotel, but the breakfast room had a view of Table Mountain that was breathtaking. Service in the breakfast room was very good: after 4 meals, the staff knew us! The room was...

I must admit I was not looking forward to visiting South Africa, however I found Cape Town to be very picturesque, the hotel is in a prime position, albeit yes there were renovations going on at the time and yes the complimentary wine, which we did not have due to our experience with the winery tour which soured my tastes...

Enjoyed the location particularly. The views of the waterfront, table mountain, and the carousel at the shops make it extra special. The staff was friendly and helpful. I asked for an additional soap in my room and was told there would be an additional charge! I hope it was just an error of the housekeeping staff.

Renovations were going on while we were there, but to be honest I would have never known it if they hadn't told us so, and offered us a free drink coupon to make up for it. Our beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The toilet is separate from the bath and shower. The only thing I couldn't figure...

This hotel was perfectly lovely for what we we going for--would definitely stay here again. I would also note the creaky floors and the sound carrying from the hallway, but that is counterbalanced by the awesome new bathroom, the amazing included breakfast buffet and the friendly staff. We felt very safe and taken care of here. True, it's hard to...

After travelling for three weeks through four countries in Africa we found the V&A the ideal place to wind down before a long flight home. Our room was lovely with a full bathroom, separate toilet and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was very efficient and friendly.
