Can't imagine a better place to stay in Cape Town, under the mountain and round the corner from Kirstenbosch botanical gardens. Friendly and (with the odd exception) extremely helpful staff, excellent airy rooms with bath and shower, gorgeous view of Table Mountain. The hotel was not busy and had thoughtfully upgraded us to a Mountain View room before we arrived. But it is the garden that makes the place - with copious bird life and a resident tortoise popular with visiting children. Tremendous buffet breakfast, with eggs cooked to order, which can be eaten in the inner courtyard restaurant, on the veranda or right out on the lawn under the trees. The one disappointment for us was the main restaurant which we tried on our first night. The menu is relatively expensive but the food looked good and tasted excellent when it eventually came. Perhaps this was a one-off - our waitress was evidently doing her best - but there seemed to be some problem with the kitchen and the production of food was incredibly slow. After that we ate less formally in the bar, which has a simple but excellent menu - try the beetroot and feta salad - perfect!
Hotel staff were extremely helpful in arranging visits to local attractions - ask them to book and your tickets up the mountain on line and print them for you to avoid the queue.
