I stayed at this hotel for a conference. It's beautifully located and the rooms are very modern and well appointed. We had a very comfortable stay. The breakfasts were amazing and the staff was extremely helpful. One staff member even knew that we were hoping to go to the top of Table Mountain and to Robben Island (both were closed for the majority of our stay due to weather conditions) and would update us every morning with a weather forecast and news on the facilitities. It would have been nice to have stayed closer to town, but a taxi can quickly be called and we only once got stuck in heavy traffic heading to the city.
The Square restaurant located in the hotel was amazing. Treat yourself to the tasting menu! Excellent service and cocktails to die for.
We also enjoyed high tea on our last afternoon which was thoroughly enjoyed in the garden.
Two unfortunate incidents:
One of my colleagues had cash stolen from the safe in her room. It was reported but there was little to be done about it.
The Angsanga Spa. I enjoyed my treatments but felt very ripped off on a massage that I booked for my mother. I got a full 60 minute massage as part of a package, and she signed up for the 60 minute head and shoulder massage. Hers only lasted 30 minutes, as the additional 30 mins was "complimentary relaxation time". WHAT?!? When I asked for an explanation on the discrepancy between my 60 minute massage (which lasted 60 mins) and hers, I was told that indeed it was not clearly explained on the list of services and they hoped to rectify this soon. No discount was offered. It was a shame because otherwise the spa was lovely.
