My 14 year old son and I stayed here for 7 nights combining a tour of the Cape with supporting my elder sons school rugby tour.Our original plan was to spend the first few nights at the Bay and therafter take up one of the many excellent and at that time of year (winter) reasonably priced options in Cape Town , however , we became so settled and comfortable in the the relaxed and friendly ambience of this hotel that we stayed put! The road system around Cape Town of course makes this location a very convenient "interesection"between the city and the stunning coastal routes of the peninsula.
The staff are excellent and good humoured and dealt with our many requests and questions in a calm and professional manner. I had left my driving licence in the uk and was having a problem with the car hire companies.The hotel took the problem on board and all was quickly resolved (also thanks DVLA). We dined at the hotel a couple of times and the food was first class. Breakfast was quite special with the most stunning view of the ocean to complement the excellent food and service.
The overriding "feel" of this hote is relaxed , secure and sophisticated in style but nicely avoiding a sense of taking itself too seriously. One slight negative is the the rather drab ,grey uniform of the otherwise charming female receptionists-it needs to be more in keeping with the atmosphere of the hotel. Warm and stylish!
