4 of us spent 5 nights earlier this month. The room was large, clean, and very comfortable. The staff was eager to please and exceeded our expectations. Peter Meyer was our tour guide for a very memorable day, seeing the coastline down to Cape Point. His stories made the day very special. The location of the hotel makes it easy to get to the Wharf and many other places. I definitely hope to return!

Great hotel in a fabo position. Comp shuttle service to Waterfront. The Equinox Spa massages are amazing.
WiFi is not too good at night but bearable. The suites need to have more cooking utensils already there. Service can be a bit slow. Overall, I would go back to stay there.

Hands down the best hotel I've stayed in. Huge suites with kitchens, laundry and separate sleeping quarters. Luxious bath products and all the amenities. Delicious restaurant and world class reception.

we stayed in Cape Royale for five days and we found it was perfect. The staff is highly professional and helpful, the rooms are wide, clean, comfortable, refournished with every kind of stuff you might need.
The restaurant is excellent, one of teh best we found during our trip. They were also able to prepare gluten free bread, cookies and muffins for my daughter who needs to follow that kind of diet.
The location of tne hotel was perfect, we could walk to the waterfront and we ha also a spectacular view from our room. They also have an excellent shuttle service who can drive you whereever you like, free of charge, within a 5 km radius. I strongly recommend this hotel and if you go there don't miss the restaurant, it's great!
