Excelant stay, 6 Star Service!!

Thank you to Cape Royale for an amazing stay this weekend with staff making our stay for the Argus the best experince we have had in Cape Town.
The rooms were extremely comfortable with more than enough space for our family of 4. We were able to walk to the Waterfront and city and this made our stay even more convenient as we could leave our car behind and miss all the traffic.
The views from the Sea Facing rooms of the waterfront and the city all the way through to Robben Island is spectacular.

Thank you to the team!!

We will definitely return on our next trip!

My family had the privilege of staying at the Cape Royale during the weekend of the Cape Argus cycle tour and we will definitely be back very soon! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, our room more than comfortable enough for the whole family and the views from our sea facing room, exquisite! The hotel’s vicinity to the city and V&A Waterfront made it the perfect place to stay during the Argus weekend as we were able to get around on foot and didn’t didn't have to deal with the traffic. We will definitely be back for more!

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms have amazing views of the V&A Waterfront, city and Robben Island

What a wonderful hotel! From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, this hotel did not disappoint at all! Such clean, modern & spacious rooms, you couldn't ask for anything more. Our welcome upon arrival was both unique & entertaining! Some of the hotel staff are first class, with a special mention to Sedick who gave us so much great information. His passion for Cape Town & eagerness to ensure we had a fantastic stay make him a real asset to Cape Royale. If you have any questions about where to go/ what to see, make sure you ask for him! The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the V&A waterfront, or there is a complimentary shuttle service which goes once an hour. We ate at the the hotels restaurant Bistro 1800 one night & the food was lovely, although the service was a little slow. The pool area is lovely & you get some great views from up top. We had a wonderful stay at Cape Royale & we will certainly be back next time!

A 5 star hotel this is NOT!! Great location in terms of the Argus, yes. A warm, special welcome when you arrive, yes. Spacious rooms, yes. And that's it!!! Cheap, thrown together, dilapidated furniture with many drawers and cupboards unusable. Absolute horrible, soft and shaky beds and matresses. No welcoming fruit bowl or something in the apartment as is expected of a 5star hotel that love to see themself as one of the best in the world. For a 2 bedroomed apartment the TOTAL SUM of all crockery in the kitchen, a couple of wine glasses, 4 plates, 3 bowls, 2 cups, 2 spoons, 2 forks, 2 teaspoons and a knife...ALL dirty and unusable. Towels DIRTY, HARD, only 1 bath towel and a few hand towels in our bathroom. Amenities really NOTHING to get excited about. A cheap combination of blocks of soap and refillable little bottles with cork stops with shampoo and bodywash. Nothing is done consistently here. First night, an ok turndown. Second night, no turndown, no slippers and glasses, only a chocolate and small bottle of water plonked on the table. On arrival back at the room on the 2 nd day, dirty glasses standing around, carpets still dirty and smelly, DIRTY towels rolled and put back on the shelf, no face cloths, no clean linen. There is NOTHING special or extra here to make you even THINK 5 star!!! No 2 point plugs, no flowers or air freshner, a room service menu with a choice of about 6 items, a GYM the size of a small bedroom with absolute NOTHING, no showers, water, weights, etc etc. The previous review in January 2013 is sooo true, the stairs up to the rooftop pool is smelly, dirty and more. I think they have cloned room 806 and 303, because room 303 certainly is in a shocking condition! I CAN NOT even think of any reason that can justify this as a 5 star hotel. I think the price is a total rip- off, there are so many better options available and the rating of this hotel MUST be reviewed.

One of the nicest hotels i have ever been to. Beautiful and clean, the building itself is breathtaking. Me and my wife spend 19 days there while visiting Cape Town. Perfect location, close to everything. Our room was amazing and we really felt at home. Very professional and friendly staff and the food there is a massive plus. With the spa there my wife talked me into doing it with her and i felt so relaxed. Don’t let me get started about the sky bar and pool deck, at the end of the day we were more at the hotel then in the city. Will return soon.
