“Wonderful stay thank you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

We stayed one night for a break from the kids and night out on the town. Thank you it was wonderful. Comfy beds. Checking in was a breeze, the cleaning staff and the restaurant staff were all very friendly and informative. The executive club is a wonderful plus point. Breakfast the next morning was also fabulous. The location could not be any better. We had a great stay.

Room Tip: As for a room as high as possible as the view is nicer the higher you are.

Good location to walk during the day, at night you need a car to go to the Mall or the Waterfront. The room was comfortable, has everything you expect in this type of hotel. The staff was correct and the breakfast very good.

My room had some issues like no plug in the bath and the shower door does not close properly. I told the reception but they obviously did not feel the need to even give me a bath plug. I put a melted chocolate on the bed and it was openso it messed a little chocolate on the sheets,they never even put flea sheets on. Very dissipointed.

This hotel is situated in a "walk- to- anywhere" location, close to shops, The Mall, Tourist Office and the Hop-onHop-off bus stop.
It offers airport/cruise terminal pick up and will transport guests (for a fee) to the beautiful Q & A waterfront complex.
The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and courteous; rooms very comfortable and a good, licensed restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner. There's also an outdoor pool and sundeck area for al fresco dining.
For hotel accommodation in the medium price range, we would highly recommend the Strand Tower.

Room Tip: Request a room with views of Table Mtn. and Waterfront.
