Recently we spent 4 nights in the Strand Hotel in Cape Town which was amazing.We didnt arrive till nearly 11pm.as we had travelled by car from Johannasberg but despite this the staff could not do enough for us and although the kitchen was closed they still managed to serve us a light meal without any fuss.Even the t.v.in the bedroom had our names on screen as a welcome.One thing stood out more than anything else and that was the Staff,nothing was too much trouble for any of them and one man in particular,Elson,a small little man with no end of energy and attention to detail.Thank you Elson and everyone.The reason for the holiday was my wifes 50th.birthday which was St.Patricks day and thiis made it all the more special especially when with great difficulty they managed to tune in the t.v.in the bar for her to watvh the Ireland / France Rugby game of which she is an ardent fan.Once again Strand Hotel and Elson thank you for your welcome and caring approach.We will be recommending your hotel to anyone from Ireland visiting Cape Town.

Best wishes to all. Frank and Patricia Peare-Keogh.

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet and clean

This was the first time we'd stayed here. The hotel is fairly standard, but the staff are great. Our flight was delayed resulting in a very late mid night arrival, but the staff were very helpful and friendly & the food we ordered on room service food was really good. Breakfast is an usual hotel type breakfast, but again, the staff are super helpful and friendly which makes all the difference.

This hotel is great value for money. Good breakfast selection with a talented pianist entertaining you with familiar songs. Our room had a beautiful view of Table Mountain and the surrounding area. There's a nice little bar next to the hotel for dinner. A hotel I can easily recommend to anyone looking to stay in Cape Town.

Dear "kittykyky"

Thank you for posting such a nice review of the Strand Tower Hotel. I am pleased to read about the wonderful stay you had at the Strand Tower Hotel.

You should definitely visit us again as we have enlarged our buffet options to include more of a "live" aspect where you get to choose the items you want freshly prepared in-front of you.

Our views from the top floors are truly spectacular and it is always nice waking up with table Mountain looking down on you.

Please do visit us upon your next visit to the Beautiful city.

Kind Regards

I read what was said about this hotel before booking it - was very pleasently supprised/ Good clean rooms - good choice of breakfast. Staff on front desk on the ball and helpful - special thanks to Tarique - spoke and understood individual needs.
People wrote ref money going missing - so was little alarmed - BUT did not experience this at all - even left money for the chambermaid who just left it in the room until my wife said it was keft for her.
We stayed on the 16th fllor great views and minutes away from all the night life - resturants and places to have few drinks.

Room Tip: We had an early check in that was accmodated and also asked for room on high level for views ( Table mountain one side and water side on other ) and noise.
