“Excellent Location - Great Staff”
Reviewed March 28, 2011

We have stayed at this hotel several times and it makes a great base. Although it was refurbished for the football a couple of years ago the apartments have been abused by other guests so are on the scruffy side. They are however spotlessly clean, the maids are very helpful if you need extra crockery etc. If you need something ask! Nothing is too much trouble. Reception are so friendly and helpful.
It is a fairly basic hotel. The pool is just a plunge pool but there is a public pool nearby if you want to swim. More often than not I've had the pool area to myself so the size of this area isn't a problem.
Unless you have the larger apartments at the front, the balconies are just functional - you can see the sea but wouldn't describe it as a sea view. Not exactly for sitting out on, in the evening with a nice glass of wine but fine for morning coffee & reading the paper.
The only down side is the other clientele, it can be used by large groups of students who want to party.
It is an ideal base for the more independent holiday maker.

Reviewed February 25, 2006

We have just returned after a wonderful holiday in Cape Town. Feb-2006. It was a pity the hotel was nothing like shown on Expedia. It states hotel is modern decor with kitchenette overlooking the sea. With outdoor swimming pool where you can watch the sun setting over the sea with a drink.
The hotel had badly stained carpets and cracks down most of the walls. The kitchenette had not enough cups bowls or cutlery for 2 people to just have breakfast in their room. The swimming pool is a size of a paddling pool with a high wall around with no possible view of the sea. Next to a busy main highway. The only good thing about the hotel was the staff were very friendly and tried to make your stay as good as it was possible for them.
