Spent 4 nights at the Breakwater August 24-27, 2013. Originally an old prison the rooms are VERY quiet! We'd originally reserved a premium room with a view but upon check-in the clerk, for some reason, stuck us in a room with a view of....a room across an air shaft! They quickly sorted this out the next day (we'd arrived after 10 pm) and we got a room with a great view of Table Mountain and sections of the harbour. The rooms are secure and there are common rooms at the corners on each floor (think "hollow square"). The hotel is actually three buildings all within a stone/cement wall; the self-serve and bar/dining rooms are at the building farthest from the reception lobby. The hotel was very quick to arrange airport transport for us and put it on the room tab. Breakfasts are "all you could want, all you could eat" for $13.50 pp. We didn't eat any other meals since the location is within 3 minute walk of the V & A Waterfront with its wide selection of restaurants, bars, & shopping possibilities.
Clean, modern and yet funky, the ground floor is taken by the South African "Graduate School of Business" which lends itself to an interesting blend of people in the hallways and restaurants.
