What can I say about this hotel, than fantastic? We booked four day stay here before we headed on to Australia and booked a lovely sea view room.
The room was really big with its own living room with lovely French like shutters that separated the bedroom from the living room. All wood floors with lovely decor which gave you the impression you were on a boat. It had a big bathroom with lovely shower and lots of complementary toiletries.
The breakfast was really good with everything you could want for breakfast, you could even order special coffee at no extra charge, the only down side is it takes quite a while for the waiting on staff to bring you a hot drink.
The food in the restaurant for lunch and dinner was also excellent with the service really good and the wine even better; best wine in the world is definitely here in South Africa.
The pool area was very nice with infinity pool with really nice sun loungers. The gym was well equipped with everything in good working order and if you felt more like a relax they had an indoor pool and spa facilities which looked fab.
This hotel is about a 10min walk down to the harbour and waterfront which we walked once in the day time and we got a taxi back when it was dark coming back. There are plenty of taxis at the shopping plaza down at the waterfront and really cheap about £3 to get back to the hotel. The hotel does run a shuttle bus free of charge to and from the waterfront every hour or so which we used to get down there once.
Lots of lovely shops and resturants at the waterfront felt really safte here not like I thought it was going to be. Also got the ferry from the waterfront to Robbin Island, book your tickets before you get here for this trip, still the same price but it does get really busy and you may be dissapointed if it's full when you get here.
If I come back to South Africa I would come back to this hotel as it was really good location and good facilities.
