Dear The_Captain_12,

Thank you for choosing MRPH&S as your "home" whilst visiting our beautiful city recently. I must admit your comment "...unbelievable service- gracious, helpful and always friendly. Far exceeded our expectations." made my heart swell with pride in that my team and I succeeded in fulfilling what is our function here at the Hotel. That is to ensure that you, our guest, had memorable experience. We hope that you will not stay away too long and come visit again soon.

Kind regards

Desmond

We rented 2 apartments for a staff weekend. The hotel was the perfect place to stay. Central, self catering, comfortable and great value for money. The staff were really helpful. Would suit for an extended stay as well. Spacious bathrooms and more than enough cupboard space.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony is the best option.

Mandela Rhodes Place was much better vs. what I expected. Recommend it especially for families and longer stays.
GOOD
- Professional and really helpful service
- Super convenient rooms. 2bedroom room that we took had 2 bathrooms, spacious living room and kitchen!
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Swimming pool - long and clean
- Parking
- Downtown location but easy to reach despite traffic

TO IMPROVE
- Breakfast is served in the ground floor restaurant that is independent from the hotel. Staff there was not always very friendly - seemed that hotal guests are some kind of pain for them.

Dear MacTka,

Thank you for choosing Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel and Spa as your "home" whilst visiting our beautiful city. I was delighted to have read your commentary and especially about team living up to that ethos we embody, UBUNTU. That said, I was less than happy to have read about the restaurant team and will address this with them.

We look forward to your next visit and will keep you room ready,.

I stayed there with my family for only 1 night on Friday, 18 May 2013, but the hotel really exceeded my expectation. We are allowed to check in early, the process was very quick, the staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a Deluxe apartment and I must say that it is very spacious, well appointed, fully equipped kitchen with everything you need, 2x bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and so much more..

I really recommend anyone with children, to stay at this hotel. Even friends who do not want to share a bedroom.

Breakfast was really great, quality of the food was amazing and the service was good too. All round 5 star rating.

Cannot wait to come again soon for a long stay!

I recently stayed at Mandela Rhodes Place in the Cape Town CBD to celebrate a friend's birthday. It was great value for money (I made use of a winter warmer special they had on). The meals at the Doppio Zero restaurant in the building (included in the special) were great! The ambience and location is great for the CBD and I liked the modern yet comfortable decor of the apartment which also had a fully equipped kitchen and even a washing machine!

Room Tip: I stayed in room C303 which was very comforable and had a great view of Table Mountain from the balc...

On the first occassion I was woken up at five am with someone wanting to deliver a phone charger. Two days later I was woken up at three am with a request to check an ironing board. Both times I was told that they have the wrong room number. Totally unacceptable . I recommend not staying there if sleep is important.
