Just came back froma wonderful holiday in the Holiday Inn. The staff were wonderful the rooms clean and the breakfast is lovely.The only drawback is the pool is small but that seems to be the case in all Capetown hotels. There is also a courtesy bus to take you back and forth the waterfront although it is easily walkable in approx 15 mins. I would definately recommend this hotel.We booked it through gosafari.com and had a really good rate they also provided free transport to and from the airport.

This was the second time my husband and I stayed here. It is such a lively hotel that it makes you feel as if you are staying in the center of things. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. When you walk in the front door, there is a table offering free drinks. Breakfast is served in a lovely room overlooking the garden and the pool, which is a popular place to visit when you are not sightseeing.
My only complaint this time was that they have started charging for the shuttle bus to the waterfront. It is only a few dollars per person, each way, but since it is supposed to be a waterfront hotel, and it is too dangerous to walk there, the bus should be provided free.
