Always clean and great consistent service. It is home away from home. Everything is around the corner. You don't have to travel far for entertainment, food, malls or night life. Staff always willing to make your stay excellent.

Wonderful stay at Cape Flame. I arrived close to midnight but Hlumeka still greeted me with a smile and efficiency. Room was spacious and bed was super comfortable. Great value for money, with kitchenette, microwave and bar fridge. Really wonderful staff and Hlumeka solved every problem, although they were more like just hiccups. Will definitely be back!

I heard about this place from working colleagues. The rooms and massive and comfortable. Unfortunately, the shower lets this place down. The shower is tiny and when you enter the shower, you are standing in the uneven drain.
