My husband and I were visiting Cape Town for 8 nights over the February half term and had a fantastic time. The hotel is really well located as it is only a short taxi ride into the city centre, as well as being a short walk to Regents Street which has lots of bars and restaurants. You can easily run...

My wife and I stayed here for a few days for a getaway from a Ethiopia where we live. The location was great, 15-20 minutes from Table Mountain, 15 minutes from Camps Bay, one block from the promenade, and 15-20 minutes to restaurants and shops downtown the other direction. Also, the breakfast had a good variety, the rooms were fairly...

Where to start, I was travelling as part of a bus tour and it took the porters almost two hours to bring the luggage to my room. I called reception twice in that time and was told we have a lot of groups it's just taking time. Sorry but 2 hours is not acceptable. When my luggage was finally brought...

Nice hotel - was a bit disappointed that the rooms were not ready as we were told - mainly due to the fact we had been travelling for 20 hours and just wanted to relax. Lovely location and nice restaurants nearby. It is about a 45 min walk to the V & A waterfront along the coast. Breakfast was very...

A great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The pool seemed to change colour from a blue to a green so not sure if normal. Room was spacious but sofa bed not a comfortable extra bed. Great for a few days, great location to visit the Waterfront and Some of the bays.

It's hard to know where to start. But I can't begin to tell you how disappointed we have been with this hotel. To start with, through no fault of the staff they seem to be up against it. The moment you arrive, the greeting you receive depends on how their day is going to whether you will receive a warm...

Used to be a great hotel. Hotel is shabby, service is poor. Needs a lot of TLC to get back to previous status. Paint is chipped, tiles are loose, carpets are worn, staff are lackluster . Great location.

This is a really good spot to stay and a nice hotel. Lovely pool area and terrace by the bar. The breakfast service is lovely and the staff beautiful and so friendly. I wasn't as impressed with the tour desk, they were not interested in acknowledging or advising on any competition, I guess that's business. The bar seems rather busy...
