I must say I was very impressed with the set-up, service and everything else in general at the hotel. It was my 30th crown birthday and they went out of their way to make it more special. A big thank you to them!

I stayed over for just one night alone and I was so comfortable and welcomed tat I decided to have dinner alone which to my amazement didn't feel that way as the waitress ensured I had company. In the morning at breakfast I was once again welcomed and it's like they could not wait to wait on me. Awesome homely...

Just relax and make use of the hotel facilities. Ask receiption and waiters about the specials. Winter warmer dinner special only R195 for a 3 course meal. Heard too...

We stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions during May of this year. We had a comfortable sea view room on the 5th floor. Buffet breakfasts were very good with a wide variety. We also had a number of meals in the hotel which were very nice. Staff were very friendly and professional. Will definitely stay here again....

I left my wallet with all my cards and money at the hotel when I left. I was later contacted by the head of security, Derek Botha, who said someone handed in my wallet at the reception. I was impressed by the honesty of the hotel staff and their effort to return my wallet to me. I would highly recommend...

The suite we were given, and welcome wine, etc. were above all expectations. The accommodation and amenities were excellent. The location was not central but that was not important. We used the restaurant every day and that was also excellent. Altogether a most enjoyable stay.

The hotel is situated in Sea Point area with a picturesque background view of the Lions head mountain. We got the ocean view two room apartment and the view from the room was fantastic. Relatively a safe area to walk around with Supermarkets and restaurants nearby. Ideal for people who desire a quiet location with a nice view.
