Perfect location. Every detail attended to. Great breakfasts. Easy walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. Large hotel with all the amenities but with a boutique hotel ambience. Rooms and public areas very well appointed. Attentive staff always available.

We have visited several times before over several years and were not disappointed. Soon after arrival, the concierge, Hoon, greeted us like friends and shortly thereafter, Jacques also greeted us in the same way. This helped to make us feel at home, which we always do at this wonderful hotel. The room is perfect for us and I don't have... More

From the moment we walked in the reception staff treated us like royalty! They explained all of the amenities on site and offered champagne. We were made to feel very special. When taken to our room we found macaron's, wine and candy. They knew it was my husband's birthday and continued throughout our stay to bring surprises. The flowers throughout... More

This iconic hotel has the perfect backdrop; namely, Table Mountain and the Victoria and Alfred Wharf. Ask for a room with either a view of Table Mountain or on the top floor with a small outdoor area that overlooks the wharf. The rooms are spacious, beds are so comfortable, there is a large dressing room area, and the marble bathrooms... More

Brilliantly positioned for the Waterfront.Our third visit and it just gets better. The warmest of welcomes and it really did feel like a 'Welcome Home'. The staff are so very friendly and exceedingly helpful. The room and bathroom were immaculate - spotlessly clean. The room was serviced brilliantly every day.
