I don't understand how this hotel isn't a 6 star hotel because the quality of their service and food cannot be improved it is just perfect! I had an amazing 1 night stay with their buffet breakfast being the absolute highlight! The eggs Benedict and pancakes are the ultimate treat. Enjoying a stay or meal at the hotel should be...

Our cruise company put us here and before we arrived we always thought we should have stayed at the traditional Mount Nelson or the Cape Grace. Our reasons were evident on arrival - a slightly muddled check-in, obvious tour groups, a big busy corporate hotel. We discovered that our room faced the ocean, not Table Mountain, so we asked for...

A beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Next to the marketplace and great restaurants. Very centrally located. Gorgeous main floor, perfect for high tea. The restaurants were great; especially a full range of assortments for breakfast. I was very impressed.

Great hotel in a good location. Very central to getting around in the mother city. The room was great view wise, but the car parking is not undercover, so your car is exposed to the target practice of the circling seagulls. The room on arrival was not properly serviced, no coffee for the machine. This was quickly rectified by the...

I absolutely loved my stay here! The beautifully decorated, large and airy lobby with breathtaking views on Table mountain was a fantastic welcome to this beautiful city. The breakfast was sumptuous. The live piano music was such a treat - I enjoyed the music while I enjoyed breakfast, sipped champagne and gazed at Table mountain. The hotel staff were so...
