Me and my wife stayed at this hotel in late October 2008. Generally speaking it's not bad but it's a little out of town (you must have a car or hire a taxi to get into Cape Town) and it's just behind the highway. Unfortunatley it's not acoustically insulated and the traffic noise it's terrible at night.
If you do not have a car or friends that will pick you up and drop you down at the hotel like we had, I would say it's not a good choice for turistic purposes.
