HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My wife & I spent 3 days on our trip this time, and we found that the hotel services, room, cleanliness food and staff had improved dramatically from when we stayed there 2 years ago, The breakfasts are amazing, as were the dinners. We will only stay at this hotel when we are in Cape Town.

The President Hotel offers a lovely sea view and the breakfast can be had outside next to the pool or inside with a view of the pool. Substantial buffet with hot and cold food served. Secure parking is free of charge on the grounds of the hotel.

Very helpful staff and good service. Nice rooms and well positioned hotel. We were made to feel very welcomed by all the staff. We experienced some car problems and the staff at reception went the extra mile to help us find a suitable garage online. The breakfasts are excellent.

It is very rare indeed to receive top notch service and not just from a few, but from all staff members on every occasion. Other hotels could learn much from you! It goes without saying that the location is perfect with sea views to the one side and Lions Head on the other. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped...

This hotel is in a nice quiet location, but still close the the waterfront. Lovely rooms and great food. The best is the service - nothing too much trouble for the very attentive, friendly staff. The manager Kassiem was most helpful when we had a late pick up for the airport.
