Stayed here with my partner in Jan 16. From the start this place impressed. Amazing views overlooking the bay and an open feel throughout the lobby. The pool is a great size and you can order food and cocktails to your lounger directly. We were able to rent bikes at a very reasonable price which allowed us to cycle to...

A good experience overall but spoilt by the price and the restaurant menu - which was also pricy and limited. Excellent area, good parking at an additional fee. Was a busy event weekend and one felt the staff - housekeeping etc were under pressure. At a more reasonable price point would be very easy to recommend.

The Hotel is situated in Sea Point. The rooms are spacious and very well equipped. Unfortunately the service is not good anymore. Breakfast would be very good if they would take care that every thing will be replaced. No glasses for the juice, no bread or toast replaced. Service at the reception not very friendly. Rooms were not made up...

We stayed at The President this time to see if it is as good as the President Hotel that used to stand on the same site. Sorry, but the Southern Suns version was significantly better.

A disgusting hotel to stay at. The front desk staff need training in service orientation and how to check you in seamlessly. Breakfast room staff seem to do you a favor by serving you. The bar could not give me a Lime Cordial as I was told they don't have any. Over all I will never stay there again or...

Really enjoyed our stay and will look at booking again for next years Argus weekend. Very convenient, and was grateful that we were upgraded to a room with lounge and little kitchen. The seaview was wonderful and we were able to walk to wherever we wanted to go.

This excellent hotel has recently changed the management who are obviously improving the facilities with new outside seating. My only criticiism is the quality and choice for eating in the restaurant in the evening where the buffet food is poor and the alternative a la carte menu is very limited when compared with other restaurants in the area.

The President is a well located hotel in Sea Point, there’s plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and anything else you’d need nearby. The hotel has a good sized pool and sunbathing area; larger pool than most of the other hotels in this price bracket. For the money you can’t fault the hotel, rooms were clean and good sized, parking is easy...
