Exceptional, one of the best in Cape Town. We stayed 3 nights. It is close to waterfront shopping center. Dinning, shopping, walking around were easily accessible. The staffs were very helpful. The hotel also has world class restaurants. Breakfast buffet was great. We will definitely come back to this wonderful hotel.
