We decided to make a change from the usual hotel we use when in Cape Town and looked forward to "The Hilton" executive suite experience however, found the hotel to be very average in terms of accommodation and food.

Good HIlton with the factilities that you'd expect. I have stayed in this hotel multiple times and the quality is constant. There are some things that could be improved though. I found the table service during breakfast slow and had some trouble with my laundry. Apart from that a recommendation!

Breakfast is "OK", the hot buffet food was generally lukewarm to cold but the omelettes are good. The complimentary shuttle service...

There is no bacon, which is disappointing. The front desk didn't follow-up on two requests. The first request was to have a shirt ironed -- I had...
