My husband and I stayed 3 nights at this hotel the first of May. Our room was very nice. Upon arrival late at night the staff arranged for us to order pizza and the hotel van took us to pick it up. Very nice. The staff was exceptional. We had our best meal in Cape Town in the hotel restaurant....

The hotel offers great rooms for a family, in a stylish building. The breakfast was good and food and drink prices in the bar were a reasonable price. The shuttle bus to the Waterfront was really useful. At times the reception seemed a little chaotic but this was a minor problem. We also enjoyed using the pool. The hotel was...

I recently stayed here with some work colleagues. Very nice hotel rooms. I had a suite with great sea views. I can recommend for anyone lucky enough to be visiting Cape Town and the surrounding areas. The staff are very accomodating. Breakfast choice is good.

Stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. Service is excellent, bar food is very good and it has a nice pool which doesn't get too busy. Lovely breakfast as well. They also offer a shuttle service to the V&A Waterfront which is an invaluable service. Will definitely try and stay here again if we come to Cape Town.

This hotel is perfectly located on the Cape Town beachfront. Beautiful courtyard where you eat breakfast and food really good. This hotel completely lets itself down with service though. I would give them another chance but not in a hurry. I hope in time the hotel recognises that their service is currently their greatest downfall.
