          We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff is very friendly and the lounge area is cozy. The outdoor area isn't large, but is fitting to this small hotel. Would highly recommend.

          The rooms are super comfortable, roomy, and have great views. Easy and safe walk to lots of restaurants and nightlife. Service is great, and the breakfast on the deck was wonderful. We would easily stay there without question.

          We are most interested in having a direct view of Table Mountain from our room. It is not that clear from either the reviews or the photos if that is true. There are several photos of Table Mountain from what appears to be the common areas. Could someone share what is true?
