We stayed at this hotel as the beginning of a tour. For the price of the room, it was good value for money but the rooms could do with a make over. The staff were friendly and helpful. However the outside areas (pool) were not as clean as they could have been and we didn't feel enticed to swim. We... More

At the end of a two week camping trip, we landed at Lady Hamilton. This hotel has great staff - very friendly & helpful even when there's not much time to plan and sightsee. The room was comfortable & breakfast was good. It is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping, ATMS. Would stay here again.

We had 2 nights here at the end of a tour and we enjoyed having access to free Wi-Fi in the foyer and the breakfast buffet was good as well.

I stayed here for one night in January 2013. I found that the staff wasn't nearly as helpful as the majority of businesses in Cape Town. They were also slow to act on requests. The bathrooms in the next door rooms were extremely loud. I could hear someone shave at 5:35 in the morning, it sounded more as if the... More

fine to stay overnight, but not much else. Location pretty dead and not central, rooms small and dingy. Feels old and depressing, needs a makeover. Staff was very nice, and helpful. We had to leave before breakfast, and they were very nice about sending us with some bagged breakfasts. Surprised to see some people thought charming, thought totally lacked charm.
