The room is small. The A/C is Very noisy. It is hard to sleep. The toilet is making noice when water is running into toilet after flushing. The restaurant is extremly slow. After ordering it took 2 hours to get the food. Avoid this hotel.

We stayed here as part of a senior guided tour of the Cape as we were a largish party we did not have the chance to see the menu and we had the buffet over the holiday we had several buffet meals but this was a poor choice option. Rooms and staff were good!

Bear in mind that we arrived at the Queen's Hotel after a 5+ hour drive and after staying in a fabulous place in Stellanbosch. When we arrived we were happy that there was secure parking behind the hotel. At reception we...

a 100 year old boutique style hotel. It has all the basic amenities. The standard rooms are large enough. We stayed only for 1 night on our way to Knysna. The breakfast was really good facing a cute water fountain. Real country experience

A lovely hotel steeped in history. The meal in the restaurant is top class and very reasonably priced. A good wine selection. The downstairs coffee shop make lovely lunches and is great for a light lunch. Lovely hotel and top class staff.

Rooms on the small side. Nice bathrooms. No fridge in our room, which in that climate is poor (although they did provide ice if requested). First room had a noisy aircon however they gave us an alternative room which was fine.

The room looked like it was recently renovated with a small bathroom that had everything close by. I loved that a lot. The air-con in the room was set at just the right temperature and noiseless. Yay.
