  • 8.0.Very Good

    I must say the location of this hotel is fantastic. Beautiful views of the ocean from certain rooms and the most lovely views of Table Top Mountain. Amazing happy hour with one of the best breakfast buffets. The restaurant manager is extremely professional and was helping all staff from the very bottom to the top. Her whole crew from the chefs to the bartenders were excellent! I went with my family and I have two sons aged 8 & 11. Very child friendly with activities just for the kiddies, while the adults could enjoy the pool. The simple lovely touches make this place special and the complimentary Easter gifts made ours sons stay memorable. However, when we arrived in our room the bathroom towel rack was hanging off the wall. Not a first good impression. The hotel was prompt about getting it fixed, but only for their maintenance guy to state in high annoyance that we shouldn't hang on it....! To top it off my youngest had an accident at 5am, called the front desk for new bedding, and a gentlemen stated we would have to wait for bedding until housekeeping arrived at 7am. No ironing boards in room, must request. Overall it is a fantastic safe place to stay in Cape Town with a lot of lovely views, drinks, and history!

    Great experience but the property was a little bit exaggerated in the pictures. It’s a lot smaller than they showed online. The service is great and staff extra friendly. Awesome location with breathtaking views

    Great way to experience Cape Town

    Very pleasant stay! Nice staff - helped us a lot with concierge and trips during the day. Liked the pool and the hotel building. Our room was almost an apartment with separate living room and kitchen! Would come back for sure. Also liked the location.. close to Camps Bay!

    Spacious and modern at a great location

    Overall the hotel is quite nice. I got a suite with a sitting/TV area as well as a small kitchenette in addition to the bedroom. The TV was horrible - only SD signal, channel list very limited, and the picture was very dark on the top half of the screen. You probably didn't come to see TV, but still... Service was great - we had to store luggage after checkout and that was very smooth. The downstairs restaurant is not very good - went down for dinner but ended up leaving after a few minutes as the ambiance is very cold and noisy - feels like sitting in a mall. We ddi have breakfast there the next morning, and although the buffet is quite large, it's nothing special
