We had a great stay here. Breakfast was delicious and about as Covid safe as you can get. Loved the outdoor seating for meals. Staff was very personable. Great location to get to all the activities Cape Town has to offer.

Lovely hotel and great comfortable rooms with wack service. So many times I just wanted to pack up and leave. The service really leaves much to be desired. The experience was just not one that would encourage me to return to the hotel

Dear Stay17872185793 Thank you for choosing to use the President Hotel as your place of home whilst visiting our city. I have read your survey and must admit it saddened me. Please be assured that it is not the standard in which we pride ourselves, and I am sure what you are accustomed to. Your comments have therefore been distributed to the entire team here and will be addressed accordingly and measures are being put into place to ensure that we lift the bar once more. We are constantly aiming to ensure that our guests experience the very finest service and standards at the President Hotel and with this in mind please accept my sincere apologies on behalf of my team and I. Kind regards Desmond GM

Great place for family. The restaurant, food and staff was great. The pool and lounge area was great and the weather was the cherry on the cake! The sleeper coach could have been better but over all- great experience

This hotel will serve black people as long as there no more white people in the queue. The front desk refused to check us in at 1 pm, Ostensibly because we came in one hour earlier, yet they were checking in white guests. We got a bad room near the swimming pool-noisy, disruptive and the house keeping team cleaned it after all other rooms.

Dear Fkarugu Your observations about people of color are incorrect. We pride ourselves in being service orientated towards all guests no matter the demographic. This can be seen from the many a great review we receive from our guest of "color" as you mention. That said, it is apparent that we erred in your service and for this please accept out apologies.

as long as you pay with a credit card you will be covered, but maybe not through an email, go direct to the website to pay, never click a link in an email if you are even slightly unsure.

It's best to check with the hotel prior as not all hotel's offer day room stays. I'm sure it would still be a private room though.
