Unexpected quality in this well situated hotel. The rooms are very large, clean and well designed. I believe the place was refurbished recently. The view is fantastic, just across the street from the sea and close to a lot of restaurants. We didn’t eat in the apartment most of the time, however there are suitable self-catering facilities. The staff was...

Good and helpful staff... for the price it is really Good. The location is amazing, at Sea Point you are close to everything from Camps bay to CBD... not to mention the beach is 50meters away and there is a close by parking so you don't have to worry about finding one each night.

I read some of the other reviews but have not had the same experience. I found the staff really helpful and friendly and keen to please. The room itself was lovely, recently updated I would think. The situation with the parking is that there are a limited number of spaces so you need to reserve one before arrival, I had...

The hotel is ideally situated on the beachfront in Sea Point. The service was very friendly and the rooms were comfortable, although some maintenance is required. The availability of a Nespresso machine in the room was a very nice touch. Just a pity that more parking isn't available, but if we can get that confirmed beforehand we will definitely visit...

Self-catering venue. We stayed three nights and had a very nice room. Comfy bed and a very large lounge / kitchen area. Not quite sea-facing but one could certainly see the beachfront. Bathroom a tad small with a bath shower, but still manageable for sure. Dumbo here didn't pre-book a parking but at R20.00 per day, it's for nothing. Staff...

We visit this very central located hotel yearly. The staff very friendly and professional. Rooms and apartments nice and spacious. Ask for sea view. Pre book parking. Parking safe and secure. Located on the picturesque Sea Point promenade. Very nice for walking and hiking. Close to the W&A waterfront.
