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.

Situated on beach road which is great, close to many restaurants and coffee shops, great place to visit in summer so you can enjoy the nearby pools. They also have a well kitted kitchen if you would like to cook. Popular grocery stores are within walking distance.
