Hotel is outdated, stinky and conference rooms are so smelly. I felt like i was in a 70's time-warp. The photos they emailed me is definitely not what the rooms look like and the bathrooms are dirty. The bed was horrible and pillows are old. The staff were helpful and friendly and apologetic. They only amazing things, they have a...

Spent 7 nights in the hotel, it has an outside pool albeit it was freezing it certainly wakes you up. The food was good quality and always plenty to enjoy. Never tried the restaurant just ate breakfast.

I read some pretty harsh reviews about the CT Ritz. I was however pleasantly surprised. Yes the hotel is in need of a refurbishment, but the level of service, location and value for money more than made up for this. The hotel manager Peter van Eck went out of his way to make our stay at the Ritz pleasant. Dinner...

I decided to try the Ritz as a base in Cape Town but sadly this is a very tired Hotel. I stayed on the 7th floor where the passage has a musty smell about it. My room was clean, the bed fairly comfortable but that was where any luxury ended. The Desk was located outside the bathroom in a narrow...

It was a real pleasure staying at the Ritz Hotel recently. It was so easy to get there by public transport. The rooms have everything you would expect from a 3 star hotel. But not the view. This was 5 stars. The facilities, restaurants, and other amenities make this hotel the perfect place to stay in Cape Town. It was...

I have very much enjoyed my stay at The Cape Ritz Hotel. All of the staff from the Manager down to the cleaning staff have been very helpful. The staff at the desk and at reservations have made me feel most welcome. The views from the rooms over Cape Town, Table View and the Ocean are tremendous- quite unique in...

My trip to Cape Town started really bad when another hotel somehow lost our reservation and found us a room to accomodate us at the Ritz. When I read the reviews online I freaked out of course but then I was surprised how the trip turned out. We had issues with the room they first gave us so they made...
