So, what makes a good hotel? Of course a clean comfortable room - check; fast internet (needs some work); and, of course friendly staff - big check! Just the friendliest welcome at any hotel and after an 11h45 flight from London and trying to check in (very) early its exactly what I needed - perfect!

I recently did a business trip to Cape Town and was booked into this hotel by my travel agents. The hotel is clean and the rooms are adequate but the lack of a decent bar and dinner venue was disappointing. The location for tourists is good as one can easily stroll to the promenade. The hotel was also full of... More

Stayed two nights during business in CT. Room is tiny but adequate. Several light bulbs not working, pump outside room running all night, switches off around 6 in the morning...sleep deprived after two sleepless nights. Beautiful and convenient location though.

The basic rooms are incredibly small (cruise ship room tiny). But the room is sleek, modern and well stocked. The price seemed reasonable by Cape Town standards, and is in close proximity to the ocean. The breakfast is ridiculously priced, but there are a number of restaurants in the area that offer better options.
