The hotel is a very nice old building with a interesting history of being an old boarding house. Upon arrival we had a few issues with being properly recognized as platinum elite member but speaking to the very friendly GM all was sorted shortly after. The rooms are very nice and if possible use an upgrade to the larger pool...

Not a four star venue. Our aircon did not work. We asked for it to get fixed, it didn't get fixed. It was 30+ degrees. The bed was a double bed, we are used to a king size bed. Breakfast was not four star either. Too much canned fruit and the friend eggs arrived smashed and hard despite asking for...

Compared to my last stay in Cape Town, this was much better. On my last trip to the Cape, all my luggage was stolen in the hotel lobby, so it was nice to see that security was above average and I doubt if they loose your luggage in the Reception area. Our room was very spacious, but our friends room...

Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and large, with 2 bathrooms! It advertises a pool but the pool was very small and the weather was too cold for swimming. The bed was comfortable, but the noise from the traffic outside occasionally woke us up. Location was good relative to shops and restaurants.
