“What a stunning hotel!”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

This was one of the most beautiful hotels that I have ever stayed in. The location is brilliant, close to the V&A Waterfront. Spaceous, clean, friendly staff and the food is first class. The bathroom is heavenly! The view on the one side of the hotel faces Table Mountain and the other side of the hotel faces the spa area and the most beautiful, tranquil garden. You can also see Cape Town Harbour from this side. Can recommend this any day!!

I attended a wedding here in February and the hotel was beautiful - it's gorgeously decorated and in a truly impressive spot with views of Table Mountain the background.

The menus were great - the cocktails were delicious and the food at the wedding was really well presented and very good! I highly recommend the rose mojito...

The bedrooms are large and well decorated - very modern with really nice and large bathrooms. I'm not sure that all rooms have this view, but some certainly have gorgeous views over Table Mountain and I'd definitely recommend asking for this! We also got a sneak peak at the honeymoon suite (where the bride and groom stayed) and it was beyond impressive!

The pool area is gorgeous - it's a huge free-form pool which you could easily spend an entire day relaxing in/around.

It's a gorgeous hotel in a great area, walking distance to lots of greats restaurants and bars at the waterfront.

What a fantastic hotel, and as 5 star prices go, what excellent value for money.

It was our first trip to South Africa and we didn't really know what to expect. We'd chosen Cape Town as there was plenty to do and also because of it's relative safety. We'd been unsure which of a few hotels to pick but without doubt we made the right choice.

The hotel is at the V&A Waterfront and is a 5 minute walk from the restaurants and shops. It means a walk along the road that leads into the V&A but this is a very safe walk in what is a controlled area and it is as central as pretty much any hotel if you are going to be spending a bit of time at the waterfront.

The staff at the hotel were all excellent. Service around the pool could have been a bit better, but I think that is probably being overly picky.

We had a standard room but it was very large and the views over Table Mountain were simply stunning. These rooms are in the main building which is only a couple of minutes walk from the pool and spa.

Breakfast at Reubans was top notch and again, the service in there was everything you would want it to be. We also had a meal at Nobu one night. The food in there was also superb and although expensive by SA standards, it is probably the cheapest Nobu you could visit. I'd highly recommend it.

Getting around is easy enough either by taxi or using the open top bus which departs from right outside the hotel.

If you are going to Cape Town, either as a holiday or on business, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: All standard rooms have wonderful views overlooking Table Mountain

Arrived on 11 February after an overnight flight from Heathrow, from the time we arrived by car to the time we left 2 days later we had excellent service from all members of staff involved. Our first floor corner room was very spacious, loved the shower. Thank you for making my birthday special and for a great stay.
