Very comfortable home away from home
This was a good choice after being stranded in Cape town because of problems with the flight.

Ok hotel
We visited the hotel for the Cape Town Jazz festival, the hotel was a walkable distance to the Cape town convention centre which was great. The hotel its self is old and could do with referring in the bathroom and toilet especially, the tops are old and have cracks, our toilet had nasty stains and even had a note stuck on it to tell us the hotel was aware of the stains and apologised, this to me said the hotel didnt even want us to bother them telling them about it, and i couldnt help but wonder if there was intentions of fixing it? The receprtionist did not give us details of breakfast times, where it was, and when check out was as per every hotels procedure, we only realised this the following day since we arrived late at night and just wanted to get to our room.
