Their breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. Thank you to ladies like Thandiwe and Xholiswa.. However, their dinner options are very limited and not kid friendly. Their desert cakes arenot fresh.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel was ideally located for us to explore Cape Town and a very short walk from the V&A waterfront district. The hotel did offer a shuttle bus service but we wanted to walk and see everything. The breakfast and choice was excellent. The staff were very helpful, courteous and polite. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great Location.
I have stayed here a few times over the years but have not been back for a few years. The hotel is very well located at the bottom of city bowl and close to the waterfront. The rooms are well kitted out and clean. The hotel needs a little attention on upkeep generally but it is very good value. The breakfast was not a good as I remember.
