Our Stay at the AC Hotel by Marriott Cape Town
a stunning hotel well situated in the Cape Town waterfront area. This is a fairly new hotel and staff are very keen to offer excellent service levels especially during the fantastic breakfasts. Perhaps the team responsible for cleaning the bedrooms just needs to focus on the details such as replenishing tea bags , water and ensuring that there is always a second sheet on the bed. The floor of the room was not swept / cleaned every day during our 4 night stay . Other than that a brilliant hotel and well worth a stay .

Excellent Stay at AC Hotel

Our overnight stay
The overall experience was pleasing and comfortable. The reception of the staff and service received during our overnight stay was satisfactory. However, we felt that Harbour view was not what we envisioned. It seemed rather misleading since the view was more of a working dock area with no ocean or view of yachts and boats in site. This was a little disappointing. We tried to change our room to a Mountain View but was informed that the hotel was already fully booked.

Bordering on the Waterfront
Staff were friendly and engaged with our children (3 and 8). The pool area was great, but we did not realize we had to arrange towels at reception. Breakfast was tasty with lots of variety. Access to the Waterfront by foot was a bit messy, but there were boats nearby (operating on the canal).

Over all it’s not bad except the cold face of a female staff at the reception...

Great stay close to the Waterfront
What a lovely hotel to stay at. The breakfast was exceptional! Rooms were spacious and very clean. Service staff were excellent. The only "suggestion" I would have is to re-look at access to the hotel from the Waterfront. A gate is available leading to the waterfront but it was locked and we then had to walk around through the CTICC as both bus and water taxi (very cool!) were done for the evening.

Highly recommend
We stayed in a family room which was large and very comfortable. It was extremely clean, new and well equipped. The breakfast selection was enormous, generous and delicisious - quite a bonus. Great coffee and excellent all round. Check in was quick and efficient. Facilities look great although our stay was short so we didn't make use of anything The position is excellent within close proximity to the V&A waterfront and the Convention Centre. Our only complaint was there were some items "short" - there were 4 of us staying (2 adults and 2 children) yet only 4 towels were provided and inadequate supplies of toiletries. Otherwise it was a good experience and we would return.
