Perfect hotel in VF&A area centrally located in between the wharf and other areas. Nearby to loads of restaurants, bars, shops and markets. The hotel is very nice and includes breakfast (eggs cooked to order, meats, cheeses, yogurt, breads, coffee, etc). Also dined at the restaurant for dinner and enjoyed our meal. Internet is good and includes unlimited use. FNB ATM is 1 min away that has 24 hr security. Suggest using Uber for transportation to/from the airport. The transportation areanged by the hotel is cash only and 2x Uber rates. The staff are attentive and nice. We will stay here again on our next visit to Cape Town.

Fantastic property in ideal location - a lot of options around and very close to the motorway network. Lovely staff and excellent customer services. Minor let down, the pool is quite small and it gets very busy.

6/10 Good

It’s what you’d expect from a 3-star hotel. I stayed at the hotel with my husband and booked a standard room with a queen bed. The bed was too small to sleep comfortably, and also they only gave us amenities (towels, water) for 1 person only. We had to switch to a twin bed room to have a little more space and enough amenities for two people. The service was mostly bad. You call room service and asked if they have something, they said they’ll call you back but never did. The staff didn’t seem to know the area well either, there was a big city-wide parade near the hotel (Cape town’s traditional of “second new year”) and we had some questions about the parade times, the staff member did not even know it was happening. The gym was good and breakfast was good as well. Overall, it’s a 3 star hotel with below average service.
