        The honesty of the staff: left my watch in the room and we got it back from the cleaning staff. The hotel staff are truly great.

        excellent location and room was spacious with all the apartment like facilities.

        the hotel has to have its own transport facility.

      • Group of friends

        Used to small and cramped hotel rooms I really enjoyed my 1 bedroom 1 living room apartment -with open kitchen-...the condition of the furniture was really good and it was very clean. The breakfast was nice also and the dining room of the hotel was never crowded, only 2-3 tables full at all times as the hotel had a limited number of rooms. The best stay I ever did in a hotel!!

        Spacious apartment-style living space. All the equipment and facilities for self-catering with ease. Excellent room service. Great breakfast served. Friendly and helpful staff.

        10.0

        Excellent friendly staff,always willing to help. Very prompt service. Large comfortable rooms with fully equipped kitchen.Great central location for all Cape Town's attractions.

        Slightly limited in room tv options...could be improved / expanded.

        The location was ideal for visiting the V&A Waterfront, the hotel staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. the room was very good and the breakfast excellent. Would I stay here again? - definitely.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        Perfect apartment for a family with 2 young kids, all kitchen supplies available, washing machine etc. Good location 10 min walk to Waterfront and shopping area. Excellent breakfast buffet

        The only more negative point: the bedroom is small and could only fit one baby cot; our other child slept on the sofa which did not fit in the bedroom so the en suite doors to the living area always was open. So we as parents did not have the privacy when the kids were asleep

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        This has to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in on my travels. The staff were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and they ensured our stay with them was a memorable one. The apartment rooms were large and airy and extremely well equipped. Just one word of caution - if you visit Table Mountain and decide to walk down make sure you are wearing strong walking boots!!

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        Rooms are beautiful

        Serice wasn great. Got there, then someone said I didnt book in. They apologised by giving us wine, which we dont drink. Then everytime we place an order for food, they had to phone back to check whether for example it should be well done or medium. Surely this should be asked during 1st call. The stupid things like not enough sugar, no horlicks when ordered etc etc. What was also dissappointign is that I asked for a razor to be sent up.... And had to phone again to remind them, as 2 hours laters we still didnt receive it

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        we like walking and found the hotel very convenient for V&A Wharf which we enjoyed very much and the city

        The dining room was great for breakfast but had no atmosphere for supper . Did not like the outside shutters as they were being used by nesting pigeons and the window sills were covered in droppings

      • Single
        9.6

        The room was very comfortable and well kept. The staff were outstanding: professional, very helpful, kind, and welcoming. I would come back just because of the staff. The breakfast was also wonderful.

        I was very frustrated with only getting 50MB of internet/day without paying more. I was unable to keep up with my business responsiblities because I kept running out of internet every day. I would have to leave the hotel and find some other place to complete my work.

      • Single
        9.2

        The welcome. The friendliness of the staff. Their prompt attention to anything needed. The location right between the town and the waterfront was excellent - and yet still reasonably quiet. Having a balcony meant you could sit out in the sunshine. The fresh coffee provided each day in my kitchen! Having a small apartment in a hotel provided the best of both worlds.

        The sofa & chair in my room where a bit hard to sit on for long - but then I wasn't in for long periods so it wasn't a problem for me. Would have been useful to have a microwave oven as well.
