location was good for various day trips. Some staff were obviously not happy in their job, a smile would have nice when serving.

Great location but hotel not up to standard

Perfect location, 10min to VA waterfront full of restaurants, 10min or less to Cape Town beach and into town. However I would not return to this hotel. Our bed only had a top sheet covering it, so did not have any elastic which meant it kept moving everytime we moved. Our doona cover had a massive split in it. Breakfast spread was nice, however orderinha coffee in the morning meant a 15-20min wait until it got to the table. Seems to take a long time to do anything and while the staff are all very lovely, it’s just a slow process whether it be ordering a coffee, cocktail, cutlery at breakfast. On the morning of our checkout we were woken up at 8.30am by a staff member walking into our room and then apologizing and shutting the door. Why on earth that would have happened I have no idea since checkout is not until 11am. Overall an average feeling toward my stay. For the money it cost for each room I didn’t think it was worth it.
