Overall, a good place to stay and central to the waterfront area. There appears to be issues with water as showering was not enjoyable due water temperature fluctuations.

Great location but not worth the money

Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Dont believe that the hotel is value for money
Location: Close to the V&A Waterfront
We recently stayed at this hotel which is located adjacent to the V&A Waterfront. The location and staff were the positive experiences. For the price the rooms are dated, and my son and his girlfriend were placed in a room for the disabled with no consultation. Our room faced the mountain, however we also overlooked the parking area and staff entrance, so was very noisy from 4am in the morning. The hotel is also undergoing maintenance, would have preferred to be notified about this at the time of booking.
