Great location, close to restaurants and shopping

Was a nice stay at the hotel, very impressed with the location and the spacious room. Reception and drivers of the hotel are great, but to make an improvement and stand out from other hotels, I would organise staff in/and the restaurant a bit different. Its very slow, and often we weren't sure if staff in restaurant understood us properly. But after our SA experience we noticed that this slow pace in restaurants is almost the same everywhere. So it could be that we are just spoilt at home in Australia ;)

Easy to locate if self driving

For the price I would have expected more. Eg no wi fi ( we asked around breakfast time that there was no connection, after questioning our devices did report back that it would be unavailable for the morning.) Little things like no fresh milk for tea coffee and the stocks weren't even replaced with daily room service, not even uhl for a cup of tea.

Top Stay

Here for a conference. Comfortable walk to Convention Centre but a bit hot in suit.. Taxi five mins .. If that and cheap. Rooms very nice, good WiFi good TV clean and spacious, top view for breakfast in the mornings and a pleasure to watch the seals in the harbor) Reiterate your cooked breakfast requirements not always correct but not an issue Highly recommend as perfect for dining and shops

Right in the centre of the Waterfront, Cape Town.

Wonderful position and comfortable hotel with the best breakfast I have seen across the world. Includes champagne and oysters but let down by average service in breakfast dining room.
