          The staff was very friendly, the location was outstanding, and the breakfast and room service food is excellent!

          The price of the room was too high for the quality provided.

          Friendly staff. Good food. Convenient location for business.

          Airport shuttle service very over-priced. Room rates too high for the standard of hotel but this is a problem with most South African hotels.

          I have stayed at the hotel for many years, and have organised functions there. The staff are always very helpful and pleasant and the accommodation is good quality for a 4 star hotel. I was disappointed in the recent past with the breakfast but I notice that things have now improved there and it's really very good. It's a lovely hotel, very appealing visually and it's extremely well located.

          I did mention that I was not impressed with the breakfast in the recent past, but this seems to have been rectified.

          Staff very friendly.

          Location poor, bottom end of Cape Town. View of highway and docks. Room smelt of smoke. White towels had stains. Bed lifted at bottom.

          Very friendly staff

          Very loud. Traffic starts at 5:30 a.m. in the morning and the hotel is in the middle of 3 main roads.

          location

          The run at breakfest hours and the slow attention to get a tea or coffee.

          10.0

          The service was unbelievable. It was amazing. They have a shuttle service from the hotel to the V&A waterfront which is really convenient. The location of this hotel is great. We really enjoyed our stay here.

          A luxury hotel like this should have free wifi in certain areas at least.

        • Older travelers

          Room very comfortable with good view

          Food choice very poor Charging for wi-fi

          the staff was outstanding especially Margaret.

          would like to be able to purchase items for meals instead of full buffet- which was well worth cost but lots of food.
