Beautiful view of Table Mountain
For a week-long stay in Cape Town, we reserved a large room facing Table Mountain and Lion's Head, and the view was spectacular. As we always do, we put in a special request for a high floor, and unlike most hotels that either don't receive special requests or disregard them, 15 on Orange gave us the highest floor for the room we reserved. The room was quiet, spacious and comfortable. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful - housekeepers, desk clerks, breakfast buffet staff, bartender, concierges, porters. The housekeepers even replaced the king-sized mattress with two twins for us. Breakfast was excellent, including individually prepared omelets and lots of high quality hot and cold options. The pool area was nice. The hotel is well located, within walking distance of the Castle. Bo-Kaap, and the city center, and a short cab ride to the waterfront, the Table Mountain cable car, and other attractions. The concierge booked very nice and inexpensive excursions for us to the wine country and the Cape Peninsula. There were two small drawbacks. First, there were some relatively minor lapses in service - some days we didn't get toiletries replaced, for instance, and some days we didn't get bottled water as promised. Second, the room had some odd quirks - there were two TVs, but only one remote that operated both, and there were no bedside outlets or charging stations. And guests should be warned of daily power outages during summer season.
