Exquisite hotel with excellent staff

Posted Nov 3, 2017
Pros: The serene and relaxing environment, as well as the excellent staff. The large rooms, and very comfortable beds.
Cons: N/A
I stayed in this hotel as it is very close to UCT campus, where I had meetings, but it would be equally suitable (and ideal perhaps) for a couple visiting Cape Town. Taxis/Ubers are cheap to get into downtown Cape Town. It is in a safe and friendly part of the city, and also close to the botanical gardens. It would be a terrific staging post for people wanting to travel in the surrounding area (it is also closer to the airport than downtown Cape Town).

Great food tired facilities

Posted Mar 14, 2017
The room was comfortable except for the poor condition of the bathroom. Needs some basic maintainance to bring it back to a four star rating. Pool was disappointing and dirty. Hot tub not functional. The breakfast was excellent. Location very convenient.

Excellent B&B

Stayed a night due to its closeness to the University of Cape Town. Location is also very nice for vacation. Highly recommended.

Great hotel slightly off the beaten track

Posted Jan 11, 2017
Pros: Quiet location, large rooms, luxurious furnishings
Cons: Shower drainage was a little slow
Location: Slightly off the beaten track but convenient for UCT and the Southern suburbs
The Banksia is located away from the main tourist areas, but is very convenient for visits to UCT or to Kirstenbosch gardens, and the waterfront and other City attractions are not that far away. The hotel rooms are large and well appointed, with high ceilings. Breakfasts are very good with fresh baked goods and ample choice. The staff are very helpful.
