Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Access to the members club events and spaces is very worthwhile and nearby. The breakfast at Hemelhuijs is probably one of the best in Cape Town. Useful to have the coworking facilities thrown in.

No breakfast
The hotel did not indicate or share where we were to receive breakfast. Thus we had no breakfast on departure. They have offered a complimentary breakfast on our next stay. Not sure if there will be next time.
