4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Location was good for our purpose to stay. Slightly old fashioned yet quaintly traditional.
Stayed 1 night in Dec 2019

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Convenient location for Cape Town attractions
Extremely welcoming staff who can't do enough for you. Our room, room 8, was very big, as was the en suite bathroom, but the bathroom in particular could have done with a bit of attention; it also overlooks the road which we would ask to avoid if visiting again. Overall, the excellent staff and location way outweighed the relatively minor concerns we had with the room, and we would stay again for sure.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Nice hotel on outskirts of Cape Town
Wifi bad, but we were put on the Hotel's network, so huge improvement. Lack of air conditioning a disappointment, the fans helped. Loose taps were fixed and missing hook behind bathroom door fixed. Otherwise the room was very comfortable.

3/5 Okay

Nice garden and pool. Interiour has seen better days. Decor from 80ies. Would really need some TLC and a good decorator as it is a fantastic building with huge potential. Great staff!

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Quite fancy but strange service & expensive
We did arrive relatively late a Sunday night and the poor gentleman in the reception had to do a lot of things for a lot of guests (checking in, showing the grounds, carrying luggage, taking dinner orders and room service orders etc). Meanwhile the owners were around, did not help and overall gave off a strange feeling, almost making us feel uncomfortable. The place is nice but I feel it is too expensive in comparison to many similar and more charming places.
