4/5 Good

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.

Pros: Staff

Cons: Decor in bathroom in room 8!

Location: Great location. Close to so many things ... V&A waterfront, table mountain, kirstenbosch botanical gardens, wine region, cape point. Very safe too.

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.

the fairy godmothet

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!

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.
