4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great location, very accessible to waterfront area with good restaurants and entertainment. Easy to park the car in secure area. We had a family room with two connected bedrooms which were a little small but functional. Staff at front desk were professional but not friendly which surprised me.

2/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Upon arrival the altitude of the staff was not the best given our room was double booked and we were allocated a lesser room, the chap looked like he could care less. There was no offer of compensation but I managed to squeeze a bottle of wine out of him begrudgingly . He said the room was of the same standard as the one we had booked but it certainly was not !

    Lovely Hotel - A great place to stay

    Great hotel which has some lovely quirky original features. We had a spacious room with a great bathroom and speedy reliable WiFi. It has fabulous views and is situated close to the V&A Waterfront Area with all it’s shops, restaurants and bars and has easy access to the various visitor attractions that Cape Town has to offer. Would definitely visit again.
