The location is good. You could walk to the waterfront in 10 minutes, even though there is a free shuttle bus. Staff at the property are very friendly and professional. Breakfast is very good in a pleasant environment.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Not a good experience. We both got food poisoning at the breakfast buffet. We were given a room with one bed despite booking two, then given a room on the first floor, then given a room that wasn’t fully cleaned. The stopper in the bathroom sink is of such a poor design that it kept closing with the dirty water backing up. The windows are very thin resulting in a lot of noise especially with the building across the street under construction. Pool closed multiple days for a private event. Housekeeping did not restock soaps several days. The hotel has a nice look but that’s about it.

Will stay elsewhere if visiting Cape Town again
Having travelled extensively world wide for both business and pleasure, this is the first hotel I've stayed at that took a deposit in advance ( in addition to the agreed room rate ) just n case you dined in their restaurant or had a drink in the bar !! This then results in higher currency exchange rates. The deposit was returned on check out. The actual hotel was quite nice decoratively and a great location to the Waterfront However we stayed at better B&Bs on this trip and it was the only establishment that didn't provide face flannels in their bathroom. A trivial point but it gives you a feeling of how we felt we were treated during our stay
