Superb staff, location and the best breakfast in Cape Town! The views from the rooms of table mountain are spectacular. The staff are all incredibly friendly and nothing is too much trouble. It is a perfect location to access the waterfront and all Cape Town has to offer.

Stayed here for our first couple of honeymoon nights in Cape Town. It was utterly amazing! We had a room with breathtaking views of the cliffs, a wonderful spa treatment and the breakfast has everything including fresh juices, oysters and a range of freshly baked pastries!! We got a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room on arrival with a range of chocolates which was really special. Close proximity to walk to everything, yet quiet enough that you don't feel like you're too much in the city. Would highly recommend especially for a special stay! Read less

From the moment of arrival to the time of departure, the staff at this hotel go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Although the hotel is not directly on the V&A Waterfront, it is in a very convenient location - just a few minutes walk to the centre of the Waterfront. Our room, on the 4th floor, was definitely one of the most spacious we have stayed in for a long time. Breakfast is mainly a la carte with cold items served as buffet which makes it a very civilised experience. Would certainly recommend for both couples and families. Read less
