This experience by itself made the evening memorable. After cocktails we sat down to a full five course meal over the next 3 hours. Being an American it was very relaxing not to be rushed through our meal. My party of ten enjoyed the full 3 hours. Expensive "Yes", Worth Every Rand "Yes". Read less

The hotel, including its facilities is outdated and the staff is clearly used to hearing (and ignoring) complaints! It reminded me of a 3 star hotel I stayed at in china.. here as well there is a price tag for everything.

The hotel, including its facilities is outdated and the staff is clearly used to hearing (and ignoring) complaints! It reminded me of a 3 star hotel I stayed at in china.. here as well there is a price tag for everything. Understandable, that the hotel was empty during the COVID19 scare but it shouldn’t take a toll on the few guests staying! Warm water shuts off, bathroom were DISGUSTING.. showed it to housekeeping and they promised me that it will be cleaned only to disappear and not return. The SPA again, was a mediocre experience at best and not at all a reflection from a hotel that calls itself a ‘hotel & spa’. Reception was useless, unfriendly and clearly on target for upselling. Before you decide to judge, please read my other hotel reviews - most have been positive and very appreciative - will never stay here again and I would recommend the same to anyone else visiting Cape Town! Cape Town is a beautiful city with amazing people.. There are many other hotels that do justice to the beauty of the city and it’s people .. please stay there instead! This was undoubtedly the worst hotel during our SA trip! Read less

Don’t take the expensive cake. Bland and expensive. Told the manager who came to see if everythjng was ok and he said “I can tell the kitchen but I know they won’t listen to me”. He didn’t even offer a drink on the house. We left half our cake behind. Just come here for the view and a coffee. Or breakfast. They can’t get the breakfast wrong can… Read more
