Our room had a breathtaking view and was super confortable. Staff were friendly and corteous, specially during breakfast. Made us feel like home. We only wished they had someone at frontdesk during the night and that it wasn't that far from the waterfront ( 20 min - 100 Rands each way). Would still recommend for the price.

Most of the staff is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is just not top notch. I probably would stay here again but I would have...

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and enjoyed much our stay. Charming boutique hotel with a spendid view over the bay. Breakfast was good (compared to SA similar hotel standards). Our room was spacious and clean. The staff very friendly. Would go back if we ever return to Cape Town.
