Had a fantastic holiday at the President Hotel over December. The restaurant and pool side service need attention there are not enough waiters and the kitchen service is very slow. That being said we will be back for sure

This is a well located hotel for all that's going on in the Cape Town area minutes away from the Sea Front promenade in Bantry Bay and from a Main Street with lots of shops and good to excellent restaurants.

I think...
