Really nice place. Kids had a ball. I would broaden the menu for lunch but otherwise all good. Cocktails could do with more alcohol in them - very very weak and for the price you pay one deserves to get the full effect.

What a disappointing birthday weekend spent at this hotel! From find soiled underwear in the cupboard of our hotel room to unchanged sheets, dirty floors, empty shower cap boxes and unfriendly staff!!

From checkin to checkout we were impressed with the service, the standard sea facing room we booked had a separate lounge and bedroom, facilities were all in excellent condition, breakfast was excellent. My only concern was that the windows on the top floor (and I presume any floor) are not limited, so it would be possible for a child to...

Awesome place to stay in Capetown, world class breathtaking service. The sea is few minutes away from the hotel, you can jog along the ocean. Shops are not far from the Hotel and places around the hotel are awesome.
