From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful and courteous. We arrived early and they made every effort to get our rooms ready so that we could gain access as soon as possible. The rooms were nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant our 1st night and the food was very good, as was the breakfast. We were very happy with our stay.

I had the best time. A huge S/o to these amazing staff, from Manfred, the resturant staff like Nadia and Solomon. We loved that Davey and David who helped with our bags too. What a time it was. The Breakfast was also the best I’ve had in Cape Town and the views too.

Beautiful views from the third floor. The restaurant makes great, value for money meals. I enjoyed my stay.

I really enjoyed my stay here - I loved being able to walk to waterfront attractions. The room was more spacious than most others I've had in the CBD and was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I loved walking along the canal during the day, so serene.
