The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the V&A waterfront. Clean and comfortable with a great buffet breakfast. Pool area and terrace is a great place to relax and have a drink or snack. Staff are attentive and friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. No complaints whatsoever and would recommend.

Great welcome and explanation of facilities, location, tours etc from Petronella on reception desk on our arrival and from that moment on all the staff were great - friendly and helpful. Excellent hotel, clean, good quality rooms, breakfast is outstanding. Ideal location for the lively waterfront, just a short walk away. Parking on site with valet parking service available. Highly recommend this hotel.

We were on a very short visit from UK to watch our team London Irish play the Stormers in a rugby match. We arrived early at the hotel after an overnight flight from UK and were fortunate we could check in straight away. Had a lovely room on top floor with a balcony over looking table mountain and the waterfront. We were booked on a room only basis but were able to purchase breakfast each day in the hotel and this was very good. Everything you could want, fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, hot cooked eggs to order and was a reasonable price too. We were informed each day of the daily load shedding times (power cuts) but everything bar the air con and plug sockets worked still so no real issues caused by this. The hotel is in a great location only a 5 minutes walk to the V & W waterfront and for us a 10 minute walk to the great Cape Town stadium for the rugby. You are spoilt for choice of eateries at the waterfront and so many shops too. We managed to cram a lot into our 5 day strip but still lots more to see and do so an excuse to come back and stay here again.…

I stayed here at the end of 2022 and I would never recommend this hotel. There are problems with security and the people in charge. There was an incident where someone entered the room I was staying in and cut off the zipper of my suitcase and emptied it. I then asked the hotel for compensation, but they said they were investigating for a few days, and after a while I never heard back from them. My trip to Cape Town was ruined by this hotel's lack of good faith. I hope there will be no other victims.

Really nice hotel with good amenities. The location is great, just a five minute walk to the Waterfront! The lifts were really fast and as there were three of them you didn’t need to wait long which is always a plus. There is also a really relaxing outside courtyard with a lovely pool and outside tables where there is always sunshine :) Thank you for looking after us!

Excellent hotel within a very short walking distance to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront attractions, shops and restaurants. Outstanding room with a nice view of Table Top Mountain. Staff was extremely helpful. Private transfer to the airport, arranged through the Commodore, was excellent.

Everything was perfect. The first hotel we stayed in when arriving to Cape Town - the bed was decorated and a Mr/Mrs pillow on the bed as we are recently married. Lovely view of the waterfront and the breakfast was excellent. We used the gym - everything we needed and the location was excellent. No hesitation in recommending
