What is the most outstanding feature is the staff.

The standard rooms are small, but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is outstanding. The pool area is nice and has a...

this is more of a "pre-review" as I'm only due to arrive tomorrow, but I've been thoroughly frustrated by the booking process. To be fair, it's entirely unclear to me if it's the hotel's fault or booking.com's, but in any event they need to sort out the arrangements between them. I've booked thru booking.com several times with good results, and...

Stayed there 1 month ago, I like where this hotel is located, minutes to the beach, which I could see the beautiful sunset in the evening. Basically I could walk alone in the area in the afternoon as well as evening without any disturbance. Pretty safe. It is also near to many restaurants, many choices of international cuisines. Waterfront is...

This hotel is 1 block from the ocean and less then 10 minutes from the water front area of Cape Town. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was top notch. I highly recommend this hotel.

Tiny tiny rooms (smaller than Paris or NYC), small beds, bathroom in the main area (not separate) - location was fine- good coffee up the street at Bootlegger cafe. Staff were poor and customer service was questionable. Toilet paper was never refilled after every room serving - annoying. Biggest gripe and warning for others; they have a parking garage underground....
