Stayed at a penthouse apartment during my recent visit to Cape Town with some foreign guests. We were all extremely happy with the accommodation and the facilities. Location was central too. We stayed for four night and found it to be great value for money.

Rooms are great. Location is not great for attractions and amenities. Hotel really slows down over weekends as it is not centrally located. Limited food choice, especially over weekends, so you really need to get out. Better to have own transport for this.
