If you want to sleep past 8am (on the weekend) or do work in your hotel room, this is not the hotel for you. The rooms were nice, the breakfast was good and service was very good service, but the noise from the construction was very loud.

We booked this hotel because of the reviews and photos online, and we found it largely misleading. It's not the hotel's fault I suppose; that area of Cape Town is really one big building site. The hotel itself is decent. It's clean and comfortable and perfect if you don't intend spending much extra time in your room. The breakfasts are... More

This hotel is in a great spot with easy walking to nice attractions and restaurants. There is currently nearby construction that limits the parking available and mars the view, but not the fault of the hotel. Rooms are comfortable and while not fancy, all amenities are good. I did not sample the food in the hotel because the restaurants nearby... More

Thank you for staying with us. While we are really glad to hear about the many positive aspects of your stay, these were definitely counteracted by your negative food (and cockroach) experience. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please give us another chance to impress so you can more fully enjoy our great location. More

This was a very well run hotel with very attentive staff. It's also within walking distance of the V & A Waterfront tourist area. The food was also very tasty and well presented. The rooms were fairly spacious and clean. A very pleasant weekend break. I would certainly stay here again.
