Hotel is located close to Table Mountain and in a quiet area. Rooms were well maintained and service from all staff was excellent. Breakfast was good and bar meals very enjoyable. Would recommend hotel.

We had a lovely suite overlooking the city with a view up Table Mountain, most comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful particularly a young lady named Des who organised a small cocktail function for us and friends on the night of my wife's birthday. The situation of the hotel is great and easy for the MiCity bus route... More

Hotel located in a very good position. Rooms are clean and nice and the staff is great. We had two dinners at the hotel restaurant and the food was very good. The hotel has a practical garage if you drive a car.

Since the arrival at Cape Milner until we left the building, everything was 100%. We were welcomed in the most friendly manner. Unfortunately we cannot remember the names, but whoever was on duty that day, should know who they are.
