The location of the hotel is great as it is a 5 min walk to the coast. The establishment it self was a bit disappointing. The rooms were small, especially the washroom as you had to move inside the shower to close the door. The room is also a bit worn out. The sheet for one of our night was...

We arrived on 28 December at 14.30 to check in, but only to be advised that our room was not available. The front advised our room "will be ready shortly". An hour later we were informed our room is available after I requested whether ready yet. I prepaid for breakfast and parking prior to our arrival and was advised it...

Nice, clean hotel located 2 blocks from the Sea Point Promenade and a few blocks from restaurants. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. 10 minute taxi ride to V&A Waterfront or a 30-40 minute walk. Great breakfast. Would definitely return.

We stayed in this hotel with my wife four days in last October. Amazing crew, will do everything to make you happy. Hotel over all very clean, fantastic location.

Rooms were very small, hotel is understaffed, one outlet that accepted a adapter, I don't know how marriot can put their name on this hotel... the good part is that it offers parking, staff were knowledgeable. The bar downstairs closes at 11 pm so that's a bummer.
