This hotel basically is very shabby and the rooms are of a very poor quality. The staff walk round eating and appear very unprofessional. We were given one room which we stayed in one night but the shower was unusable and I asked 4 times for a hair dryer but repeatedly told there was none. The decoration of this room...

Had the pleasure of staying at the Lady Hamilton for 10 nights. Located in perfect walking distance to downtown, but a bit far to the waterfront. Shops, restaurants and bars in the near area. The hotel is not the newest, but the staff, chef, maids, the guard out, the receptionist, all are very nice, they have a lot of humor,...

I have stayed in this hotel like 11 times in the past few years. Despite this they still couldn't honour my request. I just did not want a room on the ground floor. They said they were full. Which is totally not true. As they had walk in customers that day who they gave rooms upstairs to. Hotel is amazing...

Not luxury, but sufficient for all our needs in Cape Town, diligent cleaning personnel, initially not so friendly staff but then they went out of their way to find out where our bags were and also were very helpful when one member of our group was robbed on the way from the car to the hotel (beware!). We had a...

Strongest points for them would be the strong sense of family feel/reception you get from the staff and of course great breakfast! Staff is super friendly, the chubby bubbly guy at front desk Mr Yanse (i think that was his name) was such a gem! great guy he was, made checking in & out such a breeze. Very comfortable beds....

I don't like writing bad reviews of places, but this one is unavoidable. This hotel is over-priced, and very dated. The lobby is in desperate need of a revamp as are most of the public areas in the hotel. The hallways are dark and the room doors still use old-style locks. There is no mini-bar in the rooms; no tea/coffee...

This hotel leans toward a fiftyish era with a modern day african / western style. It is nestled between the sea and the mountain in a quiet suburb 10 minute walk to the city bowl. Thus it gives the impression of holiday but yet it is close to all the main conference and government buildings, company gardens, etc. If you...

We had 2 rooms in this rather big hotel. you do not see it from the outside but it has a lot of rooms. Rooms are clean and spacious, bathrooms are complete and clean but a little bit old. The breakfast buffet is quite complete and also for dinner it is ok. Nothing extraordinary but a large choice of vegetables,...

Basic but nice city hotel. Rooms are sufficient. Ours had a splendid view on the Table Mountain morning glory. The breakfast is the traditional tourist class style breakfast with fresh made omelettes cereals etc. The hotel has a secured parking lot in the basement. There is however room for improvement. Our experience during our stay however was that the staff...
