    Comfortable and clean. We had to be moved as initially we were put in a twin room. Fortunately, the hotel was able to accommodate us in a nice double room.

    We requested and were given a designated non smoking room, however the room reeked of smoke and although deodoriser had been sprayed the smell of smoke remained and was most unpleasant for our entire stay. Your computer system was down when we were booking out and a complete state of chaos reigned at the reception desk.

    I would like to highlight the quality of the food...excellent!

    I was missing a heated pool, would have given much much more value to the facilities.

    The rooms were not well kept even dirty, no toilet rolls, and even though we stayed 3 nights the carpet was not vacuum once.

    Value for money as we had a flash deal at 50% discount.

    It is an old hotel and might need a revamp in the near future

  • Family with children

    The location. The beautiful pool and the seaview. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. The hotel reception staff kind.

    The hotel rooms need to be seriously upgraded!!! The house keeping staff asking at 08:15 when we are planning to book out of the hotel.

  • Group of friends

  • Couple

    Room was very spacious, clean and neat. Facilities were excellent. Breakfast were great.

    Nothing, really. If I had to mention something, it is looking a bit old and worn.

  • Older travelers

    being in a smoking room

  • Single
    5.8

    Fabulous postion with great sea views and good transport links to central Cape Town.

    Very slow and inneffective service in restaurant - waited one and a half hours for a main course on Friday night! Rooms rather tired and furnishings in rooms and corridors in need of updating.
