      Individual guest reviews

      • Couple
        7.4

        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.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        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.

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        The location was good .The rooms were comfortable and realtively clean after we complained

        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.

      • Family with children
        3.8

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

      • Single
        7.0

        I applied for procard membership and was upgraded to a very beautiful room with a fantastic view, the buffet breakfast is delicious and has variety to choose from.

        The gym is poor equiped and small.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Very nice and big breakfast buffet. All staff was very friendly and always tried to help.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        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
        6.6

        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
        9.2

        We booked two sea view rooms, the view was wonderful and the new room was very lovely

      • Couple
        9.6

        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
        8.8

        the location of the hotel mid-point between the city and camp bay

        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.
