"good variety of rooms. The front can be noisy on the weekends."
"Constantia room is spacious with a nice bathroom"
"I guess the rooms towards the busy street Lower Main are more noisy, but we never had any problems falling asleep/waking up by noise."
"Get a room upstairs! The heat is much less up there. Also, a balcony room is WORTH it."
"My favourite rooms are Constantia as it quite spacious with a king size bed and Camps Bay with the beachy theme."
