Stunning hotel room. Stayed in 710 and loved every minute of it. The room size and design is brilliant it's on what they call the island. The view from the room is so good you never want to leave the room. The bars are excellent with a good vibe to them. Staff was friendly and

I loved this hotel! Great location, very comfortable rooms and attentive staff. Would stay here again. Had a great view of Table Mountain. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby, so I was able to walk around on my own in the neighborhood and feel safe.

Exceptional service, rooms are immaculate (we had the mountain facing view), the breakfasts are incredible and we enjoyed the proximity to the waterfront. I'm usually one to stay on the beach side when visiting CT, but this was well worth the change.

Is there an area for smoking?
You can’t smoke by the swimming pool. I smoked on the balcony of our room. You can smoke on the lower terrace by the water -infront of Isola bar.

I am not sure about the hotels temperature but the Marina around the hotel is where the serious swimmers swim on Friday mornings - you could meet some extraordinary swimming peeps however regarding water temperature if you are looking for warm water to swim in the news is likely to be all bad......Cape Town swimmers pride themselves for swimming in cold water.....!!

No. Just finished a stay here, there are stickers in the bathroom advising you to time your showers to save water but there are no restrictions.

Yes, breakfast was included in the rate. There is an extensive buffet, I especially loved the oysters and champagne to start the experience. There is also a separate menu which lists items such as Eggs Benedict, which was divine. Overall, a 5 star breakfast in keeping with the whole experience. The staff are attentive and helpful, plates are cleared quickly and beverages topped up as required. You will not be disappointed.

"Any with a view of Table Mountain"
"Suite 416....But very expensive!!!"
"Cost-wise, cocktails are a more feasible option than staying the night, but go for it if you've had a recent result."
