Very welcoming and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Delicious breakfast - continental, fried or cereal. Excellent restaurant. Very useful free shuttle to the Waterfront. Good location next to Long Street and the museums, opposite the lovely Company Gardens. We had a walk there most mornings.

I stayed at Cape Town Hollow during a recent visit while on business. Three of my colleagues tagged along, and none of us got a room with a view ... so do not go in expecting the room from the pictures. The room was spacious and nice enough. The swimming pool was out of service and looked like a pond,...

Our stay at Cape Town Hollow was very pleasant. Our room was spacious and we had a great view of Table Mountain. The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast didn't have much variety but it was nice enough.

Only stayed here for one night, but I had just left the very basic by comparison Strand Town Hotel so this was perfect. Everything is done to a high standard: lobby, lifts, carpets, doors etc You notice it everywhere. My room was on the front facing the Mountain so a great view - the only downside was the rush hour...

We had an excellent stay in this hotel. The bed and room was comfortable, clean and airy. The view may be good or uninteresting depending on the floor you have and which way your room faces. However at the end of the day for me we were exploring Cape Town and it's environs so we were hardly in the room....

This is a 'boutique' hotel with lots of their rooms overlooking Table Mountain which is glorious to open the curtains to in the morning. The staff on reception both day and night were a joy, extremely friendly and helpful they happily went out of their way to make sure we had all we needed. Very comfortable bed, perfectly good bathroom,...

Nice small boutique hotel with very friendly staff and well appointed rooms. Breakfast was very good with lots of continental bits and a small selection of hots. The only negative is the bathroom which was a bit shabby and not in keeping with the rest of the hotel. A word on parking, the hotel staff direct you to a multi...

We spent our first two nights in Cape Town at this hotel. The staff were very helpful about our mixed up suitcase at the airport and later in our stay were helpful in every way. Our room was good and clean, with very comfortable beds.

Check in was friendly if a little confusing. Restaurant staff badly needs training. Our waitress did not even introduce herself or wear a nametag. I ordered a glass of Saltare NV MCC. It was FLAT. The waitress wanted to argue. Wine is my business.I think I would know. She went to the bar area and another lady came out, with...
