Stayed here for 8 nights over Christmas 2008 with my father in law in an adjoining room. Good base for Camps Bay (outside the door), the beach (50 meters across the road) and Cape Town (a short taxi or bus ride away). Good reasonably large rooms withcomfortable chairs TV etc. You could suffer some traffic noise being so close to the road if your room is right at the front.
Couple of major issues. The hotel lost most of our (same day cleaning) laundry, they delivered some of it late at night after 10.30, the evening porter didn't get a response from my father in law next door as he was asleep, so he unlocked the door and walked straight in. The next morning when we expressed our concerns, the receptionist thought the whole episode rather funny, but we pressed him and eventually met with one of the management team who couldn't have been more helpful and apologetic and resolved the problem and issues to our staisfaction. But the episode did put a cloud over our stay especially our resevations over security.
On the whole a reasonable place to stay in Camps Bay
