1 night stay. Everything went well from BEFORE I booked in. Immediate advice when I asked for the name of "that nice italian place near the company gardens". Helped at very short notice for a large booking at the in-house Planet Restaurant. Helped gracefully as the booking numbers went down (some friends you just cannot rely on, no?) from 9 to 4.
INCREDIBLY nice dinner, with Farai, our waiter, also impressing as a sommelier. Food quality and presentation right up there, and I have eaten at most of the top 10 SA restaurants. Service fantastic, and informed. The chefs rock!!
Room superb - large, spotless, understated elegance, all amenities working and high class. Staff excellent throughout - sometimes the cachet of an establisment rubs on off on the people working there in the wrong way, and you get staff looking down at guests, being snotty and generally acting like hipster waiters in a Camps Bay hotspot - none of this here - friendly, polite, relentlessly efficient.
So, most of my superlatives used, and this review just barely made 4 paragraphs. I have nothing much more to say exept this: "thanks to all of you - we really really really enjoyed our stay!"
