“A jewel on the Cape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

I was suprised to find a hotel of this quality and a member of the Leading Hotels in the World in the location. Old town setting with very high qauity fittings. Excellent faciities and part of the Victoria and Albert (V&A) waterfront, Easy access to shopping faciliites and water sport as well as water cruises. Many rooms have an excellent view of table moutain and Table bay. Well appointed and good value though pricy.

Room Tip: Rooms are excellent all round but ask for a room with a balcony.

This hotel was in a superb location and our room overlooked Table Mountain - not that we saw much of for the three nights we spent there. The weather was awful - very wet with thunder and lightening, not that stopped us from visiting several sights and we even got to the top of Table Mountain on the last evening we were there. On the day we were leaving the Mountain showed itseld in all its glory. Clear Blue skies. Our bedroom was luxurious snd had a coffee machine, fridge and mini bar. We also had an open plan bathroom! There were loads of beautiful restaurants to eat at. Also the hotel served rather delicious evening bar meals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a delight with a pianist playing - very soothing start to the day.

Room Tip: Try for a room overlooking Table Mountain for a superb view.

I was inlove with our hotel suite for the awesome view of table mountain! Sunrise to sunset I could just sit back & relax at our suite. Love the hotel ambience, cleanliness & service! Breakfast was sumptuous if only I can have a much bigger sack in my tummy I would love to have every food on the buffet table. Service staffs so attentive & friendly. A perfect place to shop because of its access to the shopping mall.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the bay & the table mountain.

We stayed at this hotel as we had a big company event here in Capetown. The hotel is located in the Victoria wharf area which is very safe and a tourist attraction/shopping area. The check in was ok although I had to wait 2 hours as I arrived early. The room was fantastic and I had the view of the table mountain. Wifi was quite good and complimentary. Breakfast is always full but we can sit in the foyer. Overall, highly recommended!

Superbly located in Cape Town, with activities, shopping, eateries and night life all at a walking distance, this luxurious property is a perfect stay in the mother city. Warm staff hospitality, cozy ambiance and excellent breakfast spread marks the beginning of a wonderful day. A view of Table Mountain is fantastic with routine local activities in the foreground. Stayed as Tour Leader of a private group during 3rd week of Aug 2012.

Wow!!!! This hotel is fantastic. The staff are all really helpful, courteous and "service with a smile" and if they can, would always go the extra mile. We stayed on the eighth floor with a view of the sea, the room was a great size and very clean.the hotel itself is in the perfect location for sight seeing, tours, shops etc and right on the doorstep for many different types of restaurants and bars.
Make sure you book the breakfast too I have stayed in many places in the world but never had such a wonderful breakfast buffet, the choice of everything is amazing all fresh and cooked to perfection. As an example they have no less than 7 or 8 fresh juices alone and we counted 16 different fresh fruits!!
