We stayed here one night on arrival in South Africa and on our last night before leaving. Hotel was fresh and clean with a small top floor swimming pool in a suntrap. Room was huge and had all we needed. Porters were very efficient at all times. Will stay again one day.

i spent 3 nights at this establishment
while the check in staff were efficient same cannot be said for the rest of the staff
it appears that the staff make you feel like they are doing you a favour when a request is made
at best the room i had can be considered average
it was tiny and despite a request for a room higher up and the fact that the hotel was not entirely full this request was not fulfilled.
what did guile me about the hotel was the parking arrangement wherein you have to leave your keys with an attendant and that then meant that i was forced to empty my car each evening and leaving the keys at the parking office
the night staff are not exactly very polite and perhaps need schooling in social skills
as for the hotel it is on the main road into cape town and that means constant traffic
the lifts are scary and in my opinion have not been maintained
room maintenance is lacking
i stayed here after having read a few reviews and my experiences were very different from the previous reviewers
i will not stay here again

Room Tip: if possible avoid the 6th floor

This is our third return visit to this hotel. We were a large family group of 7 plus one infant. We had four rooms two on executive floor and two on the plush ninth beside the pool. Our room was fab inside was like a New York loft with views of table mountain . The breakfast in the hotel is really good and only a very short taxi ride to the waterfront. Will definately be back rooms are lovely food is fab staff are great

Great location, central to everything in Cape Town. Feels safe and secure. Rooms are quite incredible, spacious, modern with everything you need. Comfy beds help provide a relaxed sleep.
Dinner at Butchers Grill was very good, steaks were top quality. Should possibly have a couple menu options for kids.
We arrived for breakfast at about 09h55, they stop serving at 10am. They clearly do not replenish items during last half hour of breakfast as there was pretty much zero hot food available. We asked for omelette at 10h07, but was informed kitchen was closed. My kids didn't get to eat as they only made it to breakfast venue at 10h10. Guess they mostly cater for corporate market, but would have thought they would be a bit lenient during December school holidays. Left a bit of a sour taste after such a great stay.
Will definitely stay again, probably on room only basis.

We stayed one night at a special rate which this hotel offers from time to time. Really enjoyed our visit. Professional and friendly staff; central location close to all amenities. Essential to use the paid parking on site (R60 per day) since the surrounding area is busy with traffic and cars parked on the street.

Some of the staff were friendly, others were not.
Was really ridiculous the staff barging into the room 8am everyday to check the minibar, not caring so much about the privacy of guests.
There was no free wifi available, not even a limited quota.
The food from the the butchers grill was good.
I will stay here again and hope that the staff in charge of checking the minibar behave better.
Lance at the reception helped fast track out checkin process. Great guy
