This hotel's location is the best thing going for it. It sits on the sea around half a kilometer from the Capetown wharf, which has a number of high-end restaurants and boutiques and is almost a city on its own. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the wharf on the hour until late at night. The hotel's terrace is quite stunning, with views of the sea and the dolphins that occasionally play in the surf. The hotel's breakfast is excellent, and eating it on the terrace is a pleasure. These are the good things. But there are also less attractive features. The rooms, at least most of them, need refurbishing and have a rundown look. While the hotel's staff is generally very friendly, the staff at the desk are sometimes less than efficient. We asked them to reserve us at a restaurant on the wharf, and they never called us back. We also asked them to book a tour of the townships for us, but found the following morning that the staffer named for the trip didn't do township tours. Still, we would stay there again, if only because of its excellent location.
