We spent four nights here in February as a family of five on a whirlwind trip to Cape Town and it was a great hotel for location, food, comfort and assistance.
Due to the hectic schedule we had during our stay here we didn't make the most of all the services that the R.B has to offer but we can certainly agree that the Business rooms overlooking the Ocean are fantastic and sitting out in the early mornings watching the Dolphins and seals in the sea was amazing. The breakfasts were probably one of the best for choice and quality we have experienced, the bar meals and snacks and room service meals were of good quality and the bar and cocktails not ridiculously overpriced, especially for the location and view while drinking your Mojito.
Our children enjoyed the infinity pool, although not the biggest pool it was never very busy so this wasn't an issue.
The business rooms were very large with good facilities although have to agree slightly lacking in storage space especially some drawers. The rooms were always immaculately cleaned and turned down in the evening and the beds very comfy for a great nights sleep.
The shuttle bus was great for getting to and from the V & A even though its only about a 10-15 minute walk.
The front of house staff were always very helpful and had some great advice on trips and directions for a visitor to Cape Town. Shame we couldn't have a late check out due to a late flight home but the use of the Spa facilities for showering etc was ok.
This is a large hotel and sometimes you do feel more like a room number rather than a named guest although I understand that this is difficult to manage due to the turnover of guests staying here for Business and Holidays.
We will definitely be returning to Cape Town in the future and would be hard pushed to stay anywhere other than the Radisson Blu Waterfront.
