Reviewed 9 April 2013

The hotel is in the city centre. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There is tea and kettle provided. my only gripe was that they did not refill them, or maybe I should have requested that. The breakfast was also good. Will not mind staying there again. I was able to walk to the Waterfront, about 20 min walk.

Stayed here for 5 nights on a recent trip to Cape Town. The Townhouse is best described as comfortable - no 5 star frills here, but everything you need is provided. Location is very central, right near parliament. Easy walk to Long St and the Gardens. Can walk to V&A Waterfront but it's a fair walk, about 20-30 minutes (or about R60 in a taxi). The immediate area is very quiet in the evenings and on weekends. Not a dangerous location but as with anywhere in Cape Town you should take precautions at all times (e.g. don't flash valuables, don't carry passport around, etc). Witnessed one bag snatching in the City in my time there.

Room had sufficient space for one person. Very comfortable bed, I slept well each night, and very large shower with good water pressure. Television had a good mix of movie and sports channels including Premier League live. Breakfast was also decent, really nice omelettes.

Few minor complaints - the room cleaning service could have been more thorough - one day they didn't empty my rubbish bin, sometimes they only left one towel instead of two. Service in the restaurant also hit and miss - usually my toast at breakfast was cold by the time it arrived.

Overall though an enjoyable stay and would stay here again.

I stayed here for 1 night on a Business trip.
The Hotel is located in central Cape Town. A good 30 min walk to the Waterfront.
The Room was spacious and had a room safe, kettle with tea and coffee provided.
Minimal bathroom amenities. Small TV with English films.
The bed was extremely comfortable and the duvet very fluffy!
24 hour room service and the food was very good. Breakfast was plentiful and plenty of choice.
I enjoyed the Jungle oats!
The staff were very friendly and were very helpful with any problems.
Would stay here again.
If you want a Hair cut then I would recommend "Hair by Michelle" in Loop Street. A short 10 min walk from the Hotel. Closed on Mondays.

Room Tip: You can either have a room with a mountain view, but you get alot of wind noise as Cape Town is very...

Does not look too enticing from outside but once through the doors it is a different matter. Not an ultramodern hotel but rather a well maintained hotel with a more genteel feel. The rooms were nicely sized, comfortable bed and kept spotless by the staff. The rooms were well soundproofed so you had no extraneous noise from other rooms. The restaurant was pleasant and the food well above average. As others have noted, the breakfast really sets you up for the day.
The hotel is quite well placed in a slightly quieter part of town next to the parliament buildings but only a 10 minute stroll into the very town centre. It is also a 10 minute walk to the Cape Malay area for some of the best food in the country.
Car parking was straightforward in a multi-story car park next door to the hotel with access from level ‘M’ to the 7th floor of the hotel. Daily costs were very reasonable.
I have read some adverse comments about the staff but in my experience they were all excellent. Always a smile a few friendly words and always very helpful with advise where to visit and give directions etc.
My only gripe was that there were only two elevators and boy were they slow. Modern and good size they were, but waiting for lifts took forever. The hotel was not heavily booked so I would think it could be a bit of a problem in the holiday season.
As a base to visit Cape Town, I cannot recommend the hotel and staff highly enough.

The Townhouse is a long established hotel that can be best described as a business/conference style hotel with accomodation that matches this class. It is very central and the service is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was fantastic, a big buffet selection. There is a parking garage linked to the hotel, rooms are decorated in a modern style, but there is no gym, so if that's important to you, then you'll need to walk 10mins to the closest gym. We loved staying here. Ask for a mountain view if possible.

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel and its was great. Breakfast was lovely. Fresh fruits and pastries and their eggs benedict is AMAZING!!!
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The rooms are small yet comfortable (the best beds i have ever slept on), perfect for a few nights stay. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a small but beautiful view of the top of the mountain.
The hotel is situated in the perfect spot, being in easy walking distance from a lot of attractions, shops and even the V & A waterfront.
I managed to walk down to green point and found the walk rather relaxing.
The only down side to this hotel, that I can think of, is the parking. Feels like a never ending spiral up / down about 7 parking floors.
Other than that, it's great!

The Townhouse is ideally placed in the city centre and has well set out rooms and a nice intimate restaurant area. The conference area is nice and spacious and it is easy to see why it is in constant use by both small as well as medium sized conferences. The food served is tasty and the staff are both friendly and helpful. All in all a well run hotel which definately appeals to businessmen and corporates

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the mountain for a wondeful wake up in the morning
