“Well furnished and great location: A city hotel in Capetown central.”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

I enjoyed my visit at the Townhouse Hotel over the Christmas period.

Things I liked:
1. Central city location (away from the beaches unfortunately), within walking distance of several eateries and the Castle of Good Hope. Close to a local police station. About ten minutes drive from Table Mountain and the Waterfront.

2. Well furnished: large television, free wifi and glass-wall bathrooms.

3. Superb view overlooking Capetown City and Table Mountain

4. Restaurant definitely above par: innovative dishes, well prepared and presented.

Things I disliked:
1. Despite the central location there are not too many restaurants or shops close by.

2. No gym, swimming pool or masseuse.

Conclusion
The Townhouse Hotel is a solid four star city hotel in Capetown central. Although the beach is far away, several other tourist attractions are close-by. The restaurant is excellent, the rooms are well-furnished, spacious and boast exquisite views. Recommended.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

The Townhouse Hotel is a well located Hotel in central CP. Parking is cheap. Staff is friendly ans rooms are perfect after the renovation of bathrooms. Breakfast is delicious with a wide range of choice - but Cappuccino is an extra (R16). All in all we can totally recommend that hotel.

We booked this hotel for a 6 night stay in Cape Town, on our first night, the aircon in the room wasn't working, so the staff tried to settle the issue with a fan. On pushing them further, they finally gave us another room in the middle of the night. The next day, at 4PM the staff tried to push their way into the room with a master key while we were taking a small holiday nap. They insisted that we need to switch rooms as they had a family coming over and this was their only family room and also made up a story about having to check us out/in everyday. So basically, we had to switch rooms twice in 24 hours for no fault of ours. The last thing you would like to do on a holiday is constantly pack up and move because the hotel can't provide better service. Very frustrating and disappointing.

This is a wonderful hotel to use as a base for sight seeing around Cape Town.
Close to My Citi bus stops.
Staff are fantastic.
Breakfast buffet excellent.
Rooms very comfortable.
Highly recommend.
Company gardens are just round the corner which is a very pleasant place to relax.

I stayed for one night on business. Good location for the centre of town. Check in was swift, rooms were clean and generally good. Food and service was good. Bag storage was efficient. Internet in the lobby worked well. The building work was on going and there was no gym. I thought it was a bit over priced for what you get. Check out was quite slow and the hotel taxi service did not show so after 40 mins waiting I flagged down a tax in the street. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

I was here on a group travel. It served our needs well. It is in a great location for those who want to go around and see the local area. It is a little far from the Waterfront, but it isn't difficult to get to.

The facilities were clean, the bar is open 24 hours, the food in the restaurant is terrific, and the service is spectacular! The servers were friendly and willing to chat and help you in anyway they possibly can. If I were to return to Cape Town on business or for solo travel, I would definitely make this a first choice option.
