“Quality, but could improve”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Breakfast could be better. The staff apparently very friendly, but clearly have been instructed to trot out the same cliches. The hotel, although well decorated is sterile and lacking atmosphere. Worth it, but won't return.

Dear Guest

Thanks for taking the time to post your review here on Trip Advisor. We are sorry that you were not happy with our breakfast selection, and you found that the hotel lacks atmosphere.

We certainly hope you would change your mind about staying with us again in the future.

Best Regards

This was our third stay , although their had been long gaps , location is still superb for all the tourist sites, ie Parliament , Company gardens , numerous museums, Adderley & Long Streets , etc .Rooms have all had a major refit , to bring them up an excellent standard , furniture , beds , wet rooms , .The disappointed centres around the restaurant on the first floor , which has had a complete refit , with ghastly BIG uncomfortable furniture , which has had a knock on effect with indifferent food , service , also , such a shame . If you do stop not a lot nearby restaurants to walk to in the evening , so plan ahead & book , local taxi outside very good , & reasonable , book a return cab , cape town @ night is busy ,

Room Tip: To get away from the road noise ask for a room on the top floors if available , plus you may get a v...

This hotel offers some of the most beautiful and modern rooms I have seen in Cape Town. It is definitely value for money and I would have thought that it is a 5 star hotel. The restaurant is a bit expensive, but the food is of very high quality and when brought to the table, plated like 5 star cuisine - which justifies the pricing. Can't wait to stay over here again!

I stayed there for a night on May 5th, 2014. Great hotel, very good location (5 minutes from the Green market), quiet, clean and food is good. The room I booked was supposed to be small. Actually, it is not that small since the space is well used.

Long street is just up the road, contemporary decorated. Its an old hotel but it is very nicely decorated. Our room service was served by an old lady who has worked there for 40years and love the hotel and how good they have been to her. Had no option but to give her a very good tip she reminded me of my granny. The room sevice was good and breakfast so overall its a lovely hotel for business travellers and the town is very safe for walking....

Stayed here for 11 days on a solo trip in one of the deluxe rooms. Not the biggest room but big enough and great bang for your buck with a great location in the middle of town. Entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. After I arrived I noticed the window in my room wasn't closing properly and causing a bit of a draft. Phoned down to the front desk and someone was up to fix it in under 2 minutes. Only complaint would be that the a la carte breakfast left a little to be desired, eggs always seemed a little runny, that could also just be my personal taste though. That being said the buffet and dinner were always great and the service was outstanding. I will return!

My booking came with free breakfast ( not sure if they all do.) The breakfast was delicious. Cooked to order hot items and a buffet of Pastries, fruit, cheeses & cold meats. I used the laundry service offered, was happy with it. The reception was friendly and helpful with directions. free good working wifi. They gave me a cookie & bottle of water each evening. Lots of movies (older) show on the T.v in room. took about 30 min walk to the Waterfront. Restaurant had wonderful food & staff.
