I stayed for two nights on business. It was very well located and the staff were extremely helpful. I'd definitely stay again if I was on a business trip. If on holiday maybe stay somewhere nearer the harbour.

When we visited they were busy renovating. This was never comunicated to us before hand. So inbetween the paint card board on the floor etc we had an ok stay.
The fact that the renovations was not comunicated makes one feel that they did it on purpose just to keep the hotel full.
I hope the management take note.

Dear Guest

Many thanks for your feedback. We would like to apologise for the unsatisfactory stay you had with us. Unfortunately our bathroom renovations took about a month longer than was originally anticipated. After the actual renovations the passages on the different floors needed to be repainted.
The whole renovation was communicated on our website before and during the process as well as on many other hotel booking sites, but clearly something went wrong with your reservation with us, that left you unaware of our bathroom modernisation.
We hope that in the future you would decide to stay with us again and give us the opportunity to impress you with our product and service.

Best Regards
Townhouse Management Team

I stayed for 2 nights in a single room, a little small but comfortable. Location is good in the city centre, in a quiet area. Free wi-fi. Parking is available for a daily small fee, around 4 euros. Breakfast is very good, I was just opened so the service was fast. The staff are incredible kind and helpful, always with a smile. I had a little problem with my rental car the day I leave and they were really helpful and avoid I lost my early flight. Thanks a lot!!

Extremely impressed with hotel upgrade done from what it was.
Definitely a much better hotel than most in the surrounding areas
Close to Parliament (2-3 minutes walk)
It is a business and leisure hotel.

Dear guest

Many thanks for taking the time to post your review here on Trip Advisor.

We are sorry that you were not happy with the size of your room and the lack of drawer space, which ultimately led to a disappointing stay with us.
We would like to point out that extra drawer space can be provided on request.

Your comment about the poached eggs has been brought to the attention of our executive Chef to action.
We hope that if you are planning another trip to Cape Town in the future, that you would give the Townhouse Hotel another try.

Best Regards
Townhouse Management Team

My wife and i spend our last 3 nights here during our trip. We booked the Jr. Suite and was extremely pleased by it. We didnt eat on the property, since there was so many restaurants near by, but we walked passed it every morning and smelled quite nice. The hotel is in an excellent location. Close to Long st (5 min walk) Close to Green Market Sq (5 min walk) tons of museums and monuments (5 min walk). The staff couldnt have been more helpful. We had a late flight saturday evening, and after a booking mishap with a tour company (my fault) we came back to the hotel and they let us in our old room after we checked out. They let us stay there until our flight well after check out. Great staff, great location, great hotel. great city.. What else could you ask for.

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.
