We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it - the rooms have bags of character (we were in room 104 which was simply stunning) and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Location is good, 20min walk to the waterfront, 10min walk to slave lodge, 5min walk to local bus stops for City Sightseeing or feeder route into the civic centre. Good restaurants within the historic square - African Cafe is a very good 'all you can eat' african buffet with cheap drinks, buffet itself is RND 245pp (which isn't written down anywhere!), food isn't of top quality but for the overall experience well worth doing. Savoy Cabbage is more upmarket, around RND 180 for a main but excellent service and quality. There is also a wine bar in the square itself which serves good cheap eats and tapas......you really don't need to leave the hotel site in the evening to eat varied, good quality meals.......which is a good thing as I wouldn't feel that confident walking around Cape Town at night especially having been threatened in broad daylight (in the Companys Gardens) by someone looking for money (he didn't get anything from us!) when there were tens of people in the area! Breakfast in the hotel is also varied and of good quality but the full English seemed to arrive cold each morning (possibly due them waiting to deliver both breakfasts together).
Only other minor gripe with the hotel - internet terminal temperamental. Overall, a great little find in a handy spot in Cape Town, 4.5 stars.
