For the last 3 nights of our South Africa trip, we booked into a Junior Suite. The room was decked out with gorgeous reconditioned and antique furniture, with a beautiful bathroom suite of rain shower and massive bath tub. The room had all the facilities you needed, though tea and coffee facilities would be nice (although they will happily deliver to your room).
The staff there were second to none. We travelled with our 22 month old and every single staff member, from cleaner to manager, went out of their way to make her as welcome as we felt. The reception staff were knowledgeable and happily booked tours or recommended restaurants.
The location was spot on. As part of the Heritage Square itself, there were 7 restaurants and bars (if my memory is correct) as part of the Square. Some accessible from the internal courtyard, and some from the outside. Most importantly of all, it felt safe. The location was a stone’s throw from a host sites, including the trendy Waterkant, as well as Company's Garden, the museums and the like in the other direction. Also, only a short drive to the the V & A.
Defiantly a recommendation for a big chain hotel alternative.
