Stayed here for a weekend at the end of the Garden Route. From the moment of arrival we experienced great hospitality. They had a very good deal of a 'winter special' which gave us a junior suite at a great price. I could not fault the hospitality of any of the staff in anyway.
The breakfast was very good and plentiful though finishes a little early on the Sunday.
A really positive bonus is their shuttle bus service which you can book to drop you to the waterfront. They will also pick you up anytime up to 11 PM. This balances the fact that the hotel is not that central. Though if you want to take a city tour bus they stop right outside the front door!
A small negative would be the wifi system. While wifi is free in public spaces you are charged in your room subject to your usage i.e you pay per MB. This means that at times the bar area is full of people logging on!
Overall its a fine hotel with top class hospitality and one that we would be more than happy to return to the next time we visit Cape Town.
