The location of the hotel. Pros include a small owner operated hotel with a lot of charm. There is a lot of interaction between owners and guests, much like a bed and breakfast. That is good for us as the owners were quite nice and very helpful with trip planning and the like. Because it is a small hotel that is privately run with several other nice employees, sometimes there isn't anyone at the desk but you can dail the owners in their cottage next door and they are great about helping you. The hotel itself is quite comfortable with nicely appointed spacious rooms for our family of five (rooms one and two). There is a pool but we could of course not swim as we were here in the winter (70 degree gorgeous days). Breakfast is varied and quite good, they provide hot breakfast upon request and vary the daily offerings. An open honesty bar, inexpensive laundering, and awesome roof tops are major pluses. The only contrarian thing we can say is the location is not optimal. It is not close to anything in cape town. While it is in a very safe part of the city bowl, the entire surrounding neighborhood is practically in lockdown (electric and barb wire). So, you must have a car or be reliant on taxis and tours. The good news is that taxis are cheap, six dollars or so for five to get to the waterfront, Camps Bay, and other spots. Bottom line is that we really liked the hotel, but would likely stay closer to the water when we return to cape town. Four nights minimum in this wonderful place, get out to the peninsula, wine country, and hermanus for whale watching. Cape Town is a world class city. If you want to go to Robben Island, make sure you book your ticket before you come. It is booked about 5 days out.
