Just ended a 14 day stay in this hotel, wonderful staff from desk/floor to bar all very helpful, A really good location as you are almost in the city centre but no traffic noise, breakfast is more than ample and I can't see why some people complain about the choice of food as what I witnesses was a large choice at breakfast time.
Large spacious room with flat screen tv and movie channels to watch at no extra cost, I have fell in love with Cape Town and will come back again and my choice of hotel shall be the Fountains again, only one small complaint on my last night early in the evening my Visa card was stolen at a ATM not far from the hotel this was a slick operation by a team of three thieves, they had blocked the machine so my card would not go in and quick as a flash one thieve "assisted me" and quicker still he palmed the card, as I now reliesed that three thieves were next to me I just played along and allowed them to watch me entering an incorrect PIN number,once this was witnesses two of the gang went off and the other one delayed me (this was to allow them time to nip around the corner to the nearest ATM) as it was not far to the hotel I returned there and noticed a large number of guests awaiting to check in, I approached the desk and informed one staff of my situation and immediately he dialled visa for me, my grip was after the call I was was charged for this service, Yes I understand someone has to pay for the call but it would have been a nice gesture if they waivered the cost.(card cancelled and nothing taken...just a reminder about the Emergency Visa Card replacement...would take two days!!! Just glad when I call the fire service in an emergency they don't take the same time)
