We have stayed here many times over the past nine years, both on our own and with various overseas visitors. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished, the area is generally quiet, the location is excellent, being within two or three minutes walking distance of Maria’s Greek cafe, and the Aubergine, one of the best restaurants in Cape Town. Breakfasts prepared by Eunice are legendary. Why then only three stars instead of five? Over the past couple of years we had noticed a gradual deterioration in various aspects, an increasing number of maintenance problems, and now, since the new owner took over, the tragic removal of the honesty bar, evening snacks, and daily newspapers, with the fridge now containing only wine of uncertain provenance. Anyone staying here for the first time will undoubtedly be pleased, but the new owner needs to make a number of improvements otherwise he will lose loyal customers like ourselves.
