We stayed in this hotel when we came back from the Garden Route, as we were flying out the next day, we thought it’s better to book a hotel in a convenient location and close to the Water Front, didn’t expect much from it though. When we arrived at the hotel, we were happy with the location. However, the interior deco of the hotel itself is a bit cold and plain. To be honest, I didn’t have a good feeling about it while I was in the lobby. But when we walked into our room, we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. It consists of a big living room, a huge kitchen and a six-seater dining table, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It’s modern and it’s huge!
The other nice surprise came later in the evening, when I was looking for direction for a restaurant we read about on the Insight Guides book - Cape Town. There was a gentleman at the reception area who was very helpful, not only drew the direction on the city map for us, he also recommended several other restaurants with different style of food. We only found out early next morning (when we check out), that gentleman was Mr Desmond O’Connor, the General Manager of the Mandela Rhodes Hotel. Mr O’Connor was at the reception area again (mind you, he was there last night). He asked us whether we enjoyed the food last night, and even offered to make us a dining itinerary for different restaurants next time we visit Cape Town. We were very impressed by his hands-on style of management and his genuine interests in his guests. We have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to anyone.
