We didn't want to leave this fabulous hotel - or Cape Town for that matter. The welcome, the facilities, the service, the smile and the help in a 4 day stay was stunningly good.
It started badly with a downpour as we entered the airport terminal and then our taxi driver wasn't there to greet us. One quick call, a ten minute delay and we were whisked into The Gardens area, rather pleased that the taxi meter was well below predictions. As we exited the taxi co-ower Klaus paid him, insisting it was his fault for not realising Virgin had changed their flight times.
Breakfast is fantastic, the fruit so fresh it was a different world, and they would cook you what you want. The rooms were lovely with so many extras, a nice balcony and lovely bathroom.
They gave us so much advice on getting around, no taxi was more than £5 except when we boarded our P+O cruise ship Arcadia for the journey home. We didn't want to leave, every member of staff was like a good friend.
I have stayed in many top hotels around the world, but have to say that this was my best ever hotel experience. Wonderful beds, understated luxury, immaculately clean.
Thanks to Klaus, Steffi, Chris, Liston, Claire and so many others I wish I could remember.
If you are in Cape Town I would urge you to stay here. They even ledn you a free mobile phone with the hotel and a safe taxi company pre-programmed. If there was anything they didn't think of to look after us then I can't think of anything either.
It was sheer perfection!
