Rooms are as you would expect in the Hilton group - clean, airy and comfortable.
Breakfasts are very good and we also booked a dinner package and the evening meals were very good. Package we booked was great value.
All the staff we encountered were very polite and helpful, especially the concierge and waiters - well done Hilton
Very good to have a free courtesy bus to take you to the V&A in central Cape Town but would be nice to have a later return option.
Very close to main road so easy to get out and about but you do need a car. Hotel is also very close to Kirstenbos botanical gardens which is worth a visit.
Put us in normal room even though we'd booked a deluxe queen - took over an hour to sort it out but outcome was a deluxe king room, so good outcome.
Wifi - give you a code which changes daily and keeps timing out - very frustrating
Fifth floor - had a rear view of table mountain which was good but very very windy so couldn't open the windows as too noisy. Also room smelt of drains.
Toiletries - don't get the same as you would in England and we had booked a deluxe room so I would have expected mouthwash etc.
