The staff were really terrific going out of their way to accommodate us. Our tour was cancelled because of COVID 19 and we had to extend our stay at the Holiday Inn to allow time to book flights - it was all handled very well and we didn't have to change rooms or anything - very flawless. The bartender, Justin, went out of the way to help us and look after.

The property is conveniently located in the CBD area, very close to popular Long Street and within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront (would only consider that during the day). An airport transfer can be arranged directly with the hotel upon making a reservation, which makes a late night arrival into Cape Town airport a little less stressful. The hotel itself has a modern look and feel, although basic, but very adequate for the price they charge.The initial room we were given was facing the George street, and it can get very noisy form the early hours as the stall holders start setting up their stalls. Asked to be moved to a different room, and were given a much quieter room for the remainder of the stay. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and they even found a jar of peanut butter when requested. Parking is available at the hotel, although given hotel's location getting to the garage is a little tricky. But the price, location and very friendly and helpful staff make this hotel super good value for money.
