Very clean and staff are very attentive. Good breakfast

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The elevators were nice for the view. The staff was generally pleasant, a few a little pushy in hinting for tips. The free wifi is not so free after you use up the small amount they provide. It makes me think of bait and switch.

Cape Town Family Holiday

Old and dusty furniture. Took 2 days to have a third towel as we were three in the family room....Asked the staff at reception everyday but no towels arrived!!! Bath leaking after showering so water all over the place. No water to drink everyday in the room, had to ask and after the second day they placed 1 bottle of water for 3 of us!!! The windows opened completely on the 26th floor without any security, I found that quite dangerous.... The staff were very kind. i will not stay in this Hotel again when back in Cape Town. Not worth it.
