2nd time staying at the AC and although COVID definitely hampers the hotel experience at most places, the fine folks at the AC do a great job. Very friendly staff, especially in the restaurant and bar area. Always eager to help with a smile on their faces (at least I think they were smiling under their masks!). The breakfast is outstanding, tons of great options and it's unlimited. Fun menu in the bar area and very good quality food for a hotel. We were luckily upgraded to a 2-room suite which was a huge plus! Location is perfect, short 5 minute walk to the V & A and easy access with plenty of underground parking. We will be back!!

Good hotel to visit Cape Town with family or friends. The staff was super nice and helpful. There is parking underground and you can walk 8 minutes to V&A. Room was very nice size and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast menu was very complete and food was delicious. There a small pool in the roof, water was fresh and the view was lovely to lion’s head.

My fiancé and I stayed here as part of our trip to South Africa through Travel Discounters. It was a very new and modern hotel with a great view of Lion’s Head Mountain. The breakfast buffet was great and the hotel was in a central location, but it was a bit hard to find your way around without knowing where to go. We managed to find a great restaurant on the waterfront where we got some fresh seafood and walked back. Overall would highly recommend as a good quality hotel with great food and reliable. Perfect for a short stay.

It was our third stay at this relatively new hotel and it was really good to see that the hotel has not deteriorated at all. The room was in excellent condition and has all the modern amenities and comforts. Definitely the best rooms of any hotel in CT. Our major concern during our latest trip was that of Covid and the hotel has taken all the necessary steps to ensure that a safe environment has been created including 2 sanitisers on every floor by the elevators as well as at the entrance and generally scattered throughout. The usual buffet breakfast was converted to an a la carte menu and the service and food was of an outstanding quality. Thanks to all the staff for making it a memorable stay for our family and we will definitely choose to stay here in the future.
