We had a great stay but that was thanks to the Top of the Ritz restaurant which i believe is closed down. Would not be staying at the Ritz Hotel again since the restaurant was the main reason for our stay.

I went to cape Town for business and decided to stay Ritz hotel. It's Quite, safe, very clean and good view from my suit. Its really very good place to stay. I really liked but i can't give 5 stars only because of lack of parking space.

amazing meal! last night in cape town we made a reservation at top of the ritz for the tasting menu. it was phenomenal!! the views were unbelievable! the food was extremely nicely presented and delicious. creative courses, all of them! and one was better than the next! great portions and values. staff was very good. however, they did forget to pour the 2nd half of our bottle and we had to asked. still would highly recommend. the rotating restaurant is a must do! (not sure why the restaurant trip advisor link specifically for the restaurant says closed) the lobby is also very cute! should have stayed here

I took my mom here for Mother’s Day dinner. It was truly amazing. The service was impeccable and I could not fault it at all. The food was flawless and reached all my expectations. The staff went out of their way to tend to every need and were always easy to reach, really an amazing experience.

Beautiful hotel, great location, friendly staff from the porters, receptionist, bar tenders to management.. Excellent for both business and leisurely travel. I love this hotel as they refer to me by name and really what I like and dislike. This is my home away from home when I'm in Cape Town :-)
