Descent room for the cost. Room was large and bedding was clean. There was no bar fridge in the room. If you book directly breakfast is included. The discounted prices advertised does not include breakfast. Note that there is no secure parking

One is forced to pay for overnight car parking that is normal in Cape town, but at this hotel one pays before even leaving your vehicle, breakfast is served in the room on a plate with eggs, and pastry all on same plates, they blame Covid but hotels and restaurants are allowed 50% occupancy and they not close to 50%. Its a poorly managed , Hair was still in the showers i am bald so definitely not mine.

The pictures of this hotel is deceiving to say the least. The actual hotel looks run down and dirty. Room service does not know or care enough to do a proper job of cleaning. Over and above that, the parking is terrible, we felt very unsafe and did not want to leave our car there but had no choice. Pastries at breakfast are stale, bacon swimming in oil. Cape Town is such a beautiful city and has so many better hotels to offer. Stay away from this one!!

This is not my first visit to this hotel and won't be my last. They had a few snags but I suppose it's due to the lockdown and staff probably forgot the basics... The TV Did didn't work and there was only 1 towel. then I asked for it to be checked upon going out, 6 hours later after returning it still wasn't done and the excuse given was we didn't want to go in your room! then when it was eventually swopped with another TV we were left watching the poorest quality picture ever.... the coffee cups were chipped as well.

The hotel had reopened for people taking UK repatriation flights back to the UK so it is unfair to be too critical as it was offering a skeleton service. The hotel was still pretty much locked down so bar, restaurant etc were closed and meals were left outside bedroom doors. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and beds very comfortable. However there was no excuse for the quality of the dinner - steak so tough it was uneatable and warmed up over cooked fish, no starter or dessert. Very bad value for R250. We were told at reception when we booked in we could order a simple breakfast which we did but in the morning there was none and the kitchen closed. They could have done better with very little effort.
