    Stayed two nights here and couldn't have been happier. The staff were delightful, the room fantastic and the food was fresh and tasty. Some previous reviews have criticised the lunch/dinner menu but we had lunch on our balcony and we're delighted with it.

    We are most interested in having a direct view of Table Mountain from our room. It is not that clear from either the reviews or the photos if that is true. There are several photos of Table Mountain from what appears to be the common areas. Could someone share what is true?
