Took a friend to the world class site of the Blue Peter Hotel and ordered seafood curry with our beer. What a surprise to find chopped processed crab sticks in the curry. With all the fresh fish in Cape Town, why would a hotel even consider serving oriental processed white meat, mixed with corn starch and artificial flavouring as seafood in their seafood curry? Is fraud being perpetuated?

We dropped in for coffee, and for a business meeting, with the intention of having lunch. It was a good day and the view from the bar/dining area towards Table Mountain was absolutely breathtaking ! The coffee took a while to arrive (having had to summons a waiter first) and was rather underwhelming. We took a squizz at the plastic encursted lunch menu .. and decided to leave ... everything suddenly looked rather tired . We DID enjoy the view

I have been going to the blue Peter for 30 years. Seen three kids running on the lawn and jumping off the walls. Pizza and the best lamb curry and Iconic Hannibal my beloved waiter. But it needs to move with the times. Better wine list and an updated menu Pizza bases were cooked from scratch on the old days. Who is the owner of this iconic landmark. Step up and listen to the locals that have supported you for 30 plus years.

The Blue Peter! On new years day my cousin and her friend joined me at the Blue Peter. My regular as I have been a patron there for well over 10 years. I was disgusted as to what transpired!!!! I found a table that friends where leaving and as we were seated our large umbrella blew out of the table stand and flew across another table I jumped up and rescued said Brolly and secured to to the table with the rope attached before anyone could get hurt. The staff stood and watched as I retrieved and secured said Brolly. Not even 5 minutes later another larger umbrella flew from a few tables away with the sharp pole end hitting my cousins friend in the head then smashing plates and glasses on the table, rendering Phillipa almost unconscious and me having to clean the smashed goods from the table while my cousin and other patrons rendered assistance to Phillipa in the ladies room. Not one staff member came over to ask if they could clean the glass or assist with Phillipa. I had to go upstairs to the hotel to ask for the manager after assessing that Phillipa who was bleeding and vomiting in the bathroom. I asked the manager to please call an ambulance as Phillipa was in and out of consciousness and he insisted that we take her to hospital. I asked to speak to the General manager and followed the manager towards where the GM was only to hear the manager say to him THIS GUY is causing a scene! At this stage I lost my temper and said if they wanted a scene I was happy to oblige!! The general managers attitude was worse than the manager stating that we should get her off the property to a hospital and that there was nothing he or any other staff member could do about it and that they had done all they could. Another lady who I presume works there said that she was shocked that they did not have a medical kit on premises and not to worry that Phillipa had now stoped bleeding and was still ONLY throwing up! As I was on my bike I had to find Phillipa's keys and locate her vehicle to rush her off to Net care. When I arrived at Net care with a still vomiting and semi conscious Phillipa I asked if Blue Peter had in fact called an ambulance as they are now insisting they did! I was told by 3 emergency receptionists that no call was made! While Phillipa was sent for CT scans etc. I had to Uber back to Blue Peter to retrieve my bike. When I returned there were no less that 12 tables seated holding the poles of their umbrellas as the wind had picked up even more. I asked to see the GM again and asked why they had not secured the umbrellas as yet and he rudely insisted they had and shouted he was not going to speak to me anymore and I must speak directly to his lawyer. I asked for the owners details and he said he was under no obligation to give me this information and I was to deal with him directly even though he was no longer willing to speak to me! I explained that this entire situation had been handled poorly and he argued back at me that he and his staff had done all they could do. There were at least another 20 patrons coming in and out of the ladies asking for a first aid kit and ice or if the ambulance was called. A cleaning lady with a plastic apron and gloves said that an ambulance was called from Net Care but as we now know no one was called!! I find this entire situation very disturbing as Phillipa is now liable for over R20 000 medical bills a ruined vacation not mention a pretty crappie start to her new year and the management and staff at Blue Peter find this to be a trivial incident with not a care in the world!!! If anyone has the direct contact information for the owners of this establishment I would really appreciate it if you could DM me. Thanks in advance and Happy new year!

Blue Peter has SHOCKING service. Their food and drinks are overated and so expensive. We use to LOVE going there. The past few years it has deteriorated incredibly! Managers are extremely rude and do not care at all. They tell you to f off when you complain.
