HOTEL: Hotel was lovely, staff are so friendly and genuinely helpful - but discreet when you want them to be.
We often had the pool to ourselves, and a break in the sauna was a great way to recharge before dinner!
Breakfast had lots of choice and was plentiful. It has a very relaxed atmosphere.
ROOMS: Loved the fact I could soak in the bath and take in the view! We slept with the curtains open so we'd see the tablecloth rolling over Table Mountain in the mornings, it's beautiful. Balcony doors slide open to make the most of that unbelievable panoramic - we often had a glass of wine here before heading to dinner. Rooms are large and airy, very clean and bed was comfortable
LOCATION: Great location, short taxi to V&A in evenings (we walked there during day), lots of shops and sights around, very much in the middle of everything. We spent alot of time in The Company's Gardens with a coffee and good book to soak up the sun. Great little cafe in there too - salads and light bites, pretty surroundings.
HIGHLIGHTS: We had a fantastic meal in Bombay Brasserie - it had been recommended by friends before our visit and didn't disappoint! Food was amazing, you must try! Wine list had very good options, staff were fantastic.
