We booked two weeks at this hotel for our first visit to Cape Town, and couldn't have asked for a better location or better hotel. Our very large room was on the first floor overlooking the harbour and Table Mountain - spectacular view! No balcony, but large double doors open with a railing on outside. Fresh breeze, sound of seagulls mingled with chimes of yacht rigging swaying and occasional ships horns. Seals playing in water. Quiet at night. The kingsize bed was comfortable, 4 beautifully upholstered armchairs and large coffee table. Beautiful bathroom with twin sinks, large bath and amazing walk in shower. Separate toilet with basin. Water always hot. Tea & coffee with kettle provided.(plus biscuits). Could have done with a few more milk sachets perhaps, and bar fridge in room not quite cold enough, but neither an issue for us. Was impressed with plug panel above dressing table - no foreign adaptor needed, as it had British and European sockets for charging phones, etc.Good hairdryer. Bottles of water and sweets put in room every night when beds turned down. Cleanliness good. Lobby small, but adequate and efficient. Service excellent and very friendly throughout the hotel. Free Wi-Fi in hotel and sister hotels opposite. Small swimming pool over the road in Dock House hotel - beautiful lawned garden and poolside sunbeds, towels, drinks, etc. Free parking for guests, but didn't need a car for the most part, as so central to many attractions and public transport.
