                  Fabulous hotel, great friendly staff, fantastic location on V&A Waterfront overlooking the harbour and perfect view of Table mountain

                  Its very difficult to find fault with this hotel. If I had to be really 'picky' the shower head in room 229 is ok if you are under 1.5m tall. Everything else was pretty close to perfect.

                  Menu waitered breakfast, with a vast selection.

                  No pool, had to use one across the road at another hotel and it was not heated, very cold.

                  Breakfast buffet was wonderful. Our room was directly on the Waterfront with a spectacular view of Table Mountain.

                  The staff were extremely attentive to my needs, but not hanging over my shoulder. Someone always seemed to turn up at just the right moment to offer assistance. I enjoyed being welcomed by name upon arrival at the airport, at check-in, and each time I called the reception. I also enjoyed that the staff asked each morning how the previous day had been. They were genuinely concerned that we had an excellent stay while in Cape Town.

                  we ordered room service at 2am and it was disaterous. We ordered 2 meals and received just one after 45 min and the other meal which was Italian sausage and mash turned up without sausage. the duty manager the next day did explain that this bad service 'was not the norm' and they took it off my account.also the barman was always hard to find...

                  The views from our room were stunning. The hotel was perfectly situated within the v&a complex. The service we received from all the staff was great and I cannot fault the hotel or the hospitality we received when staying there. I will be back.
