Situated in a prime part of the city

The property’s central location makes it ideal for sightseeing or visiting the waterfront. Guests report there are plenty of interesting shops and restaurants in the vicinity, and it’s a great spot to view historical buildings or easily access Table Mountain.

Private rooms have an old world charm

Negative Reviews

On-site dining experience needs improvement

This hotel offers three choices when it comes to dining, but reviews state the experience can be lacklustre. Service is often too slow, and the dining areas do not appear well suited for large groups, which can leave diners feeling cramped.

Wi-Fi access is poor

Guests sometimes have to wander the hotel to find a good Wi-Fi connection. Because of its reported opulence throughout the property, having this drawback can be disappointing to guests, especially those in need of staying online.

Limited choices with food.

The hotel’s on-site restaurants offer various cuisine but some of the guests have felt the need of extending the menu especially for children. There are limited choices for vegetarians and in some instances food was of poor standard.
