My husband and enjoyed an absolutely superb stay this week with the friendliest staff in this beautiful, elegant, yet unpretentious hotel, located in a secure location that made us feel extremely safe walking about. Our accommodations couldn’t have been better — our huge room right on the harbour waterfront with a full view of Table Mountain was breathtaking!! This was a complete 10 star experience, that could not have been improved in any way! We are delighted with our stay at this hotel and look forward to returning! Thanks to all the staff!!
