Exceptional 10.0
High rise hotel with either sea view or mountain view
ie5 night trip with friends
Very Good 8.0
The elevators were nice for the view. The staff was generally pleasant, a few a little pushy in hinting for tips. The free wifi is not so free after you use up the small amount they provide. It makes me think of bait and switch.

Cape Town Family Holiday
Old and dusty furniture. Took 2 days to have a third towel as we were three in the family room....Asked the staff at reception everyday but no towels arrived!!! Bath leaking after showering so water all over the place. No water to drink everyday in the room, had to ask and after the second day they placed 1 bottle of water for 3 of us!!! The windows opened completely on the 26th floor without any security, I found that quite dangerous.... The staff were very kind. i will not stay in this Hotel again when back in Cape Town. Not worth it.

Exceptional 10.0
Table mountain view from my room was amazing and also the area in which this hotel is located is convenient for getting to V&A water front
ManishVaidya, gb5 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Absolutely in the middle of downtown, with easy, complimentary shuttle access to the waterfront shopping and major events! Staff was friendly and helpful, and very punctual when we requested things like an ironing board and room service! Hotel itself was beautiful with a clear view of Table Mountain on the one side. It was unfortunate that there was so much wind when we stayed, as the howling was loud through the window/walls. Ear plugs were needed.
