Good, but could be better
Had a week long stay here for business. Service was very good and hotel location could not have been better for food selection. Overall I had a great stay. However, three things created problems for me. There was only 1 outlet in the room and it was on the other side of the room from the bed. This created problems charging devices. Second, the room had no clock, which was an inconvenience. Finally, all the doors had closers that allowed the doors to slam incredibly loudly. At all hours of the day and night you'd hear amazingly loud door slams. Very annoying for relaxing or sleeping. The fitness facility is located in the Commodore next door. After having a look there, I will stay there next time.

Best hotel experience ever
Possibly the nicest and most helpful hotel staff never. I can't get over how incredibly, authentically kind the staff was. Plus the accommodations were in perfect shape -- and quiet. Very authentic character that reflects CapeTown's history. A far cry from the synthetic feel of huge hotels.

Great place!
Great location, great staff, great breakfast (pay the extra fee, it's worth it). The only thing missing was a balcony. Definitely recommend.

Bernie's Enjoyable stay
Conveniently located to the V&A Waterfront via their "Ridge". The hotel was a main pick up point for all tours. The service was outstanding and the breakfast buffet was outstanding.

bad experience
They dont care about there guest plus we were group of five we book two rooms because on there website there is not an option to add third person. we were staying next door hotel which was own by same owner called commodore. we were very happy and staff very friendly but in this hotel we have to book another room because we have third person so you have to book separate room so thats what we did because we were there to have fun not argue them about getting another room. there reception manager was pretty rude and was not helpful at all. we will never stay this place ever again.
