Nice property but so many issues
Buffet breakfast has many delicious offerings. Table service is friendly but the people preparing eggs to order seem unhappy but maybe that’s because many of the guests are rude to them. Shower water was unpredictable - sudden changes from cold to hot to cold made for an unpleasant experience. Front desk staff also seem overwhelmed but again - many rude guests interrupting them constantly. No electrical outlets near the bed - this is 2017, get with the times.

Horrible customer service!
I had great expectations for the President hotel as I had stayed there within weeks of it opening in the 90s. Boy was I wrong. We arrived and somehow the hotel had a system glitch and the room book was "unavailable" despite a booking 3 months in advance. We booked a double sea view room (I had even called to confirm the room a couple of days in advance and all looked good). When we arrived we were given a twin mountain view room which was TINY. Our luggage barely fit. We were told by the front desk manager Kassiem that we should check back the next day for our originally booked room type and that we would recieve a discount for the 2 nights. A day goes by and no room available. Finally on the second day we were moved to our booked room type helped by Thomas (who actually was very helpful). The breakfast was good but service lacking as it took 20+ minutes to get some coffee....Upon checkout the front desk associate had no record of any discount we were supposed to get and back and forth emails from Kassiem have not resulted in any successful discount despite him saying its been processed and confirmed with Expedia/ How on earth can you run a business and not have the ability to provide a discount/refund?! It is absurd and its been 2 weeks now. I'm starting to think it was a farce to calm us when our room wasn't available. Will not be back!

Great hotel right on water
Loved the hotel location. The service staff could show some courtesy to its customers.. esp. in the breakfast area. Rooms were great, comfortable, decent size. right next to beach.. awesome for running on the water.

Great few days in Cape Town
This hotel was perfect for our stay in Cape Town and ideally located between V&A and Camps bay. We had a little hiccup with them finding our reservation at check in but after that everything was pretty much perfect. Service can be a little slow at times but to be honest the hotel was fully booked when we were there. Although the rooms are a little dated they are a good size and comfortable and the rest of the hotel facilities are great!
