President Hotel, Cape Town
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!

Good location poor cleanliness
The hotel is situated in the best location and the pool is fabulous. The breakfast was excellent. However, on checking in they did not explain the Room keys to us or that you needed pool tokens for the towels. Our room did not have a second pedestal which is hugely inconvenient and the floor was sandy. When I looked under the bed upon leaving, as I’m sure most people do, to check that you’ve left nothing behind , I was horrified to see a thick layer of dust. I feel that cleanliness is vital regardless of the time of the year and can certainly be improved.
