More infor at check in pls
A new built hotel so very much fresh and modern. My room overlooked table mountain which was nice. What i did not get told at check in was there is a free shuttle on the hour to v and a waterfront. So its not a hotel you can really walk to and from. The check in was probably my least positive experience. Most energy collecting the charge of the stay and the deposit (btw which ive still not had back). Breakfast was great and the staff are great in there. So im left disapointed with check in and the monies and the fact that the check in girl offered nothing in terms of information. However other than that a good hotel generally.

Great stay close to the Waterfront
What a lovely hotel to stay at. The breakfast was exceptional! Rooms were spacious and very clean. Service staff were excellent. The only "suggestion" I would have is to re-look at access to the hotel from the Waterfront. A gate is available leading to the waterfront but it was locked and we then had to walk around through the CTICC as both bus and water taxi (very cool!) were done for the evening.

Superb new hotel
I stayed here for 2 days before my event started at a different hotel and was glad I chose this hotel. It is very modern and the rooms are excellent and very large. Great water pressure and facilities and fast Wi-Fi.. Brillant view of Table Mountain from my room Super breakfast buffet and service. Free water taxi service to the waterfront is great way to see another side of Cape Town This is my hotel of choice when next in the area

Brand new hotel near city centre and V&A
This hotel just opened in December 2018 and is a stylish addition to Cape Town. We especially liked the friendly welcome from staff and the wonderful views of Table Mountain from our hotel room. There's a complimentary canal boat connecting the hotel to the V&A Waterfront (the journey is ~20 mins and don't forget to pick-up a voucher from reception). And everywhere else is an inexpensive Uber ride away. Secure underground parking was a reasonable R100/night. There was a wide selection for Breakfast and it was generally tasty (just avoid the salmon). The staff could be more consistent: we were only offered fresh barrister made coffee on our 4th and last morning, and no attempt at all was made to publicise the made-to-order eggs available from the kitchen. I would have rated the AC excellent, save for a few teething problems and niggles from what felt like a new and slightly inexperienced team. For instance, our dirty towels were removed one day, yet not replaced. Shower gel was not replenished when empty. The in-room Nespresso machine was a nice touch, yet impossible to plug-in as it didn't have a South African power plug!
