Pros. When the sun is shining there is no better hotel in Cape Town to be a guest at. Very luxurious yet trendy and the staff are excellent, a number of whom have worked there for decades.

9.6Wonderful
Daniel, Sept 2014

Pros. Great location on the beach, many nice bars and restaurants nearby, and easy and beautiful drive into city. Rooms are very elegant, restful and clean. A lot for your money by US and European standards.

Cons. Service at breakfast seemed spotty. Management doesn't seem to have empowered staff with enough information or authority to answer basic questions or make basic decisions.
