Score from 65 reviews Very good
Rooms quite small.
It is near by V&A waterfront
Very small room Lots of noise, specially the landaury machine in the lounges
Good location friendly helpful staff with the quirk of the old prison.Easy cheap on site parking.
Comfy beds and friendly staff
Easy walk to the Waterfront.
Evening buffet in the restaurant was uninspiring.
comfort-ability, huge shower and toilet, crystal white towels, safe facility.... it was all really excellent and exciting
customer service at the reception on arrival and when i was checking out. the gentleman seemed as if they do not know how or what to do in both occasions. the noise in the passage made by housekeeping people.
Location is excellent.
Lack of swimming pool
Location of the Hotel is great.
Thought we had asked for two twin beds but they couldn't accommodate us when we arrived. Also I had written ahead of time about the cost of transport to the hotel from the airport and was given the wrong information.
Friendliness of the staff
No space in the room Very bad matresses
The breakfast buffet is good.
The wifi was down our first day. The floors in our room were filthy. The rest of the room was nice except for the construction right across the street. No washclothes were provided so you may want to bring your own. The water temp would oscillate between hot and cold. For the money we paid, I really expected more.
There are no international TV news channels available. Instant coffee!
Desk staff very friendly and helpful.
Not told wifi changed every day. Maid did not always replace towels or bottled water.
Part of hotel is located in a building shared with a business school. Restaurant served all you can eat buffet dinner.
Everything was crisp and clean. The best location, especially because we were only ladies and could walk alone to the Waterfront and back.
We didn't like that we weren't able to connect both our iphones and ipads to the wifi. You can only connect 2 devices.
Walk in shower, views, friendly helpful staff
Location and parking, excellent. Room was modern and clean. Breakfast was plentiful.
Was told, when checking in, that credit card I booked with was needed for authentication purposes. I specifically said that I wanted to pay with a different card on checkout, which they agreed would be fine. However, my card was instantly debited for the full amount and I had to request a full refund so that I could pay with my other card. Staff tried to blame Booking.com and said they always took the money up front, but this wasn't the case and I was annoyed, as I'd been specific in stating that I'd be checking out using another card. Difficulty accessing wi-fi. Far too expensive. European prices in South Africa is just extortionate. A meal for 3 at the Ritz revolving restaurant, with 3 courses, wine and other drinks cost around GBP60 - the norm in my limited experience. 1 double and 1 single room, without breakfast, for just 1 night, cost around GBP240 or SAR4320, or 120 bottles of decent wine!! Room too warm for me personally.
As a solo female traveler I was delighted with the location as easy, safe access to walk to Waterfront, restaurants, etc. My room was large, nicely decorated and a view of table top mountain - comfortable too for an evening in. Had a great time in Cape Town.
Didn't bother me but the wifi is hit and miss, as it seemed to be everywhere. And when I was originally put in a single room rather than a double (my fault really for not producing my documentation and staff assuming I had single occupancy) I was quickly and easily changed and delighted with the second room.
Friendly staff, nice rooms (although a little small but for just sleeping perfect)
Internet was not always working
Great location for the waterfront, lots of restaurants 2 min walk away.
We booked a double but got 'up graded' to a family room, which consisted of two twin rooms separated by a porch area with the shower on one side and the toilet on the other. As we were on Honey moon one larger double room would have been much nicer but they didn't have any left.
Situated close to Water front, well equiped. Modern rooms (separate from the historical building). Good value for money
-good location to Waterfront -very modern rooms -parking nearby
No information about whats around you by the staff , my room was on the inside , felt like prison with almost no vew !!
Location of hotel - we could walk every where. Safety
The noise outside the room in the parking area next to the hotel - early morning 3 - 6 in early morning.
We were a group of 5 ladies each with our own rooms. Perfect room for 1 person. Rooms not huge but clean and very comfortable. We loved the lounges on each floor and as a group this worked very well for us. Location, location, location. Safe to walk to Green Point and the Water Front at night. Perfect for a group. Good value for money in that area.
We were put into smoking rooms even though we asked for non smoking.
Excellent friendly and helpful staff. Clean
The downlighting in the rooms is appalling due to the shadows on face when at a mirror, and generally too dark in the room. The bedside lights were poor. The bathroom door knob was virtually impossible to grasp and open - it should be a proper handle. Telephone wire very short. The practice of doubling the room rates for part of the week booked, is really not very friendly, especially if booked for the purpose of running a training course at the GSB lecture rooms. The Breakwater Lodge used to offer reasonably priced accommodation before Protea took it over.
