There was a problem with internet access from our room. The room got a bit warm at night, but we were able to open the window.
Helpful, courteous staff (We had difficulties gaining internet access and went to reception. They went out of their way to solve the problem.) Excellent location for tourists. Local cafes, shopping, easy access to tourist buses, Robben Island ferry.

Breakfast is not quite in line with the rest of the hotel, not that it is bad but there could be more choice. The front desk insisted that we paid with the credit card used for the deposit, which annoyed us because we prefer using our debit card instead.
Location right on the V&A Waterfront, but on a quiet back street so no noise at all. Very close to the tourist office and the hop-on-hop-off main stop. Great rooms, very confy bed. The price is quite accessible for the value.

Having to pay for 3 nights when I was there for 2 nights. I think their booking policy should not be cast in stone

How cold the swimming pool was.

Although the twin beds are a reasonable size, the depth of the mattress requires a larger sheet, so that it doesn't become untucked straight away. Shaver outlet buzzes continuously.
Convenient location, friendly, helpful & well-trained staff. Great breakfasts.

Very noisy rooms on the Portswood Road side. Ask not to be put on that side.
Really good location, so central to V & A waterfront, very close to the hop on hop off bus.

free Internet had quota of 600MB per day, I believe that's not necessary in this day of age
everything was good about this hotel, I chose this property due to its proximity to the waterfront.... service and quality of rooms exceeded my exceptions.
