The location is just perfect - close to the Waterfront's best bars, shopping and the new Springbok Experience
Ground floor suite a bit noisy at night.
The Staff were all extremely helpful, especially when I needed to scan some documents and email them to Johannesburg, it was done with the minimum of fuss and promptly. My room had everything I needed and was very comfortable, I loved the close proximity to the waterfront, just a short walk away. Breakfast was served in such pleasant surroundings and although not as grand as some of the bigger hotels, there was a good variety on offer and best of all the tea was HOT.
Nothing bad to say, the hotel is a gem.
Room was lovely
Had to ask for music to be turned down at 1 am
We didn't like being locked out of our room 3consecutive days due to the key card not functioning.
Location is ok and is the only reason to stay in this pretty expensive Standard Hotel
only one not well maintained elevator available, did not stop in the parking area
The warmth and willingness of the staff make all the difference. I liked the fact that you could take advantage of breakfast at the neighbouring Commodore Hotel. The pool was lovely.
Great location, charming hotel, clean, good value for money.
Staff at reception pushing to hire one of their private cars for airport transfer - more expensive than a regular taxi. In fact, it was the same car/driver, it is just they get a commission with the higher rate. Small amount - but never pleasant to be ripped-off by hotel staff.
very convenient; could walk into waterfront & town centre area; staff in bat helpful & friendly
slightly bland décor; building is an old prison but the refurb has left it characterless
Old appliances in the rooms, fridge as well as aircon were too loud when switched on. To avoid the noise of the aircon because it was at night I would have to open the window which meant I would have to listen to the conversation of the people sitting at the foyer. I could also here the phone at reception ringing from my room
Room 102, close to the foyer. Lovely room with spotless facilities. Friendly,helpful staff.
Fairly soulless especially in the evenings. Tinned fruit at breakfast. WiFi not consistent and staff unable to rectify non-connection.
The rooms are very beautiful, staff very friendly.
I didn't like the air con. I think they should be replaced with modern ones. It was very hot in the room and the air con failed to cool the room.
Location close to the Cape Town Conference Convention Centre
Housekeeping staf knocked on the doors too early in the morning and entered the room more than once while we were inside.
Cheerful and helpful staff
only issue, the normal sout Africa latency with internet
Location is fantastic as you have walking access to the whole V&A waterfront in minutes
Very noisy A/C unit in the room we had. Couldn't sleep with it on.
NEW RENOVATION WAS WELL DONE
AIRCONDITIONER WAS TOO NOISY CANT WATCH TV OR SLEEP WITH AIRCON ON.
The location and most of the staff
Slow service, overly expensive
Some staff could be more helpful
The check in staff was exceptionally unfriendly except for the lady when we check out They are most definitely giving the Hotel a very bad first impression
The location is great , just a minute from the v&a waterfront and citysightseeing and myciti bus stops. Very clean , helpful friendly staff and nice modern rooms
The only bad thing I can say is that wifi is slightly limited to 600mb a day and is a little slow. A very minor quibble and I think is common in SA
Location Sister Coomodore hotel next door much better
Staff not friendly Not good value Poor service
I could just accommodate the staff who do turndown in the evening cause they can be very disturbing.It was Saturday27th when I had this very hard knock and I responded by asking her/him to come in there was no response I had to go to the door to see who was there.One of the ladies was standing outside and she said she did not come in because she was still talking to her supervisor and why did she knock if she was not ready to come in?When she was done then she knocked and came in and did what she wanted to do and left.Another knock as hard as the previous one this time it was the supervisor not the one she was talking to another one.I did raise my complaint to her.They saw it very unusual that I was on my own if that had anything to do with them.If only they could learn to mind their own businesses life would be much easier for your customers.
recently redecorated rooms, not big but with every comfort one needs. Very friendly and helpful staff.
