Meeting facilities

Meeting Info
The Hotel's Conference rooms at The Ambassador Hotel offer views of the ocean and can be divided into four facilities catering from 10 to 80 guests. Tailor-made to suit your needs, the facilities are amongst the most popular in town.

Dining

Salt Restaurant
Commanding a breathtaking position in Bantry Bay, Salt is an all-round sensory experience. Floor to ceiling glass windows stretch the length of the restaurant, unfolding to reveal the fresh seabreeze and sounds of the crashing waves below. Distinguished by, impeccable service and classic, contemporary dcor, salt serves simple, approachable, honest food in an easy-dining atmosphere, complemented by an extensive wine list of 70 wines, all available by the glass.
Salt Deli
Salt Deli serves classic deli fare and great breakfasts - like eggs Benedict and cream cheese and salmon bagels - in a relaxed atmosphere.There is a very strong focus on quality. We source the best quality food and ingredients available, and prefer to use South African suppliers. Salt Deli's retail section is a favourite shopping place for hotel guests and locals alike, with 80% of the products sold being South African and completely unique. Shoppers enjoy a wide selection of olive oils and grape vinegars, salad dressings and preserves. There are also flavoured salts and many other well known deli ranges. Olivier says his aim is to showcase South African niche producers that produce international standard products.
Salt Vodka Bar
There isn't a vodka bar in Cape Town and we felt the concept would perfectly complement the branding of Salt - both are elemental, clean products. Here guests can relax in the sophisticated lounge and enjoy a choice of 30 premium brand vodkas, served neat or as a colourful cocktail, and accompanied by delectable tapas from Salt Deli. The walk-in champagne fridge also has a choice of 30 bubblies - half local, half French - all available by the glass. To complete the hedonistic experience are panoramic views of the moody Atlantic - perfectly reflecting the uncluttered, free flowing essence of the Ambassador Hotel, Salt Restaurant, Deli and Vodka Bar. It just doesn't get much better.

Good location, good website, but not the promise

We chose the Ambassador after we viewed their website. The hotel seemed to be exclusive with a great views from the restaurant and deck. What the website shows, and what one gets is not the same. the deck is in serious need of help and not attractive at all as per the website images. The elevators and restaurant was not working when we arrived due to upgrades. Reality is that this hotel has the potential, but I have seen and been at better at a better evening rate.

Hard to beat, but you must enjoy the sound of waves crashing

With the South Atlantic roaring underneath, it is hard to beat the location of this hotel which sits right above the coast. My only quarrel was with their plumbing. The water pressure was insufficient, and the water took many minutes to heat up. The beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay are within walking distance. Restaurant excellent and breakfast adequate. Friendly, efficient staff.
