I found the hotel to be fine,

I found the hotel to be fine, in a great location situated just a 5 minute walk from both the Aquarium, the Waterfront,and thus all the top hotels, bars and restaurants associated with Cape Town. Due to this there is obviously a high security presence. Although I had read various reviews critical of this hotel, mainly due to the fact that the facilities are shared with a college, which also means that the restaurant/cafe is more like a student dining hall and with self-service. However, I didn't find this a problem and the food was adequate. I would definitely stay there again, especially if I was unable to pay the prices of the nearby hotels, which I am.

A convenient location for the

A convenient location for the Watefront and splendid views of Table Top and Signal Hill from breakfast terrace. Although rooms were quite basic for the price they were certainly more than adequate given the location. Staff were all extremely helpful and efficient - prompt delivery of phone messages and emails to room, together with asistance in locating nearest cinema. Only quibble was the price of breakfast!
