Not a bad hotel but there are limitations

Hotel is clean, nice, staff is friendly. Location is near town but need to do some walking. Quite deserted at night. Wifi is 300mb a day and only one device can be used at a time. Room is rather small and no fridge in there. Bathroom, sink and toilet are separated. However, bathroom has no lock and it's totally transparent. Good for couple but not with children. Travel adapter can be borrowed from the reception free. Carpark is R40 a night.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Take a cab to Mama Africa, a very popular place. You can order their Wild Game which consists of crocodile meat, springbok meat, Kedu, ostrich and Kedu and venison sausage. Nice meal and nice environment with live band.

Trendy comfortable rooms, inconsistent service

Room was what you'd expect for the price, which was around USD 150/night. The standard room we had didn't have much of a view but was very trendy. To compensate for bad service rendered, we were later upgraded to a bigger room with a view of Table Mountain but the room design was very standard. Housekeeping - some days, they gave us new tubes of toiletries, some days none. Some days, we had two bottles of drinking water, some days none at all. But to be fair, the staff was generally very nice and friendly.

Single person had a very good stay

I got a very good last minute deal through the "rates to go" web site. 5 nights for about 250 euros. I was more than impressed when I arrived. STaff courteous and helpful. Excellent sun lounge and small swimming pool on the first floor and another opposite the pool area offers a superb view of table mountain. The room I got was comfortable, chique and very clean. The only down side was there was nowhere to hang towels, a bit inconvenient when you get out of the shower. Nor was there a mirror over the dressing table to dry your hair at.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There is an excellent park about 10 minutes walk away on the other side of Kloof Street. You can go and sit in peace there and look at the birds and flowers. try tea and scones in the restaurant there.
