Not worth the money

Nice hotel but not worth the money. I was expecting a top 5 star experience, but this hotel did not give me that. We stayed at other places in Cape Town that were cheaper and better.

Excellent hotel & service

One of the best hotels i have ever stayed at! Staff were wonderful and helpful. I stayed in an Island Suite, which was nicely secluded and ideal for a luxury break. Would definitely go back over and over again! Spa facilities are amazing too.
