Dining

The Set restaurant
It serves a delicious buffet breakfast between 06:30 and 10:30, a la carte lunches and dinner in modern stainless steel, brick and marble-topped surroundings staged underneath genuine parcam lights and movie cameras.
The Out of Africa lounge
It is based on a Kenyan gentleman's cigar lounge which is set in the plains of the Masai Mara and is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring the Mother City, or to meet and converse with friends, family and colleagues alike.
The Beach House,
It is a uniquely conceptualised 'Californian-style' beach house coffee bar which is designed to add yet another 'theme' to the public area of the hotel. This is a simple yet classy, relaxed yet sophisticated beach house coffee bar, with its own delectable menu specialising in a range of salads, pastas, fresh seafood, healthy sandwiches and wraps. With a beautifully designed fireplace for those cold winter nights and a tempting cocktail menu to quench your thirst in the heat of a summer - this is most certainly a theme to be seen!

Great hotel for the price

Clean, large rooms, within walkable distance to the V&A Waterfront and has a restaurant, pool and free wi-fi. Also close to De Waterkant, the gay district in Cape Town, which is a plus if that's your scene, and Greenside and the Cape Town Stadium if that's your scene. They have a complimentary shuttle to the Waterfront at night, but not at the most convenient times. Downsides are that the restaurant isn't great and the wi-fi is intermittent. And if you want to make it to the CBD, it is a bit of a trek. But overall, great value for what you get. I'd recommend.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Unlike most cities, I would highly recommend the Citysightseeing buses here in Cape Town. THey give you a fantastic intro to the city, and if you book online, it's only R120 (~$15) for a day pass.

Central

We found the hotel in a good location surrounded by first restaurants and bars and far enough away from the main attractions to be quiet but close enough to go to when we wanted. The staff were superb and we have stayed in 5* hotels before so we are able to make the comparison.

Incredible Service!

There was a slight snafu with my reservation, so the hotel instantly upgraded my room to a superior. The food at breakfast and room service is wonderful and very reasonably-priced. It's also within walking distance to St. George's Plaza and the Waterfront. The best part, though, is how incredibly friendly the staff was throughout my stay, I can't wait to go back.
