Great location...Cozy Room

The best thing about his hotel is the location, it is walking distance to all of the touristy spots down town. The rooms are a bit small and the restaurant is not worth mentioning, but i would stay again just for the location.

Great value

Location is in the centre of the city and close to all attractions. The red hop on and off bus tour is very close to hotel. The VA is a 30 minute walk from the hotel. The Taxi from the VA to the hotel cost 45R. The breakfast is excellent. The staff are very friendly. Overall i had a great stay in this hotel.

Wonderful value

Great breakfast and overall hotel dining. Prices quite reasonable by U.S. standards. Very helpful concierge too. Location is not too good--not walkable to V/A Waterfront or anywhere else. Must cab it. Windows in room had gaps in them and when the wind starts blowing, sounded like ghosts in the room. Attendant tried best to fix problem that evening.

Great value

Great breakfast, nice lobby and restaurants, rooms have been upgraded and are very nice, bed comfortable. Problem with airconditioner on first day/night. Hotel changed us to another room, but had the same problem there. Finally felt it kick in the following morning, but the weather was cooler, so not sure if this is always a problem or was fixed. The remaining nights were cool, so no further problems. Would stay there again.

Townhouse Hotel and Conference

Very pleased overall. The location was a bit hard to find, but this was overcome by the very helpful staff and excellent service and conditions overall. Upon my arrival, I had difficulty with the wireless internet. The assistant night mgr. went out of his way to help me and finally was able to get the IT tech on the phone who was able to fix the problem which turned out to be a server problem. I was quite impressed with this level of personal service. Restaurant was top notch and service excellent. Highly recommend this hotel!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

For a affordable and timely sightseeing option, take the red and blue on and off bus. If you only have a couple of days to see Cape Town this is the way to go. I highly recommend the blue bus since this route circles around Table Mtn and stops at the Botanical Gardens,two wineries and is a beautiful scenic drive along the coastline.

Modern hotel, centrally located

I was in Cape Town for 2 weeks for work at UCT. The hotel has all the modern amenities including free wifi (fast enough to video chat) and heated floors in the bathroom during the winter months. The bed and breakfast option was great and the food choices very good. Service throughout the hotel was impeccable! Its within walking distance to many local tourist activities and a short taxi ride to the Waterfront. For the rate I really should give 5 stars!

Great location

I was in Cape Town only for five days and I started with a helicopter tour (you must do it!), I also did the tours with the Red and Blue Buses. Stop #5 and #9 are very close to the hotel. Cape Point and Winelands are also great tours. Game Drive is also a good option if you haven't been to one (it's 200 km away from the town).
