Lady Hamilton Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

good sized rooms on a quiet side street. Close to enough restaurants that you can walk to at night and feel safe. Beds are very comfortable and pillows are great. Internet in lobby only but many places to sit down. Cape Town is small enough that you can walk to most places from here. Excellent included buffet breakfast

This is indeed a 3 star hotel, very basic in every aspect, from the use of carpets, small cubicle shower, only 1 chair in the room, a/c working however not effective, food is OK...not much of a variety though, parking is dogdy and doesn't look secure at all. Staff are trying their best to provide a gud service.

Was only staying here one night but enjoyed it so much that we stayed another night. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was brilliant. The pool was great in the afternoon heat. A great place to cool down

Muy bien ubicado, en una linda area entre residencial y comercial, con todo lo necesario a mano. Los empleados del hotel muy calidos y dispuestos a ayudar, haciendote sentir a gusto y como en casa. A mejorar: wi - fi. Muchas gracias!! Great location, in a residencial - commercial area, where you can find all you need. The hotel employees as very helpfull and warm, making you feel like back home. Worried about guest's safety. Good advisors. Many thanks to you all!! Wi-fi connection can be improved.

Good location to be central. Grouting in the shower could do with some attention. Door into the bathroom didn't close properly. No lift and no one to help with bags up the stairs. Bar was very expensive. Food was okay. Shuttle service can be arranged at a fee.

Reasonably well located in town. Close to Company Gardens and street markets. Staff very welcoming and very helpful in responding to guest requests. Room was spacious, clean and well maintained. Bed comfortable. Not able to make tea coffee in room. Quiet for sleeping. Breakfast was basic but good in a pleasant dining room. Reasonable price for location. Travelled with tour group and others happy.

I had secure parking, always a problem in Gardens!. Wonderful helpful staff. Smiles all around! Great room with all amenities. Will be back! Right next to Kloof street, close to bus route. Meals are really great but limited wine list. You can actually walk from hotel to Gardens and Museum and inner city.

I stayed at the Lady Hamilton Hotel in November 2016. It's situated in Gardens in a residential road. The Lady Hamilton is an older hotel that seems to cater for the 'cost saver' tourist groups. Parking in the property cost and additional R50 per night, but it could be quite tricky with a large vehicle. My room was on the 3rd floor, accessible via the main stairwell - fortunately I only had an overnight bag. I accessed my room after a bit of a tussle with the lock and key, which needed a good dose of lubricant. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small and dated, with a toilet, hand-basin and shower - the shower door was a sliding glass door, which was in need of some maintenance. We opted to go out to eat for dinner so I can't comment on the buffet dinner that was about R170 per head. Breakfast was included in our rate. Breakfast was a buffet with the usual egg, bacon and toast options as well as some cereal options. The coffee and tea were the mass catering 'help yourself' variety - if you're looking for a good quality cappuccino to start your day, you'll need to find a coffee shop nearby.

Stayed at the Lady Hamilton almost two years ago for the first time and again in the beginning of this year (2017). The hotel itself has quite a few maintenance issues which you get the feel that as a three star hotel they have accepted the flaws and do not really wish to improve on it, which is sad cause it really is a nice hotel. Lovely pool, enjoyed the breakfast, excellent location!

food hygene is non existant, dangerous temporary ramps on which I almost broke arm and leg, fire hazards everywhere especially in dining room, noisy doors swinging too and fro, noisy guests shouting til one oclock in the morning despite complaints. Pillows that saw duty first in 1950. But of course it is cheap.
