We had a nice view of the table mountain, the staff was great, employees were great too, would definitely come back. Good location as well next to the shops, you actually get anything by the shops nearby.

he room was basic and in need of some TLC. We had booked for 6 nights but the booking had been done as a 4 and a 2 nights we were told we would have to change rooms for the last two nights but spoke to reception who rearranged for us. Toiletries in the room are not topped up and alarm calls don't always happen we complained about the lack of a booked alarm call and the next day they came and knocked on the door. Breakfast has most tables reserved for large groups and you are not allowed on these tables for the whole period of breakfast, this only leaves a few tables for individual travelers and often you cant find one. The staff are unhelpful shrug their shoulders and just tell you to wait until you can get a table but with no proper system for queuing this is a chase across the restaurant. They have an egg station but they will serve people who go straight to the front of the queue so this becomes a case of pushing your way to get served. They only have a set amount of food so the choice gets limited the later you arrive. The problems at breakfast put us off trying other meals at the hotel.

Really tasty meals at the buffet, doesnt matter for what meal.Nice views. They have on the top a sauna, you can see the table mountain and lions head from there. The hotel is not far away from city center and you just need about15min walking to the Waterfront. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but they are small and you can hear everything. At night could get noisy due to being next to Long street.

The hotel is lovely and the rooms and food were up to standard but my overall experience was ruined by the staff. They were rude, unfriendly and didn’t really seem all too concerned with solving the issues I had presented to them. My checkout experience was a nightmare and I would recommend you try and not spend outside your room cost because settling bills was close to impossible with their staff.

Hotel were need and tidy,staff were very much helpful ive like the location of the Hotel coz I could walk to wherever I want to be in Town I felt safe would suggest this Hotel to anyone,keep up with your Thursday's entertainment at the Restaurant I really enjoyed it.

Asked for Sundance, he will make sure for a problem free stay. Treat guest like family,you feel at home and safe. Sundance reason for my many visits. If not for him, it would not be the same . See you on my nrxy visist , Sundance..

A good experience from start to finish, room very clean but a huge L shaped desk dominated the room. Breakfast very good lots of choice and good value. Location was fantastic making it easy to get around. Would stay here again when in Cape Town.

Delicious food (breakfast) love the varieties each day. Walking distance to Cape town convention center makes it on top of list with affordable price. Will choose Strand Tower hotel again for family trip

I had a week stay in the Strand Towers. The hotel was awesome and staff really friendly. I loved the Piano man playing in the morning, and the buffet breakfast was always a great start to the day! Thanks and well done.

Huge hotel situated at very convenient point of city . Good connectivity and friendly staff . All the basic needs of traveler is available in the hotel as well once you step out of the property. Good spread of breakfast with soft piano player Brian .
