We stayed 5 nights at the President Hotel. Our rooms had views of the mountains and were comfortable and spacious but definitely not as clean as they should have been. There was a fridge and microwave in the room but no plates or cutlery. On the plus side, the location was great as there were supermarkets, restaurants, and shopping within...

Second time at this hotel and it's just great!! Very comfy bed clean and most importantly SILENCE... the pool is freaking amazing fresh water and the drinks are cheap! Very close to the sea and there's the main road with shopping center and restaurants to enjoy some dinner or lunch.

I was a bit hesitant about the President since it is not a 5-star hotel, but we were very positively surprised by the hotel. The room size was great for our family of 4, and the location was outstanding. Staff were generally friendly. The hotel is excellent value for money and we would happily stay there again. The gym was...

My overall experience at this hotel on this trip can only be rated as more than acceptable. The room stayed in gave an excellent view of Lions Head. The location of the hotel to the beach front and all public conveniences (bus routes, shops, eating places, etc) cannot be faulted.

It was a very nice trip to Kapstadt. The Hotel was also very nice and friendly. It was our first time in Kapstadt and we come back perhaps next year. What I missed was a German TV-Programm. All other things was very good!

The location in Bantry Bay is an ideal spot in Cape Town, close to Camps Beach area and not too far from V&A Waterfront and the centre of town. Rooms are spacious with a huge bed and a desk (although mine was missing a chair) and include tea/coffee, fridge, microwave and television. Wifi is included up to 500mb free and...

The hotel is well located close to all the amenities and restaurants that Bantry bay has to offer yet also only a bus ride into either Capetown or Camps bay. The reception areas are clean and bright but perhaps a bit on the dull side but the outside pool area is pleasant and welcoming with a nice sized pool. The...
