Bit disappointed after having been there a couple of years ago.

The hotel is rated as a 4 star - which can't be farther from the truth - a 2 star max. The hotel is filthy; the carpets haven't seen a vacuum cleaner for a long time! The positive about the hotel is the nearness to the seaside front with a free shuttle service.

Room was comfortable, quiet, and warm. It provided transportation to the waterfront, but getting a ride back was often troubling to coordinate. Breakfast buffet was crowded with tour groups. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed a lovely family room. There are no good views to speak of, but the central location and good value make up for it. Minutes away from Artscape and the V and A waterfront. Good breakfast and close to restaurants and takeaways. Very comfortable beds and pillows. The mini fridge was a bonus. There is a free shuttle to the...

This is my fifth stay at this hotel. It is a bit weary worn, but is undergoing refurbishment bit by bit. The rooms are large but do not have double glazing. One half of the building has acceptable views of Table Mountain. The staff are very polite and genuinely friendly. On the second floor is restaurant that you can get...

The staff really redeems this hotel. Everybody was so friendly. The breakfast spread is large and varied, should satisfy all palates. Rooms are spacious. Bottled water is provided only once during your stay... 2 small bottles. Free water available in the lobby. Burger king is just next door. WI fi is good and free but available only in the lobby

Not the greatest place to stay but has awesome location, polite staff and awesome food. It's not a comfortable hotel but good for backpackers and group tours. The place is dated but in working order and has a prayer room. The restaurant is halaal and clean. Has good wifi and business facilities, not a luxury hotel.

How dissappointing. This place is dirty. The food although suppose to be halal is terrible. Cold tasteless and really not nicely presented. It is like nobody cares as to what is happening. Been there before about a year ago but this time around really not impressed.
