We really looked forward to end our stay in Cape Town with three nights at a luxury hotel with mostly great ratings on Tripadvisor, but unfortunately our stay was not as nice as expected. The first room we got smelled really bad from mold and the bathroom was a disaster with mold in the shower, broken tiles in the bathroom...

There is nothing u can talk bad about the hotel! The location is just brilliant! The staff is very friendly! The rooms are big enough and in a good condition! Maybe 2 things they should change: 1) coffee on the room is an insult for coffee drinker 2) the water in the shower is warm enough but not hot! :))...

The service was fantastic. The staff treated us like royalty! The breakfast was outstanding with an excellent selection of entrees and the quality of the food was exceptional. This hotel is conveniently located to restaurants and shops in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront area. The cost of staying at this hotel provided a tremendous value for the dollar. We would...

From the moment I arrived, I was not impressed with the staff at the front desk - and that did not change over my 4 night stay. I arrived very early due to an international flight, and did not expect my room to be ready. But the woman at the front seemed put out by my early arrival, and when...

I thought I had booked at the 'City Lodge Victoria and Alfred', but to my surprise they didn't know about my reservation at all. It took a while to figure out that I was actually booked for the Victory and Alfred hotel directly at the Waterfront (my mistake entirely, and one that I am pretty happy about in retrospect). The...

feels like home with the service of people who remember you! the view, the food, the atmosphere and especially the people that work there always makes this feel like less of a hotel and more of a welcoming place for peace and quiet

This hotel is a delight. It is in a very old building that was once used to store rope. The rooms are roomy and very nicely furnished. The bathroom is terrific with lots of space and deluxe in every way. The quality of everything in the bathroom is amazing. The room is very nice with a seating area with 3...

An excellent hotel right at the water front with every thing at a stones throw. The theme is classic but not 'fuddy Duddy". The rooms are clean and well maintained with beautiful views of the water front. The breakfast buffet does not include hot food and they were a bit slow in getting my hot breakfast out but I will...

We had a mountain view room. I could have simply sat in the room at stared at the view for the entire vacation and been completely happy. The service was good and the hotel location couldn't be better. I would stay here again.

We booked online but had problems with booking for bed and breakfast. We mentioned this at check in. James confirmed that our booking was for B & B. When we arrived for breakfast we were told that we had booked for Bed Only. When we tried to explain the problem to the breakfast hostess she basically ignored us and talked...
