Enjoyable stay and I will return in 2018. Situated ideally near the VA Waterfront and most of Cape Town's attractions. The room was clean and tidy. Preparing breakfast for the Two Oceans runners was thoroughly appreciated.

We had a great stay, with the hotel being very central and easy to reach beaches. The shuttle to the Waterfront was also very helpful. The room was comfortable and serviced well. The breakfast was very tasty.

We reserved for ten days stay, through our travel agent a little unsure until when we arrived the hotel. We got a very clean and spacious room. Superb view. Best part of the hotel was it provides shuttle to and fro V&A waterfront. Easy accessible and available at the waterfront.

We enjoyed our stay and was welcomed by friendly and efficient staff on our arrival. We ran the Two Oceans Marathon and it was great to know that they also cater for those events by doing an early breakfast for the runners as well as having a shuttle service to the start and finish. Overall a great stay. Thank you!

We checked in at midnight but Mark who checked us in was amazing. He allowed me a late checkout since I am a member of the Tsogo sun loyalty program. He was so warm and welcoming. The rooms are amazing and worth the price. Breakfast does not have an enormous spread but is good. Definitely recommend this hotel next time...
