We stayed in this hotel over Easter. It was our third visit and sadly not our best visit. Years gone by this used to be really good but this time around it felt run down. Let me not get into details but the ragged towels (even when replaced) were inexcusable. On the bright side this is still the best location...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Very old hotel and also a museum with old memorabilia. It's very rustic so if you want 5* don't stay here! All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We were booked into room 13, which was very quirky with a bamboo, unusually shaped ceiling. We had a fantastic dinner in the...

This hotel is very different that he usual modern clean and clinical experience. Their decor just tell you the ambiance is old school with lost of childhood memories awakened by their collection of memorabilia. Cleverly decorated to not clutter but to focus you on the different historical events. The meal was great and recommended. The view of the bay is...

Modernized rooms in an historic hotel located on the shores of Langebaan lagoon. Excellent food, helpful and kind and very hardworking staff. Our stay here was so relaxing. Lovely pool, billiards room, library and of course a great place to enjoy sundowners! Low staff levels one night resulted in a longer than usual wait for dinner. However, the excellent staff...

I have not stayed over as I'm a local but what I can say is that every single time I have been there for a meal or just a latte on the stoep the service was appalling where I had to physically go and place my own drinks order inside or wait forever for a menu and eventually for the...

We booked last minute on Expedia expecting a double room in the main building with the old world charm. A cosy room on our way through to Cape Town. After taking time to locate our booking I was informed our room was unavailable, we also had to inform the hotel who and how much to pay for the room. Not...
