A week stay in Cape Town

Exceptional 10.0
Beautiful gardens and breakfasts
Fantastic views, breakfasts and attentive staff. Mountain view room was great, with a small secluded terrace off the bedroom. Rooms use euro plugs not the SA three pin. Grounds keepers are wonderful, worn the whole hotel lusciously planted in cacti and succulents.

Lovely hotel. Not really a guest house
Lovely sunny balcony with great views. Nice and warm in August. Breakfast extremely good. We will return!

Exceptional 10.0
Modern, clean and stylish
The room was beautifully decorated with a spacious modern bathroom! Amazing views of Lion's Head and the Twelve Apostles and a great terrace to enjoy the sun from after a busy day in Cape Town. Can't comment on breakfast, but there is a great coffee shop - Bootleggers - less than 5 mins walk away which had a great selection!

Hotel was pleasant in a good location with great views however staff were somewhat aloof & we had better service elsewhere.
