Fair 4.0
Nice views and not more
We stayed for 4 nights. As the property had such high review scores we expected a 5 star property. We had been staying at guest houses around cape town for the previous weeks and this was a disappointment relative to the other places we stayed such as Cape Cadogan. When we arrived our room was a disappointment. It was a Mountain View room which was really a main road view and was noisy from traffic and small. It was not as per the pictures. There was also no bottled water provided in the room throughout the stay which considering we can’t drink the tap water is unacceptable. Facilities like the ironing board and iron were poor quality and the towels and robes weren’t changed enough. There was no turn down service. The two managers running the place sat in the kitchen all day which is awkward for guests. There didn’t seem to be many staff around at all and those that were didn’t really speak or engage with guests. One morning there was no one at breakfast to take our orders. We also had to ask to have the pool opened as it was covered. The pool area was very small and could only comfortably fit 4 people despite the capacity of the place being 12 I estimate. One day we had to go to the beach and pay for beds as none were available at the pool. Overall a disappointing stay.

Somewhere to stay with the wow factor
If you are looking for something with the wow factor this is it! The view from the Atlantic suite is amazing, close to the sea with views of Lions head, watch the sun set from the balconies hot tub. The service is great, nothing is too much trouble. Just returned home from our 3rd visit, we are already planning to go back!

Couldn't recommend it any higher!
Hotel was amazing, staff were so friendly and accommodating, location was perfect - 10 minute stroll into Camps Bay with beautiful views whilst you eat breakfast

Good 6.0
Could be a stunning place to stay, but it is not super clean, art work is poor, feeling is of a semi-abandoned gorgeous contemporary home that could, with little effort, be made to be utterly stunning and superior with better on-site management and focus on details. Owner are absentee and it shows.

Honeymoon in Cape Town
My wife and I stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our honeymoon in Cape Town. This hotel was amazing. The room in absolutely incredible. The balcony in enormous with a nice hot tub on it and the view is stunning. The service here is first class. We had a late flight in and they had no problem accommodating a late check in for us. We loved the honor bar and the breakfast was excellent. Next time we are in Cape Town we will be staying here again in the same room.
