    Fabulous

    Rooms were of a good size and very clean, Staff pleasant, and the location was good. The only negative comment I can make is that on 3 separate days I informed reception and housekeeping staff about 3 lightbulbs in our room not working. All promised to rectify the matter but we left the room with those bulbs still not working

    Reception warm and welcoming - free room upgrade. Beautiful room, lovely hotel right in the heart of Cape Town. This is a fabulous hotel - I have no complaints re the accommodation!

    The food is what let them down! The breakfast wasn't up to standard. We also had lunch in Mint - too many waiting staff hanging around not being helpful, food ok - expected better, no ambience.
