Length Of Stay 2 weeks
Location City Center area of Cape Town
Restaurants Breakfast service was outstanding, with a large buffet including full English breakfast, cereals, yogurts, fruit and great breads. This was served in a huge dining room that was typically full. There was also a cozy little pub downstairs (Kelsey’s Grill) that served local beers and had pretty good food, fish and chips, snacks, etc.
Size 416 rooms
Year Opened-Renovated N/A
Rooms My room included standard hotel furnishings, with perhaps slightly nicer than normal taste in decor than one might expect. The view from my room was attractive.
Facilities The hotel had a pool, workout room with decent cardio equipment and weights, rental cars available and a small business center for faxing, email, etc. Also available were meeting rooms, conference rooms and a board room.
Pool And-Or Beach The outdoor pool was clean and pleasant though crowded. There were a fair number of children and guests present for the relatively small size.
There did appear to be a large number of tour groups coming and going at the hotel, so one day it was full and the next almost empty. It was a popular hotel and typically pretty busy at breakfast. In spite of this, the service was good and they maintained high quality throughout.
Date Of Review April 2000
Ease Of Reserving A Room Reserved by local agent
Overall Service The quality of service was quite good, the staff friendly and helpful. On short notice, they arranged reservations at La colombe restaurant and transportation with driver. They also helped me find the nearest post office, supplies to wrap a package I was sending and power adapters for the slightly unusual South African power outlets.
