Excellent Value for Money

The hotel is an easy 15 minutes walk to the main Camps Bay restaurants. The hotel is clean and the staff very helpful and honest. I clearly dropped my wallet while returning from a night out and I received a phone call next morning telling me my wallet had been found and handed in by the night staff. We had a good experience and would not hesitate to return. Overall a good holiday hotel.
