Wonderful.

Hotel slightly spoilt by the fact that the only place to get a drink after sundown was a smoky smelling bar. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. This hotel is the place to stay if you are in Cape Town.

Angenehmes Hotel

Anfang Dezember resp. der Hochsaison war es relativ ruhig im Hotel. Mit Sicherheit war das auch auf den sehr starken saisontypischen Wind zurückzuführen. Die gesamte Anlage war nur zu einem Drittel ausgelastet und das Personal beschäftigte sich teilweise auch mit Unterhaltsarbeiten. Das Zimmer (Poolsicht), der Service sowie die Bedienung, entsprechen dem eines Fünfsternehauses. An den Wochenenden ist der Stand und die Hauptstrasse vor dem Hotel sehr belebt, was man vor allem im Poolbreich sehr gut mitverfolgen kann.
