Beautiful rooms in a restored historic home

Rooms here very rarely attract anything but praise from guests. The accommodation is consistently described as being of an excellent standard. Reviews indicate that you can expect your room to be spacious, beautifully decorated, well maintained and kitted out with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Guests have particularly enjoyed the balconies with views of the water as well as the beautiful historic home itself.

Good location near popular tourist attractions

The location here gets top marks from guests, with many particularly appreciative of the ease of access to the restaurants and attractions in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront as well as the views of Table Mountain in the distance. The hotel’s luxury shuttle service comes in handy for guests who wish to explore a little further afield.

Exceptional service from staff

The standard of service here appears to live up to the five-star rating of the property. Guests have been thoroughly impressed by the staff, describing the service as not only friendly and professional but also preemptive. It appears that the staff at this boutique hotel knows what you need before you do.

Negative Reviews

Occasional complaints of noise

If there’s a negative here, it’s that rooms are occasionally subject to some disturbance from the activities taking place in the bustling V&A Waterfront area. This proved to be disappointing to light sleepers.
