                    A great hotel in a quiet but central area of Cape Town. The room was very clean and spacious. The staff were amazing! Very friendly and helpful! They do a very nice buffet breakfast which was also included in the price of my room and they also have a bar. Highly recommended!

                    The location and convenience is perfect. The honesty of the staff members in respect of what the hotel offers and what is not available is so refreshing in this industry. They handle special requests very well, including my request for a 4h00 breakfast and early check in was absolutely fantastic. Thanks to Ntswaki and the Chef for the early breakfast.

                    There is nothing to complain about. The hotel offers honest and transparent value for money without any empty promises or expectations

                    A strange thing happened when I arrived they sold my room to summone else then they arranged for for a hotel next door which wasn't bad

                    Parking was horrendous. Booked and paid upfront yet on one of the nights there was no available parking

                    I like the close proximaty to my young adult sons (they live right next to the hotel). Very convenient.

                    I was quite disappointed to get back to the hotel after an entire day out sight-seeing that the room was not cleaned; no cleaning service! However, the Manager on duty was very apologetic and helpful. We were planning to extend our stay for two more nights but after this experience we left and went to stay at the Hollow on the Square Hotel (next to The New Tulbagh Hotel).

                    There have been some improvements made( revamps) and the hotel is looking good but there is still more room for improvements.

                    They need to replace the furniture in the rooms e.g the dressingtable/desk is old and spoilt. They also need to have an abundance of Bathroom towels available.

                    The hotel staff was friendly, my room was very spacious. I loved the cleanliness of the hotel. I will definitely stay there again & highly recommend it.

                    The room was very spacious and the breakfast was really good.

                    The shower water takes ages to get warm, if at all, and the shower didn't drain away very quickly. The bed was old and you could feel the springs.

                    The location, friendliness of the staff and comfort of the room. Nice and spaceous with a great bathroom.

                    The fire alarm kept on going off from 1 am till about 6am. So did not get a good nights sleep. Staff at the time did not sort out the problem.

                    Location near Artscape. Located in same courtyard as more expensive hotel. If you like to walk, the waterfront as well as Long street are accessible. Mycity bus stop is near. Wonderful breakfast was included.

                    I did not feel safe walking at night since the area is deserted. I did walk back from the Opera one night alone with no problems. WiFi not free and expensive to buy access.

                    The hotel has much going for it in terms of location, reasonable pricing (especially on-line booking), old hotel charm/atmosphere, friendly staff, great breakfast menu, etc.

                    1.There was no hot water for showering on Saturday evening and Monday morning. 2.Inadequate number of parking bays 3.Lift broke down – will rather use stairs in future as the lift is old and appears unreliable 4.Prices in the bar are unreasonable e.g. a bottle of still water costs R15 (R5 in most shops) and tin of cool drink costs R15. 5.Pest control should not be neglected i.e. fleas and cockroaches were encountered
