I spent about three days here, and my family and I had a great time. Immediately the staff was helpful got our bags and were genuinely nice. The prices are too cheap for the quality of service they provide. The food was extremely good, especially the continental breakfast. There is a gym and a pool, that is rarely ever crowded. Also if possible, please enjoy the spa while you are there great staff, even better care. I wish I could personally thank each of the staff one more time. Thank you for a great end to a great vacation.

Nice classic restaurant within walking distance to Bo-Kaap. We had a room with a view of Table Mountain. Nice clean rooms. This Indian hotel chain, so there are items from Indian cuisine for breakfast. Unfortunately, this hotel did not have the best breakfast. There are different places nearby, I think you can have a tastier meal there, if it is important to you
