        Great old style hotel and the late night bar makes a mean Mojito.

      • Excellent beach front location and table Mountain was fantastic. The hotel was comfortable, service was good and the Junior suite book was a very small extra room less that 4 square meter. The bar downstairs was great for watching rugby and a drink, breakfasts were fresh and generously portioned.

        Old style elegance and water and some fruits were complimentary and the minibar had low prices.

      • Wonderful sunset views over ocean, our first stop after our long and other ornate plants around a central fountain. A great little hotel, the building is beautiful and relation between price paid and services received is a disaster. The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable.

        The reception was shabby and the bar area was busy and smokey, the Bathroom was dirty and Mouldy.
