World Class Pricing, less than world class service

by 10izboy on 07 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We had an extended family gathering here, taking over the whole property. It is an incredible property, with huge guest rooms, a wonderful swimming pool surrounded by beautiful grounds. The location was great, walk out the back through the garden gate and you are across the road from the ocean and a tidal pool. (One of our party got stung by a jelly fish in the tidal pool so we did not make use of it very much) If you want to feel like you are on the movie set of the Great Gatsby this is the ...

Telephonic Assistance!

by Aissa - Cape To... P on 18 Nov 2016 (Solo Traveller)

I just called to get some information on the hotels opinion of the safety of train rides from Cape Town to Kalk Bay and was very helpfully assisted with some very good information - practical and to the point. Very friendly. Many Thanks for taking the time to assist someone who was not even a guest!

decent hotel for short stay.

by Witteveen_12 on 19 Jan 2016 (Family Traveller)

Best points of this hotel are the views, backdrop and the garden with pool. i would not pick this place for a longer stay, mainly because the road between the hotel (on 50meters) and the sea; there is no nice beach close. breakfast was excellent, although service a bit erratic (one day great, one day chaos). good location to see the Cape nature park and visit some other spots; good value.
