Five star

Cheltenham, United Kingdom

We stayed here for nine nights and it certainly deserves its five stars although sometimes the service was slow. Staff were very good and attentive and were helpful. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

Not up to previous standards

Greater London, United Kingdom

Over the last 20 years this has been my destination of choice in Cape Town and it still commands a great location and has vast numbers of excellent staff. Our experience this year was a number of areas were tired and management were ineffective and invisible as it started with a poor check in where our requirements had been ignored and took some time to resolve. Our room,502, one of the hotels best where a number of faults existed including a shower door which never closed properly flooding the bathroom every day and electrical charging points which were so poorly fitting I didn’t have the confidence to use them.Our final bill was wrong as another guests drinks had been charged to our room and despite we were spending several thousand pounds on our stay nothing was done to resolve the issue so after 8 visits to Cape Town it’s time to find a new 5 star hotel.
