    The staff was really helpfull and friendly and tried to accomodate you as much as possible. The veiws from the hotel is stunning as well as its location, ~ verry well located, specially if you not familliar with the surroundings.- Near everything you need. And i felt safe all the time, as i walked around alot, ~ as its a good way to get to know your surroundings.. The breakfast would also satisfy the most fuzzy guest, good and tasty!

    They couldnt book me in earlier as requested, and when i did return to the hotel at 16h00 to be booked in, the room they gave me was as the previous guests have left it, dirty, full of smoke, with beds unmade and litter all over the floor. Went to report it immediately, as i was tired and not impressed. Dorothy, the receptionist was extremely helpfull, and appologetic and relocated me to a room of my choice which i totally appreciated. The bathrooms seriously need upgrading though!! And the airconditioning did work either, it was very cold and windy for 2 days, which was frustrating as i dint feel like moving to another room again.They should up the general maintenence of the rooms, and make sure everything is in perfect working order!

    The room is quite big.

    The bathroom is very small and without ventilation. When we arrived they put us in a floor with wet paint and a very bad smell. I asked for an upgrade to a suite and they didn't care. The good thing was we change for another floor. The photos od the rooms are better than the room itself. The breakfast has a lot of options but the scramble eggs were cold and the quality of the croissants is terrible.

    the view from the room was amazing

    thought the hotel was starting to look quite old and could do with a total refurbishment

    I enjoyed and wish to come back with my children.The food is divine pass my gratitude to the kitchen staff.

    Easily accessible from the airport. 10minutes to the v&a waterfront.Its centrally located.I Love the rotating top restuarant I felt like on top of the table mountain, beautiful views and the music entertainment Keep it up!.

    Great value for the money. Nice, clean room was perfect as a home base while exploring Cape Town. The breakfast consisted of a very large buffet that did not become boring over nine days. Hotel staff was very nice, both the hop on-hop off bus stop and the municipal bus are short walks from the hotel, an Avis rent a car office is located next door, numerous restaurants are within a five minute walk, and you are two blocks from the ocean. Our room was on the 15th floor with a beautiful view of the ocean, new stadium and mountains. Plenty of hot water and great water pressure. The revolving restaurant at the hotel provided a first class meal with beautiful views of the city. The deluxe room was renovated with a comfortable bed.

    Friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to help and make you feel welcome. Location of the hotel was a 20 minute walk to the city centre or the V&A waterfront. Great selection of food for breakfast every morning. Great revolving resturant on the 21st floor giving a panoramic view of Cape Town and the surrounding area as well as excellent food, a "must do" during your stay. Access to a quiet air conditioned members lounge to get time to catch up every day. Great pool area with good sun all day, always a good supply of clean towels. Happy hour in the bar every day at teatime was a regular stop.

    Hotel is dated and in need of refurbishment which seems to be ongoing, but is a good value 3 star hotel in a great location. Many of the fixtures and fitting such as sinks, baths, plugs are falling apart but maintenance staff are quick to respond to any problems. Expensive parking if you have a car, 50ZAR per day adds up quickly during the week and to be honest the car would probably be safe enough in the surrounding side streets.

    For the small difference in price it is well worth upgrading to a superior room. The views are spectacular and you have access to the business lounge which is a wonderful facility with computer and printer and free tea, coffee and water. You have to pay R50 for internet access which is not unreasonable but I think it should be mentioned and normally it would be included in the room rate. The revolving restaurant is beautiful.

    Although Sky TV was on in reception and the Business Class Lounge, no satellite TV was available in the rooms which I think is poor in this day and age. The bathrooms need upgrading

    Although we have booked a shuttle there was none to fetch us. It cause problems and we only arrived at the hotel close to midnight. That first impression was not so good. Even when I phoned them, they did not offer anything in return or promised to make up for it.

    I love the view and the breakfast was amazing. The destination is also perfect.

    I the Ritz hotel is not up to standard anymore the bedding had marks on and the coach in the room when we wanted to lie on it to watch tv was totally torn and disgusting. I expected much more. The service is okay but nobody really cares about you you have to ask for everything. A lot of people and foreigners is just sitting around in the lounge which totally does not give a good image. I am worried because we are 3 ladies that is booked there and with all the men hanging around there it looks like a drug infested place as I actually saw a lady and a guy doing a transaction that looked very illegal to me.

    the hotel staff is exceptionally friendly and courteous.

    very bad crowd at the hotel and i felt quiet unsafe on the property.

    Completely stupid that the revolving restaurant which is completely empty at sunset from 5 to 7pm does not let people sit up there and have a drink. Instead you have to use the bar which has almost no view.

    The special rate and the restaurant.

    The rooms are not airconditioned, wash basin was cracked, no Afrikaans on TV channels.
