    We found this hotel really good. Staff were excellent and couldnt do enough for you. All the staff at Reception including the customer liason lady who helped us a good deal when I had an accident there and taxi driver/s who helped no end. Breakfast was great and hotel in lovely central position. Room service good and room comfortable and very clean, towels everyday, beds made up, beds made down for night.

    Friendly staff & excellent food. Location close to bus routes around Cape Town.

    The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Cape Town. Secure parking (extra charge) is provided at an adjacent car park. A mini fridge in the clean and well-appointed room is another useful touch. An excellent breakfast is provided in the restaurant that has a pleasing ambience.

    The one blemish was receivng an unwelcome wake-up call that I did not request.

    Quietness and Location of the hotel. Very close to the centre and to "hop-on- off" bus which is a very good and safe way to go around town. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Very nice and comfortable room with a nice view to Table Mountain. Very nice and opened dining room.Very nice restaurant with vey good breakfast

    Dinner menus are very trendy like "nouvelle cuisine" but repeated the sane at least twice in consecutive days. Wine per glass very expensive /sometimes 2/3 of full course menu). On a windy night (the last in town) the window opened several times waking me up. I informed the reception on my way out. I was answered: well this is a windy town and we advice customers not to open windows... Not very helpful indeed!

    The quiet and spacious room.

    Having only a duvet leaves one too hot.

    The Hotel is centrally located in CBD, not the best place if you're a tourist, as there is not much to do after 6pm. The room was clean and breakfast was satisfactory. I was not blown away by this hotel, and most likely would not stay here again. Stay closer to V&A Waterfront, Cape Quarter, Waterkant, Green point or Seaport. These areas are much nicer and more tourist-orientated. The Townhouse would be ideal for the business minded person due to its location in CBD.

    The size of my room was most uncomfortable. I did not have enough room to open my luggage. Extremely small and didn't think it was legal to have rooms his small. The entire room was the size of a bathroom. Breakfast was satisfactory, however it was the same same same every morning. It would be nice to have something different added every day.

    The Restaurant is excellent

    Rooms ending with x10 are definetely to small for a hotel room(even for single traveller) and they are directly next to elevator which means additional noise. Very good is the free acces to Wifi in the room!

  • Single
    10.0

    Comfortable, convenient, efficient, minimum fuss.

    This is not a complaint, but I must mention that the lift next to Room 710 (where I was staying) is incredibly noisy - in desperate need of a service?

    the location of the hotel is what i liked best. it was my first time in that area and it was easy to get by. the meter taxis arranged by the staff, but also being able to make use of the minibus taxi was great since i did not have my own transport.

  • Single

    The Staff were friendly and amazing. Its food and dining was great. The Hotel is ideally situated in City Bowl for Business and for cyclists partaking in the biggest timed cycle challenge in the world namely the Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in March.

    Friendly, comfortable, clean and professional. Great breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    Very good breakfast

    We were charged the full daily rate for parking our hire overnight. The charges should have been a lot less.

  • Older travelers

    We had a 10th floor room with a wonderful view: Table Mountain!

    The Townhouse has helpful friendly staff. It is located just around the corner from St Georges Cathedral next to the Companys Gardens and down the road to the Grand Place (The Fort) where you can pick up the Red Tour Bus for transport around the City. For its location it is also quiet in the evenings.
