            The staff were friendly and efficient.

            I expected a larger dstv option than MWeb.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Well-located hotel with good access to local beaches and Cape Town. Good facilities and lovely grounds

            Felt that staff could have been a little more attentive, especially around the pool area when ordering drinks, etc.

          • Single
            7.0

            all members of staff throughout the hotel were cheerful and charming, eager to help.

            For a hotel of this class it was ridiculous that one had to purchase a voucher of time/download for internet access. There was free wifi in the hotel lobby but for me this was a long walk from my room with my laptop and then taking it back again, and lack of privacy..the use of a voucher with a code was an old fashioned and cumbersome method of paying for access in one's room and I did not like it at all !! It detracted from the overall enjoyment of my stay and poor access for business emailing etc. caused a great deal of irritation... I ate many of my meals in the hotel dining room La Vigna but only 50% of the meals were good, very variable indeed from one occasion to another, although the staff were always pleasant and attentive.

            People were always very helpful and reaction to requests quick and effective.

            Being asked @ 11am when we are going to check out, even though there was a note stateing that checkout was at 5pm on Sundays.
