Great being close to the waterfront without paying an arm and a leg. Having a cocktail at the sundowner bar was fabulous where I met with other collegues of mine.

Staff was very helpful and hotel has good location between the V&A Waterfront and the city centre. We enjoyed making use of the small heated pool and gym at the hotel.

The hotel rooms are a bit outdated and could use a refreshment. But all was available what we needed for our stay.

Breakfast is very good at the City Lodge Waterfront. Rooms are clean and service is good.

The position is fantastic, but not for the view, but because you can easily and safely walk to the Waterfront. The hotel itself is a standard hotel, good but a bit bland.

To choose a room at the back of the hotel is better as it is a lot less noisy.

Good hotel with central location near Cape Town city centre and Waterfront. We enjoyed the nice breakfast. No dinners are available. Not too far away from the Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC). Good hotel for leisure and business.

Note: this hotel is NOT located at the actual V&A Waterfront, but one can walk to it within about 15 - 20 minutes.
