WAU WAU WAU...what a superb luxury hotel, right in the middle of Cape Town. With its beautiful garden one does not feel being in the middle city at all. The high tea is a not to be missed event when staying here. We made use of the spa as well and loved dining in the gourmet restaurant - absolutly delicious.
