What an amazing hotel. Best location at the Waterfront. The staff were fantastic and extremely helpful. We really felt well looked after there, very personal - only has a very few rooms.

The beautiful garden and pool area were nice for us to relax after sightseeing. Our room was upstairs and had a huge balcony overlooking the waterfront.

Best choice at the Waterfront - stunning little hotel.

The best boutique hotel I have been to. The best service was available, we will definatelly be back!

Situated in the V&A area, the garden of the hotel was a little noisy, but the staff were very attentive and we enjoyed the best cocktails!

Our room was spacious and well decorated and had a good view of the V&A Waterfront.

I loved the personalized service of this magnificent hotel, close the the V&A waterfront with great restaurants.

The hotels lovely gardens which surround the outdoor swimming pool and bar area was great for relaxation which we really needed after our safari days in the bush.
