              We have been staying at the Mansion since 1993 and the experience gets better each time. The staff are so friendly and the food wonderful. I can't wait to return.

              The refurb was a bit nosy in the afternoon. Drilling sounds but it finished at 5pm.

              The staff were very helpful and pleasant. It was a bit outside of Cape Town but transport to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront was available and the City Bus Tour stop was just across the street. Very calm and relaxing.

              A unique and homely atmosphere,good location.Friendly staff.

              From start to finish we were made very welcome and soon settled in. The bar area Harveys is superb and we had 2 excellent meals in the restaurant. Practicing the putting outside our room added to the feel good factor of the hotel!

              I liked the lovely colonial atmosphere, teh magnificent location and the staff were very efficient and freindly

              My room was a bit noisy

              10.0

              The location was great - one could walk for kms along the promenade and breathe in the sea air while enjoying the mountainous terrain. The decor also appealed and the staff were very pleasant. Breakfast was excellent. My room was comfortable. All in all, a very good experience.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Loved the location on the sea front, the staff especially Adam, Craig, Happiness, Selina and Shafik were friendly, efficient and attentive. The rooms were great. The sunsets fantastic.

              First impressions on arrival (we did arrive too early) with building work, drilling and noise around reception were not so good, but soon calmed down.

              Had some minor construction (renovation) during the day and the internet is way too slow. However I found the internet to be rather slow at other places in SA so I guess the US has me spoiled.

              Great location and facilities, and very friendly and helpful staff. The bar's outdoor area has a lovely view of the sea - great for watching sunset.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              The hotel was very comfortable and welcoming despite the fact that it is obviously undergoing some renovation. We would definitely return to this hotel

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Excellent beach front location. Very close to v&a Waterfront and Camps Bay. The staff is extremely helpful and assisted us when booking a day trip for our shark diving. The design of the hotel is very nice with a very popular bar overlooking the sea front.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This is a superbly comfortable hotel, conveniently situated in a pleasant area of Cape Town within easy reach of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and historic sites. It is close to the recently built football stadium. It offers all the facilities required of a 21st century hotel whilst continuing to provide a quality and level of service rarely seen today. The staff are friendly, courteous and efficient and go that extra mile to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of guests. We have stayed at the hotel several times in the last 20 years and intend to return soon. Highly recommended as a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              Great service and very friendly and obliging staff made our stay exceptional. They took care of everything asked for. Good location directly across from the sea, about 5km from v&a waterfront. Overall great luxury hotel.
