    Very good

    The staff were helpful and good having a shuttle bus down the waterfront where there were plenty restaurants and bars.

    Exclusive

    The staff at this hotel were extremely freindly and the thing that really impressed me was the fact that my wife and I received a complimentary upgrade to our room as it was our honeymoon.I would most definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The location, the excellent breakfast buffet, the Westin Brand, the room and bath room size and the friendly door men & taxis service to Water Front

    The lack of towels & wash cloths. The safe did not work & no one came to fix it when I requested. Though front desk & guest services were very helpful and accomodating.

    Superb

    Clean, spacious, very comfortable rooms. Quite a few things were broken in the room upon our arrival (two lamps, the shower head..) but everything was repaired swiftly upon our request. Free, fast Internet on 4 computers in the lobby of the hotel. Very good breakfast.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    I enjoyed the spa facilities, the frequency of the shuttles.

    A wider choice for breakfast would have been good, seemed to cater to mainly English and Japanese cuisine.

    Exclusive

    Complimentary room upgrade. Use of executive club - excellent breakfast. Great wine! Reliable courtesy bus to V and A waterfront

    Breakfast service at ground floor restaurant a little slow. But the hotel was fully booked because of jazz festival, which may be the reason.

    Fabulous

    Staff effeciency. Breakfast

    The fact that my bed was not made/ prepared at night, nor where curtains/blinds closed. This is something pretty standard in any 5 star hotel.

  • 10.0
    Exclusive

    very convinient for the events happening at the CTICC, spacious rooms, 24hr room service. it is definitely 5 star hotel and highly recommend it to anyone visiting cape town.

    was fully parked at the weekend, hence the competition on certain limited services, like the pool, spa and gym.

    excellent value for a luxury hotel ,staff friendly & helpful ,superb food

  • 9.6
    Exclusive

    The hotel is rated as 5 star but realistically I think that it is 4.5 which is still a very good standard and considered luxury class. Rooms are clean and spacious. In South Africa, I would recommend staying in a better quality hotel for security as the crime rate is very high, particularly at night so having a good location in a busy and well lit area is important. The hotel offers a free shuttle to take you to the Waterfront complex with access to lots of shops and restaurants. The shuttle only takes 5 minutes and departs every 30 minutes. There is a gym, pool, sauna on the top floor with excellent views of Cape Town and Table Mountain.

    Exclusive

    This was a fabulous hotel. We recieved an upgrade of our room on check in. From the concierge to the reception staff, everyone we met was very helpful and friendly and could not do enough for us. If your staying in Cape Town and looking to be near the waterfront this is an ideal location and the hotel runs a free shuttle bus.

    The breakfast and executive lounge was very good and the location in relation to the water front as well as city center was formidable.
