                                  A great location for access to v&a, Robben Island etc. The Commodore welcomed children with the large room having a queen bed and a comy single fold out. (The Portswood next door would not take a booking with kids.) Lots of room left for bags and moving around. Breakfast was great and the restaurant served a delicious reasonably priced dinner. A great bar with large fire place for chilly nights. The staff were friendly and helpful.

                                  The staff was most obliging and friendly, offering help without being asked first. The breakfast was amazing, the beds were very comfortable.

                                  The windows on the 4th floor open alarmingly wide - enough for someone to slip and fall out while trying to close the window.

                                  I didn't find the Waterfron particularly interesting. Next time I would stay in the wine district or perhaps at a boutique hotel further down the coast or on the east side of the peninsula. Didn't really enjoy the centre of Cape Town, but loved all the other suburbs.

                                  The hotel seems to be old and when the wind blows it creeks and squeeks to the extend that you cant get to sleep at night.

                                  Breakfast buffet is excellent. Tables at the garden are also noce when whete\ther is good.

                                  The hotel gave us a room of lower CLASS(standard room) than we booked. We stayed one night there before we moved in "right room(business room)" where we stayed another three nights after we complaint. no compensation nor special service was provided against the mistake. The hotel staff said "Business room and Standard room are same rate throgh Booked.net".(i don't know if this is true or not) We also had some other small troubles. One of those was that they accused us for not packing our baggages before we went to sightseeing when we moved in "right room" while we confirmed that we can pack them after we come back. Hotel staff entered in our room despite "Do not disturb" tag.

                                  The staff was excellent as was the food. The location is a three minute walk to the waterfront. It is excellent value for money.

                                  The only disappointment was the outdated equipment in the gym. I needed to work out the kinks after a 30 hour trip.

                                  They had a voucher system for interbet access that expired the evening before we left!. They did provide a new code but this was inconvenient. The access should be codeless - what are they worried about? They made a double charge oin my credit card. They did refunfd the second payment , but due to currency issues it cost me £20 for this mistake they made!
