What people say

I have never been so impressed with the staff, than I have with those at this hotel. They could not do enough to ensure that you had a great stay. One of our highlights of our trip to SA. A credit to the hotel. Great location, so near the main lagoon, great design in rooms and great value. Will certainly return. The apartment was very spacious and very well appointed. The beds were comfortable and we felt at home straight away. Within walking distance to the Waterfront. Secure, underground parking. Breakfast at the restaurant downstairs was lovely. Very cosmopolitan feel to the setting.
