    Very good

    The seperate lounge/desk area was useful as was the seperate shower and toilet

    Eating choice was fairly restricted, although, if the weather was good, the V & A waterfront was within easy walking distance - if you knew the way.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Good location and enjoyable breakfast menu

    The location of our room was not particularly quiet possibly due to students. The room lacked a fridge and inadequate supplies of tea/coffee/milk.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    I liked its proximity to the V and A Waterfront a,d the fact that the surrounding was very quite.

    Rooms were very small and without air conditioners.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    excellent location, so close to all the Waterfront attractions and restaurants

  • 6.2
    Good

    Excellent troubleshooting at check-in, good location and decent price. Good breakfast. Nice to get upgrade, but standard room must be very basic if the upgrade was the best room type.

    It's in functioning Grad school, so canteen gets full of students at breakfast and its hard to find your way around the compound.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    All in all we found the hotel to be of good value

    It was slightly to far from the v&a to be listed as v&a waterfront

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    That it was so close to the V&A Waterfront and we could walk to everything

    Didn't like the restaurant set-up and the fact that the Cafe only opened at 3pm

  • 10.0
    Exceptional

    The room was huge and the views out to sea from the restaurant were great

  • 6.2
    Good

    Location of the hotel is very convenient but nothing much.

    The rooms are definitely too small. Safety is a bit of an issue especially for the groundfloor rooms.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    It was close to my Lecture halls and thus finishing study assignements meant I could walk to my hotel room at 1 in the morning with no safety issues.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Located next to the V&A Waterfront at a reasonable price

    Breakfast room far away from hotel room

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The views from the breakfast room and the friendly hotel staff.

    The website said they had free wi-fi but that is not the case. There is not wi-fi and one has to pay extra for cable service.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Clean - cellphone charger also very handy

    Cold water on the day of departure - me and my 11-year old son had to leave at 06h00 for the airport - no hot water for a proper shower! Aaggghhhh!

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Very close to the V & A, good breakfast, value for money

  • 7.4
    Very good

    I liked that there was a bath and not just a shower.

    I did not like that one has to walk outside on one's own to get to the restaurant.
