On the fringes of the city proper, just on the edge of a suburb called Tamboerskloof.
There are various room types - from the standard issue offerings with king-size bed and in-suite (as opposed to en-suite) shower to their two-level one-and-two-bedroomed fully serviced apartments. All rooms are given an extra edge with quirky and colourful decor details.
From the lounge to the bar and restaurant there is a pleasant buzz of activity in the hotel.
Eating and drinking
Party folk meet in the Alpine style Action bar with its 'ice counter' and enjoy watching the chefs in action. The restaurant is given the glam treatment with chandeliers overhead while the menu is a global smörgasbord. Try their milkshakes - they're delicious!
There is a well-equipped gym, a lap pool and deck, and the For Goodness Sake spa for easing out any travel aches and pains.
Service is friendly and enthusiastic and there is a special focus on introducing people to the city and its surrounds via outdoor activities and excursions, arranged on your behalf by the concierge team.
