  • Our hotel in Cape Town was very comfortable, very well situated and the travel agency/ concierge service that they had was extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants, providing rides in the evenings and even assisting us when our rental car did not start one morning.

"Centrally located the Cape Royale is only a 10 minute walk away from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and the many surrounding attractions in Cape Town making it a great option for families or couples. What I really enjoyed about my stay was the luxury of the Spa and watching the sunset from the Sky Bar!"

The Cape Royale Hotel suite was magnificent. The rooms were very comfortable and they were extremely hospitable. Their free pickup and drop off to V&A waterfront was a bonus. We really enjoyed the all day private excursion in Cape Town. Our chauffeur and guide was fantastic. We even managed to do a lot of shopping and shark diving in the aquarium. That was breath taking!
