A World Apart

We were booked into another hotel for one night by another tour company having travelled to Cape Town by cruise on the QM2. The hotel we had been booked into was "the pits". We decided to extend our holiday and made a new booking online in this hotel. The hotels were a World apart. Beautiful building, pleasant, attentive and courteous staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was a feast and included in the price. Shuttle bus to waterfront and Table Mountain every hour. This was our first stay in a TAJ hotel. Next time it will be our first choice.

Palvelu oli erinomaista. Koronavirus supisti palveluita vierailun lopulla.

Täydellinen!

Henkilökunta tekee kaikkensa vieraiden viihtyvyyden eteen. Erinomaiset, siistit ja toimivat huoneet. Mainiot ravintolapalvelut. Mahtava aamiainen. Kallis mutta joka ropon arvoinen. Menemme ehdottomasti uudestaan.
