This village-style hotel, with low buildings and adjoining individual units, is 10 minutes from the center of Cape Town, close to District Six, and a brisk 20-minute walk from the Waterfront, although walking is not recommended. Some guests find the complex security (high walls, electric fence, cameras) a bit off-putting, but others like the peace of mind it gives them. Rooms are spacious and pleasantly furnished in a cheerful and contemporary style, and all come with a fully equipped kitchen. Some rooms have mountain views; others look into the city. Although it's on a corner site, the hotel is well insulated, so traffic noise is not a major problem; inner rooms tend to be quieter. If you have a car, you can park it virtually outside your room. A free shuttle takes you to popular sights within about 13 km (8 mi) of the hotel. Some stays include a full breakfast.
