                        The ease of getting to all areas of the city + the courtsy Bus on to the waterfront was ideal

                        A smell of stagnent water at times in the Bar area

                        First quality hotel with dedicated employees.

                        This is the first time ever that having booked via Booked.net the hotel debits my visa on the day of arrival. This was quite a hefty sum that I intended to pay upon my departure with the perdiems paid to me by my employer after my 12-day stay, but was given no option. They also blocked a sum of 450€ for 'minibar consumptions'. I find this procedure totally unacceptable and abusive. I was given room 321 with a splendid view on the motorway just few meters away from the hotel. Needless to say, the traffic noise was unbearable.

                        The facilities are excelent. The location is excelent (just 10m walk from the va Waterfront) and there is a shuttle every 30m. The room service is very good and not very expensive. The personnal is very polite and always willing to help. There is a Europcar (car rental) desk at the Hotel.

                        Children under 12 aren't allowed in the swimming pool.

                        Location is good if you are attending a conference at th CTICC. Good facilities in terms of Gym/Spa. Shuttle service to V&A is a good initiative.

                        The in room TV is not very good and housekeeping tends to be inefficient sometimes.

                        The servivce of the valet staff and restaurant staff was excellent

                        The front desk staff were not as forthcoming as they could have been. Seemed a bit indifferent at times.

                        Stayed here over the weekend. This is a remarkable hotel as far as design, service, comfort and views are concerned. From our room we could see the V&A Waterfront and the new Cape Town stadium. The room and the bathroom is large and the floor to ceiling window is awesome. Breakfast in the Executive Lounge was very good. I highly recommend this hotel to any person who wants a room with a view.

                        The concierge and guest service staff were excellent. Breakfast was also very good.

                        The room service was highly variable eg some days ice, chocolates, bottled water was left, others not.

                        The hotel is good in terms of location, product and service. Spacious rooms and good views. Easy accessibility to Waterfront and city centre with Long street in adjacent. Staffs were really freindly. Breakfast was really good..

                        The F&B could be improved in terms of dining menus and room service menus. The varieties are very limited and you have no choice but go for the same menu in all the outlets including room service! Being Westin, they could be bit more generous by keeping the 5 star standards of 2 bottles of mineral water, extra bathroom amenities and some welcome letter with simple savouries.. Also the hotel could be bit more lively with some live music or band to entertain and keep the guests with in the hotel rather going out to the adjacent hang outs during night which is quiet unsafe in this country

                        The breakfasts were most enjoyable with a wonderful array of juices and food to choose from.

                        The bath towels could have been of a better standard. this has been brought to the attention of the hotel and the matter addressed. the use of the mini bar fridge was very restrictive.

                        I really love the executive club restaurant

                        Staff at all level were excellent except at check in or reception one girl was not good

                        The room was large, well equiped, as was the bathroom but a little tired.In general the staff were pleasent and helpful.The breakfast was very good.The spa was also good as was the transfer service to the waterfront.

                        The reception when checking in was not the best. We had dinner in the hotel on our last night which was poor in both quality and service. The hotel is in our opinion not suitable for a vacation having no outside lounging areas. It is a conference hotel. The bar and restaurant had no atmosphere which is probably one of the reasons why it had few diners during our stay.
