      It was serviced everyday. Walking distance from good restaurants. Bus stop infront of hotel to the waterfront and hop on hop off bus.

      The staff is friendly but made mistakes on check in and check out. Our invoice was 25% more on check out, however it was adjusted when I questioned it.

      Location was pretty good, very close to the shops in Sea Point and just across the road from the bus stop...

      On;y the 6 sleeper rooms have views of the ocean, otherwise no sea- facing apartments for double rooms etc

      it was just very noisy

      no the noise will kill you

      I like the location of the hotel which is close to the sea side promenad and nearby shopping and dining, and the wide accomdation which has a bedroom, a living room and kitchen (with all the appliances) that makes staying more relaxed. Stuffs are very helpful.

      What I don't like is the oldness of the elevator and toilets (just old not unclean.) There is no complimentary shuttle bus from Airport to hotel.

      The room was ok, but no view ( view to a inner hall). Antique hotel, needs some renovations. The price was too high for the room.

      Not much really

      Ordered a room for 4 - 2 adults, 2 children. I knew there was a double bed and an opening sofa made for the kids. I didn't expect to find just the double bed and a sofa I need to prepare myself. I had to open this dingy dirty looking sofa and take sheets from the cupboard and make the bed myself. We arrived at night ready to sleep and did not expect to be hassled by this. One of the sheets was stained and that was enough for my wife to not let the kids sleep on that bed - so she slept in the double bed with the kids and I slept that night on the sofa-self-made- bed. Miserable night! Needless to say the towels were not appealing too so we showered only after we left that hotel in the morning. I would not recommend that hotel to others.

      - I like the promptly of the staff to help us when we ask for our booking via telephone. - We also ask for transfer from airport to the hotel, when we arrived somebody was there for to assist us. - The bus stop it is front to the hotel. The taxi also are near. - The hotel is best localized, you can go on foot to city center, enjoying the sea view panorama. - The hotel also has security. - The rooms was cleaned every days. We like our stayed at Riviera resort.

      I think that the fridge must be changed because doesn't work well.

      location - on the sea

      no parking no free internet access: R50 for 30 minutes is rather expensive
