I loved our stay at the Cape Royale Hotel in Cape Town. The Hotel is close to the V&A Waterfront and offer complimentary shuttle transfers in a 5km radius. The staff are very friendly and makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. I especially love their attention to detail and my 4 year old daughter loved the princess crown they left on the bed for her after turn-down. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite which has 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a great view over the V&A. I think it is the perfect family hotel that offers 5 star service and great value for money. I would love to return soon!
