Fantastic location!
We've enjoyed our stay at the Mansion. The staff is very friendly, the sunset view is just fabulous and it's great to take a walk along the sea side.

Prime Position on Beach Road Sea Point
This hotel can hardly be better situated on Beach Road, Sea Point, and has been going strong for more than fifty years. The facade is as good- looking as ever, parts of the interior have been renovated, and the rooms will be refurbished next. The staff at reception are competent and friendly. The breakfast is good and comprehensive. The standard rooms are adequate, and the bar and terrace are very popular with guests and outsiders as well. If one should like to stay in the Sea Point area of Cape Town, one should definitely consider staying in this hotel.

The overall experience was satisfactory. The shower soap holder was broken, had allergic sinusitis through out my stay, not sure if it was the dust on the carpets or the ventilation or air-con. Not sure if that was unique to my room. Otherwise the stay was pleasant, staff was friendly and eager to be of assistance all the time.

Location, staff, scones.
We always have a back room which is really quiet. The standard rooms are a good size with large bathrooms and walk-in showers. Having breakfast in the cool courtyard is a lovely way to start the day.

Setting, food, rooms
We arrived after 10pm on Friday night and approached the restaurant staff and asked if it was possible to get something to eat. The waitress very kindly spoke to the kitchen and made a plan for us. We only felt like starters and dessert however my biltong soup was delicious and the dessert which was a chocolate lava pudding with a beautiful icecream and mandarin oranges on the side was excellent. My husband also enjoyed his food. Loved the "old world charm" of the place. The room was very tastefully decorated with large bath and shower. Loved the courtyard (part of the restaurant) which is part of the restaurant but would be ideal for functions. Bar was comfortable and also tastefully decorated with outside verandah facing the promenade - a perfect place for a sundowner. Will definitely be back!!
