              • Couple
                8.8

                We stayed at Le Vendome for 8 nights during a trip to Cape Town. We found the hotel to be excellent value (thanks to the deal from Booked.net), and in a great location for exploring the city and surrounding areas. The staff were hugely helpful and courteous and were happy to help with every query we had. The breakfast was decent and plenty to choose from, both hot and cold. The place is showing its age in parts but I have stayed in far worse places and paid much more - I think this is one of the best pound for pound hotels I have ever stayed in and certainly deserves its inclusion in Small Leading Hotels. If you want 100% luxury I reckon it will cost you about 3-5 times as much in a newer establishment. I felt I had received great value.

              • Older travelers
                3.8

                I could not recommend this hotel and would not advise anyone else to use it, as it is planning on closing down at the end of April and the staff could not really care about the guests for this reason. It was supposed to be a five star hotel and you could rate it less then 3. There was no information in the bedroom about the hotel and the swimming pool was dirty and you could not use it. There was supposed to be courtesy bus to take the guests into Cape Town but this was stopped also.

              • Couple
                5.8

                This is a great building, the staff were exceptionally polite and helpful and were obviously distressed that we were not happy with our stay.

                The airconditioner in our room did not work and could not be fixed, leaving the room uncomfortable. The staff reported that the owners had embarked on some refurbishment and then stopped the process - and are clearly that the hotel is tired and needs a facelift. The maids forgot to put towels out - and then housekeeping forgot to bring them up when asked to do so. All is all a hotel with wonderful attention and some friendly staff, but lacking in polish and finish. Disappointing!

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                Excellent location, just steps from the beach; great starting point for tours of the city and the area

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The room. The breakfast. The location close to the Sea Point promenade.

                It's not a complaint, but the public areas don't quite match the excellence of teh rooms.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Very nice hotel , helpfull staff,clean and efficient.Good kitchen and well presented breakfast.

                The centralized air-conditioning system was not efficient,resulting our (west) facing room to be very hot

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Staff assistance, breakfast quality and service, business centre internet no charges, location for seafront and waterfront complex.

              • Single
                7.8

                CS staff at reception were particularly helpful and did go the extra mile to help with early check-in and check-out. I got good tourist info at the desk as well and found everyone in the reception area very helpful and eager to help.

                Breakfast service wasn't as good as it could have been - took quite some time to find someone to get a cup of tea

              • Family with children
                5.0

                Location is beautiful. Near the beach in a quiet road in Fresnaye.

                To be honest the stay at Le Vendome was very disappointing. Some facts: - after staff broke the baby cot while moving from one room to the other (leaking sink) they suggested that we put our baby with us in bed until they could sort out the cot the day after (unacceptable!) - we arrived with 30 degrees Celsius and the air-conditioning throughout the hotel did not work at all (inconvenient) - the restaurant was empty, unlit and staff rushed us out of there to close up and the food was mediocre (disappointing). After complaining we got a 20% discount on the room rate, but still we feel that Le Vendome is not a 5 star rating worthy and with bad value for money. We expected a lot more based on their website.

              • Couple
                6.2

                The staff was great. Always reacting to our needs and very friendly. When we checked in the Air Conditioning wasnt working at all. The hotel staff gave us a few options in which to pick from for an upgrade.

                The hotel seemed to be a bit old and rundown. Besides the Air Conditioning being broken for days (in their defense, it was Christmas week) the carpeting and furniture seemed old and the lanterns were breaking at the pool. Also, perhaps its because we arrived for breakfast at 10am but the spread was just stale.

              • Single
                8.2

                Only 2 day business trip - staff were friendly and extremely helpful.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Comfort, personal friendly attention of the staff of all grades. Good location for City and surrounding area

              • Older travelers
                5.8

                Pleasant hotel - difficult to rate honestly on this page.

                As above - many instances which could be listed, but perhaps this is not the correct venue.
