Lovely, quiet guest house with great servicePosted Oct 22, 2013
Pros: The service and comfort of this hotel were fantastic and exceeded my expectations.
Cons: The strength of the Wi-Fi signal could be better, especially at the back of the property.
Location: Very close to the stadium at Green Point but a good 30+ minute walk to the V&A Waterfront or Long Street areas, so you'll want to budget for taxis.
Antrim Villa is a very well maintained guest house with helpful, friendly staff. The rooms are well sized and decorated, although the bathroom in my room was a little tight. Towels, toiletries and spare pillows/blankets were provided. There is a swimming pool and the guest house now has free Wi-Fi throughout although the strength of the signal varies greatly and can drop off completely out the back by the pool and room 8 where I was staying. There is a comfortable and fair sized lounge with small kitchenette where breakfast is served in the morning and is available for you to use during the rest of the day. As well as a Scandinavian breakfast buffet service, with staff on hand to assist and tidy after you, there's an honesty bar/fridge - take what you need and write it down on the sheet under your room number, then ay on departure. Joy was very helpful over email in answering questions about possible itineraries before I arrived in Cape Town, and Ingrid followed that up once I arrived by being very helpful booking the activities and trips I requested and arranging pick up from the villa and transfer to the airport. There is a security/support person on the property at night and the entrance is gated, but you are able to come and go at your leisure. There are some charming, nice touches as well about the service - I won't spoil them by telling you what they are!

what a delightPosted Oct 2, 2013
Location: Waterfront 15 min walk away.
So glad we found Antrim Villa. Beautiful, clean, friendly, and helpful. Small enough to be very friendly. As guests return in the evening, we would sit around in the living room. We met such fascinating people--from Brazil, Germany, etc. Delicious breakfast including cooked eggs, yogurt, breads, cheeses, etc. A 15 min walk from the waterfront. Felt very safe walking back and forth during the day, but took short taxi ride (~$5) after dark.

Take your partner there..or even yourself!Posted Apr 20, 2013
Everything from the atmospheric and fitting light music playing around the place, to the colorful and wonderful breakfast, to the small leaf on your pillow, to the warm smiles of Ingrid and the staff. A truly homely stay, and I felt safe, warm, and like I had my own little slice of serenity to venture back to each evening. 6/5.
