Excellent.

Posted Feb 8, 2017
Pros: Everything, particularly the swimming pool.
Cons: Slightly softer bed
Location: Great location. Within easy reach of V & A waterfront & local restaurants nearby.
Very conveniently placed, great breakfast & exceedingly helpful & cheerful staff. Had a swim in the delightful pool everyday. Didn't see the owners at all.

Style over substance

Posted Feb 5, 2017
Pros: The décor and staff
Cons: Welcome!
Location: Good location, only a short drive from the Waterfront, or walk
We chose this hotel because of the excellent reviews we had seen. The hotel is very stylish, and the room we stayed in was lovely. Breakfast was healthy, but there was no variation. The biggest disappointment was at check-in. The driver (who was lovely) showed us to our room, there was no other instruction or welcome. We intended to stay by the pool after a long journey. However,, we were advised no smoking, and would we smoke on the street. Then as we were leaving to explore the area, we were met by the owners mother. As we were very excited abut our trip we mentioned the trips and restaurants we had booked. She dismissed everything saying she would never send guests there. (everything we boked was excellent)We realised why when we saw that they run a travel agency and like to book all trips etc for the guests. We were pretty much left to our own devices and only saw the girls at breakfast or the driver. Joy was very nice when arranging taxis for us, but we had to search her out. For a non smoker, who likes to have everything booked for them on arrival, this place would be fine, as the location s good. However, not for us.

True B&B

Lovely staff for the most part, but not great under pressure. Parking is too limited and they are sometimes overbooked. No television and little privacy in rooms. Location is so perfect, you will forgive a lot.

Small rooms but great service

The rooms are small and no frills, but the service was great. They found me tickets for a football match and answered a ton of questions. Good for price.

Wonderful base for enjoying Cape Town

Posted May 7, 2016
Pros: The breakfast buffet, convenient location, helpful staff, quiet atmosphere, good-sized room.
The guesthouse is conveniently located for seeing the main sites of Cape Town. It is about a 20-minute walk to the Hop-On Hop-Off sightseeing bus. It is also about that far to the Waterfront. And the beach is about 10 minutes from the guesthouse. The managers were very helpful in arranging airport pickup, arranging tours, and making suggestions. The kitchen staff were also very friendly. The breakfast buffet is fantastic--all you can eat with fruit, yogurt, cereal, breads, meat and cheese board, and eggs. There is also a bowl of fruit along with coffee, tea, and chocolate available for guests, which was nice after returning from a day of touring. Use the airport pick-up service, especially if arriving after dark.
