4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Good value
Very satisfactory and reasonably priced stay. Clean but fairly basic room. Good breakfast selection and secure parking. Pool was looking a bit grim when we were there so didn't use it but I think that was only temporary.

Fab B&B in Milnerton
I always enjoy my stay at Cotswold House. I am always made to feel very welcome. Denise who works in the office is lovely and very friendly as is all the staff . Marlene who cooks is a lovely host to have at breakfast. Warm,friendly and a lovely smile. The outside space is lovely with a large outdoor pool. Nearby Maestro’s on the Beach Restaurant at Woodbridge has a fabulous setting overlooking the beach and view to Table Mountain. My Citi buses run regularly into the City and Waterfront. The area is safe and there are many nature reserves nearby. Would not hesitate to recommend the fab B&B to anyone. Great value for many as well😀👍👍

great stay
The room may have been small, but it had everything I needed for a 7-8 day stay. They served the BEST Breakfast I ever had; it was so convenient to take the bus to the Civic Centre and right by the sea. Very friendly staff. Hope to get the chance to visit the Cape town area in the not too distant future and stay here again
