Boutique gem at V&A waterfront
Posted Jun 6, 2013
This gem of a boutique hotel exceeded our expectations in every way.The location is fantastic - perched just above the V&A waterfront with a private gate off the back lawn leading directly to the centre of the waterfront action. The staff were relaxed and friendly, and couldnt do enough for us in terms of booking drivers for day trips, suggesting and booking restaurants, and giving advice on different wineries / sights. Kelly, in particular, was an angel.
The rooms are, quite simply, MASSIVE. Beautifully appointed, clearly only just renovated, and with a homely touch that is still very chic. The bathroom was almost as big as the room, with the biggest bath I've soaked in in a long time, huge separate shower with marble feature wall, double basin sink and great range of local products.
The room we had, #5 upstrais, opened on to a private balcony with great views over the waterfront and the ocean behind that. A la carte breakfast was downstairs in a lovely intimate dining room, with fresh fruit and pastries and a good selection of hot mains.
We stayed 4 nights, and when we come back to Cape Town wouldnt stay anywhere else. Thanks again Kelly and the team.
