Really Lovely Hotel
Really lovely hotel with great staff for whom nothing is too much trouble; our room was very spacious and well equipped with everything that you need for a comfortable stay. The hotel has a lovely garden and some great areas to sit and relax and they serve a fabulous breakfast each morning with a wide selection of both hot and cold dishes. After our one week stay we would definitely visit again.

Nice little hotel
It was perfect! Nice little hotel with spacious rooms, friendly staff and a really good breakfast. It is not in Cape Town downtown but has a perfect location. The restaurant at the corner is a great option for dinner.
