Superbe expérience!

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: Se sentir chez soi sans avoir rien à faire, des petits déjeuners délicieux au bord de la piscine et une équipe top: Ursula, Frank, Sharon et Alex.
Cons: La couvertur WiFi ... Mais c'est difficile dans cette région
Location: A 25 mn des galeries d'art du Cap, des vignobles de Stellenbosch et des plages de NordHoek ou de Camps Bay: le rêve...
Cadre très agréable, chambres raffinées et confortables, service chaleureux et professionnel.

Nice place - but careful of the driveway

Posted Feb 8, 2015
Pros: Breakfast Frankie - he works hard
Cons: The driveway! Staff attitude - only one member of staff Heat the pool Add a bar fridge & aircon More furniture needed in room
Location: Blue Route shopping centre Tokai forest Golf course Wine estate
Couldn't risk parking on the grounds. When we arrived I stopped our car outside and rang the bell. The gate opened and I drove in - scrape - the front bumper ruined. The receptionist basically told me it was my fault - no apology - how rude is that? If you look at the angle of the short ramp to the gate you will see why a normal car can't avoid scraping it's front - there have been numerous scrapes damaged vehicles - see the evidence in the deep grooves in the tarmac and compare this to the ramp next door. I then parked outside to avoid further damage - not a good to have to do this. This opening experience, together with the surly, rude attitude of the member of staff tainted the rest of our stay. Good breakfasts - good selection. Although chaotic when all guests arrive at the same time - the kitchen was under siege one morning. Pool in shade in the afternoon - did not use in the January heatwave. Room OK, but no fridge or aircon. Or view. And not anywhere to put a bag - found myself scrabbling around on the floor a lot. And only one chair in the room. Maybe we were given a duff room - we were told our room was allocated based on other guests getting up early for golf. We were up before them most days. I think they just wanted to please one group of guests, and never mind us. Well, I probably won't be staying here again - that's the way my cookie crumbles!

Cute accommodation tucked away in residential area

Posted Jan 29, 2015
Very pleasant bungalow style accommodation nestled away in a residential part of Tokai. Close to large shopping mall. Very good value for money. No air conditioning but supplied fan kept us cool.

A Wonderful Place

Posted Jan 2, 2015 on Hotels
Monrningside Cottage is an eight suite/room B&B in a pleasant neighborhood 20 minutes from downtown Cape Town. The motorway/freeway is a mere 3 minute drive from the B&B making most attractions easily accessible. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Breakfasts were fantastic with an ample buffet and a very tasty breakfast menu (freshly made). The pool was clean and refreshing. The room did not have air conditioning, but the cool evenings helped keep the room comfortable. Morningside is a family friendly while still being quiet and relaxing. Morningside will be at the top of our list if/when we return to the Cape Town area.

Beautiful and quaint B&B tucked away.

Pros: The breakfast!
Cons: Bed
Location: Live in CT so was just a getaway
Lovely little place and we really enjoyed it. Staff was very helpful and breakfast was wonderful. Bed was pretty uncomfortable but other than that the room and bathroom was gorgeous. Would definitely go back.

ccc+ Wohlfühlgarantie

Nach der Anreise fühlten wir uns sehr wohl im Cottage. Personal und Besitzerin sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Frühstück ist sehr gut und alles wird frisch zubereitet. Wir werden auf alle Fälle dieses Cottage wieder buchen.

Un havre de paix pour voyageurs exigeants !

Posted Feb 10, 2014
Pros: -la situation paisible au sein d'un estate -la disponibilité du personnel -le charme de l'endroit -les autres clients -une ambiance familiale
Cons: Rien à signaler
Location: -le Cap de Bonne Espérance -les plages de Haut Bay et de CAmps BAy -la route des vins vers Stellenbosch
Je suis un voyageur exigeant. Je me déplace souvent pour des raisons professionnelles dans les grands hôtels internationaux où l'on a des habitudes mais où le charme manque souvent. Le Morningside est un lieu extraordinaire pour quiconque veut profiter de moments paisibles et reposants. -la maison d'hôtes comporte un maximum de 10 chambres -c'est un lieu situé à 20 minutes de Cape Town et qui permet de rayonner aisément vers les points d'intérêt sans avoir à affronter les embouteillages de la capitale à 9heures le matin ou à 17h. -c'est un endroit avec une piscine appréciable et peu utilisée -le personnel est charmant, serviable et efficace -le prix des chambres est incroyablement attractif. -la maîtresse de maison (Ursula) est pleine d'attention et de délicatesse. Elle communique ses bonnes adresses de restaurants, ses suggestions de visites, route des vins... D'ailleurs nous y avons rencontré des visiteurs qui y reviennent depuis plusieurs années. C'est un signe qui ne trompe pas. Si nous sommes amenés à retourner au Cap en été, ce sera au Morningside. Nous avons été séduits et bluffés par l'endroit.

Great Place to Relax

The people here really go out of there way for you. The breakfast was exceptional (highly recommend omelet). Great place to just relax. Very homely atmosphere.
