Great location, great place.

Posted May 27, 2017
Pros: Location, cleanliness, the balcony view (from some rooms). Breakfast and breakfast dining room,
Cons: Check out time is 10:00 am. Not a really big problem, you can store your luggage at the lobby.
Location: Location is very good for going practically in any direction. Close to Table Mountain station, close to downtown and the pier.
This place has it all. The great location, between downtown and Table Mountain cable car lower station. Beautiful villa. Excellent location also for people who will be boarding a cruise ship later. At upper floor you will have a nice view of the mountains and downtown from a balcony, accessible from a common corridor. The Honeymoon suite has a door directly to that L-shaped balcony. We were upgraded to that suite, which was very large with a fireplace, desk and cozy chairs. Bathroom is also large, nicely decorated and honeymooners will appreciate free standing bath tub and his and her shower head in the stall. Excellent breakfast includes not only a buffet section but also menu where you can order eggs, bacon...etc. Napkins have a temperature for that day printing on them - nice touch. The villa also has a cozy common area, again with a fireplace, sofa and more. The owner will get you tickets for Table Mountain on line, bypassing the waiting and also she will order a taxi for you. It will cost you about sixty SAR. It should be less by taxi meter (forty), but taxis are trying to get more, since shorter distance is not profitable for them. Still better choice than walking, which would be at least twenty minutes at higher pace and up the hill. We were very happy that we made this choice - to stay at The Walden House. Highly recommended!

Beautifully presented, comfortable, great service!

Pros: Beautiful, comfortable rooms, great location, and great service.
I had a week long stay in a garden room - it was comfortable, beautifully decorated and presented and most importantly clean. The Walden House is in a very inviting setting with beautiful gardens and all of the home comforts you could want. The staff are very friendly and helpful, arranging transport and tours with no problem. The airport transfer was great with a very helpful friendly driver. The Walden house really is in a great location, just out of the CBD it is still central Cape Town, close to table mountain with lots of lovely cafes 2 minutes walk away, and a short taxi ride to the V & A Waterfront (50-60ZAR). I had arrived early/mid morning so had arranged to drop my bags off - when I arrived my room was ready which after 30 hours of flying I was so incredibly appreciative of. The breakfasts are lovely with plenty of options. I used the laundry service which was well priced and great. Thanks for making me feel so welcome - If I am back in Cape Town I will definitely stay again.

Great start to our vacation.

Great Service! They helped us find our way around town and arranged a local car rental which delivered the car to the Walden House. They also arranged taxi service. The Walden House was quaint and pleasant and the breakfast was superb. We loved the fresh Protea flowers in the room at the table and in the common areas.
