Beautifully presented, comfortable, great service!

Posted Sep 11, 2016
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.

Period style in Cape Town

Really pleasant stay at the Walden House. Friendly helpful staff, great breakfasts with ample choice, and comfortably furnished rooms within a colonial style building. Nice and secure, it's in a convenient position for town - a short cab ride and equally close to the table mountain cable car. We enjoyed our stay here and found the Wakden House to be of excellent value.
