Charming guesthouse with fantastic staff

Posted May 4, 2017
Pros: We were made to feel so welcome every time we walked through the door, & everyone was so helpful. Breakfast (included in the rate) was also delicious
Cons: The wifi signal in our room (1) wasn't great, and I suspect that in very hot weather better air con would be welcome!
Location: Nice neighbourhood with many hotels/guesthouses & parking spots available. Restaurants & cafes within walking distance nearby, or close to Waterfront.
Cape Standard was our first stop after arriving in South Africa and it made a great impression! The room was very chic with a stylish bathroom, and the terrace at the back of the property was a gorgeous haven where we felt instantly relaxed after our travels. We were also able to eat breakfast out there on each morning of our stay which was such a treat. The guesthouse is situated in a good spot in Greenpoint, and was around a 20 minute walk to the waterfront area, though one evening we did decide to drive it instead. There was some construction work taking place behind the hotel, which wasn't an issue for most of our stay due to it being the weekend, but it could scupper a lie in during the week!

Excellent entry to Cape Town

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: The staff makes this a go-to destination. They create a no-worry environment - just what you want on a vacation.
The welcome at the Cape Standard couldn't have been better. From early emails to Margot about airport transfers and car rental, to the warm greeting we received from Paddington upon our late-night arrival, the dinner recommendations and reservations, plus general tips on getting around the city, the delicious breakfast, and the beautiful design of the place, we felt at home immediately. Really we couldn't ask for more. Cape Standard is a find.

Excellent hotel!

Posted Feb 20, 2017
We stayed at the Cape Standard for 4 nights. We were looked after really well from the minute we walked in until we left. The room was very modern and comfortable and the communal areas are well decorated and relaxing. Breakfast was simple but delicious each day and the service we received was brilliant. A special thanks to Paddington, he was a great host, always smiling and nothing was ever too much trouble.

Staying at a Morgue between Building Sites

Posted Aug 2, 2016 on Hotels
Terrible, surrounded by Building Sites you stay in a room that has the charm of a morgue, grey walls, grey floors, no paintings. No telephone on the room, no Mini Bar and Breakfast the bare essentials, not even cold meats or proper hot breakfast selection. For that price a total rip-off!

We are terribly concerned about your review. Each of our rooms do have a fully stocked mini bar, we could've definitely assisted with putting a telephone in the room for you if you needed one, we find that most guests have their own phones and/or tablets to use when on holiday. Our buffet consists of cold meats, cereals, yoghurt, bread rolls and a fruit salad as well as a cooked hot breakfast if you prefer. We were not informed of the building that is behind the guest house and doesn't affect our breakfast area and entertainment areas. Kind Regards

Friendly staff, dirty rooms.

Posted Mar 17, 2016 on Hotels
Th estaff cannot be faulted on their service and in fairness the owner did offer us an alternative room however our room was dirty. The curtains were torn and stained. The lights next to the bed are dirt ridden and dusty, the bathroom was covered in sand when we arrived. The walls are marked and dirty. The carpet is not clean. The room just is not up to standard.

The hotel is nicely decorated and very clean. The room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. The staff were attentive and friendly. The location was fairly convenient. I highly recommend staying at the Cape Standard Guest House.
