A lovely, warm family environment. The staff will go out of their way, to make your stay a pleasure. It feels like a home away from home. Excellent flexibility with regards to home cooked meals. Already looking forward to our return.

Great place to stay in Durbanville. Family really enjoyed the stay and the great pool was refreshing after long trip! Only limitation is parking and scratched my car trying to park, even though Parking sign states "Parking at own risk". :-(

Cape pillars is a very nice, clean and quiet place about 30 min from Capetown downtown away. If you look for very nice rooms, good food and very friendly people, you are perfect there. I would come any time back, thank you to the cape pillars team Tobias, Germany
