I wanted to stay at a B&B which was near the university's city campus. I found this place and was duly impressed by the hospitality, the warm clean sheets during CT's 'winter' and full breakfast (including the one morning with delicious sourdough bread straight from the oven!). I also appreciated the ease to walk to all of the lovely restaurants... More

My wife and I stayed in the cottage with a friend-- 2 bedrooms and kitchen facilities. This little hotel is a wonderful, quiet oasis in the middle of a vibrant neighborhood. Very close to downtown. Maxime and Melodie are wonderful, always ready to help.

My wife and I highly recommend La Grenadine, nestled off the vibrant Park Rd. It is reasonably priced, peaceful, clean, safe & secure. When we arrived we were greeted at the door by the friendly owner Maxim who carried our bags to our room and gave us the run down on Cape town. Thanks to Martin for preparing our breakfast,... More

I stayed 8 nights at La Grenadine with friends. Maxime, the owner, was very accommodating. He arranged a private taxi, Malcolm, who picked us up everyday and took us wherever we wanted and came back at night to take us to dinner. This guesthouse is very welcoming and quaint. A good breakfast was included which we ate in the courtyard... More

La Grenadine is an old farmhouse painstakingly restored by Max and Melody , a young French couple. Two friends and I stayed in the two bedroom cottage where we were very comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, living area and private courtyard. There is one full bathroom with a shower ,and in the larger bedroom there is a tub and... More

Thoughtfully decorated, artistic and a perfect location to explore Cape Town by foot. Homemade jams, fresh croissants and hand pressed juice for breakfast. Staff are helpful and courteous. Only issue was the room had dust bunnies and needed a better cleaning. Top floor rooms have stunning views of Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Signal Hill.

The perfect hideaway. In the heart of Cape Town's bustling Kloof street, where one can find all the restaurants, bars, wellness centres, massages, yoga classes and shops at walking distance and feel safe. I highly recommend the place to anyone who is not looking for an impersonal 5 star hotels with cold design. When you get back at night after... More

I really enjoyed my stay at la Grenadine very much. I loved the room, everything was super clean and prepared with a lot of attention. The breakfast was delicious with the fresh juices to choose from. The garden is perfect to relax and read a book and the location in general is great to visit Cape Town.

If you enjoy the unusual and charming La Grenadine has it all -- a converted 1820's farmhouse in downtown Cape Town with rooms looking onto a spacious and sunny garden full of pomegranate trees (hence the name, La Grenadine). Maxime and his wife Michelle have converted what was once a stable and then a school into 8 comfortable and original... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Grenadine, an elegant guesthousetucked away in the bustling heart of Cape Town’s City Bowl.An escape from the city within the cityAs soon as you open the wooden gates, it’s hard to believe you’re still in the city centre. You discover a magnificent 19th-century farm building set in a garden dotted with antique tables and chairs under old pomegranate, guava, avocado and olive trees. And that’s what makes La Grenadine so special: just outside this idyllic setting is a vibrant neighborhood (Kloof Street) full of restaurants, coffee shops, young South African designers, a wellness centre, cinemas, galleries and museums… Modern meets vintageOriginally from France, we fell in love with Cape Town some years ago and decided to stay. ... more   less
