Bathrooms and overall atmosphere is lacking due to the property being old, which also has its charm, but a couple of things need to be done to create a more homey feeling. I felt a little to "locked in" with all the systems to get in and out. Making guests use the back entrance is also not very welcoming as... More

Overall stay was pleasant. Staff were very helpful and friendly. If I could make a suggestion, it would be great if television sets could be placed in rooms as the common TV room became crowded at times.

This accommodation was very well situated, with a very pleasant surrounding. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves and found the rooms to be well designed and very clean. We will easily stay there again if the need arises.

Lovely old building. Huge rooms. Comfy bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Great value for money. Things to add to make it excellent - provide breakfast within the guest house and internet in the room.

A Guesthouse with warm and friendly staff and an excellent location to visit all the nearby shops and restaurants in Kalk Bay. Nice verandah and room was clean and comfortable. We had breakfast at one of the coffee shops nearby. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.

Very cosy and nice guest house with good staff. Whales swimming in front of the window during the breakfast. Peacefull city and the young lady as host wast the friendliest ever. Would definately recoommend, the price was maybe distracting because it was so cheap

This little guest house is one of my favorite places I have ever stayed during all of my travels. It is up on a hill in Kalk Bay, near the water and the train station. It has maybe 10 rooms all together, about 100 years old, and very unique. It feels as if I was a guest in someone's house.... More

Excellent service and very kind employees. Nice rooms with sea-view. Attractive location, just a short walk to the city-center with nice restaurants, very attractive price/quality ratio. Breakfast to be taken in another hotel, but this recommendation was fantastic.

We had a terrific stay at the Inn. Our room was handsome and clean, management was very helpful and accommodating, and the hotel was a short walk from the waterfront. Including breakfast would be nice, but there's always the Olympia!
