Stayed here for 2 days in the middle of 3-week a business trip traveling from St Louis to UAE, South Africa, Botswana and then back to St Louis. Only 3 downtime days in the 3-weeks. I choose this hotel after consulting my daughter who has stayed in Cape Town SA for almost a year. Lovely Victorian residence converted to Hotel... More

If you want a really comfortable night's sleep on wonderful beds in a very beautiful and safe setting, then this is the place for you! It is a genuine 5* guesthouse (so there may be fewer staff and slightly slower service than a 5* hotel) but the facilities are top class. The fridge is well stocked and a good selection... More

My husband and I recently spent the night at St James Manor, and all in all, had a wonderful time. We were welcomed by Goodnews, who showed us to our lovely suite (we stayed in the Vancouver Suite) which was absolutely stunning. Very opulent, well appointed, comfortable and with a beautiful view. He also explained that we could help ourselves... More

I am not a poet so I will describe my stay at Rovos Guesthouse St James Seaforth as follows: 1. Excellent Location in arguably one of the most scenic coastal locations in the world. 2. Beautiful guesthouse with great views from all rooms. 3. Amazing staff willing to pamper in the most pleasant and non-invasive ways 4. My 13 year... More

We stayed in Seaforth a private villa owned by St James hotel. It's just a few doors from the main hotel. It's stunning but needs improvements!!!! Here is my list, first I think someone should live in on the property to make sure at all times this place is secure!!! We were burgled whilst out for a short time. There... More

This unique property has become a luxury guesthouse that offers an equally unique luxury experience. The house manager Lee-Anne is the lynchpin of its success. Extremely service-minded, determined to deliver above already high expectations, and in posession of an old-world grace that belies her youth but perfectly fits the august property, she made us feel truly welcome and at home....

We arrived at the St James Homestead to enjoy a small break away from the city chaos. Upon our arrival we were met by the Manager, Chris Sandham who was unbelievable to work with and nothing was impossible for him to do. Chris is an absolute gem to work with and even more charismatic and accommodating in person. The entire... More

If you want high quality standard around St James, the Seaforth is a good choice. Somewhat apart from the main manor, but with a much more modern setup. Like a huge beachfront villa basically, but with 3 room that are rented out. We had the place to ourselves the first night, felt absolutely right. Great service, the manager welcomed us... More

Service, comfort, food, entertainment, history, art & old world charm, with a dash of good old South African hospitality. I felt so proud to be South African after my Rovos experience, what a class act. I would highly recommend that any local or tourist enjoy touring our country in this type of style.
