Our big group had an excellent stay at The Palm House. We were 11, and stayed in the same house. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Much better than staying in a hotel if you are in a group. We could enjoy the bar and the restaurant almost exclusively for us. Were can you find better privacy? The staff... More

Mustapha is 'really the host with the most' - he provided excellent and thoughful service. He has made me feel very welcome, thus Palm House has become my new home, away from home. Thank you for a superb experience.

We recently visited Cape Town on a family holiday and stayed at the Palm House in Wynberg. We chose the location as it central to the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town and were blown away by the staff friendliness and "going the extra mile". The rooms were neat and tidy, and the views beautiful as well. 5 star service all... More

Home in Africa. Nice quiet location. Most friendly staff. Excellent rooms/cottages. We enjoyed it immensely. Will come again on our next trip to Capetown. Will rent a car then. Although Sean was always willing to drive us.

Stayed at the hotel for convenience for my daughter's wedding. It was close to the church so that made a difference for us. We could also accomodate more people in the 6person cottage and 4person cottage. I stayed at the Palm before and it seems nothing has changed there in 2 years. I wish they would do more with respect... More

....would love to go back. We were delighted to be upgraded to the Pool room. This was a 'flying visit' for a week and has certainly wetted our appetite for a return visit. We used the metro from Kenilworth, but it was good to have the option of the hotel's taxi service.

All good but recommend free wireless. They provide some Mb free; then you pay. Nowadays wireless is expected esp. if on work; I would've chosen a place that offered that, but was there for a training.

Dear Shirley, Thank you for your review. At Palm House we provide 80mb per day at no cost. Once you exceed that limit then you may purchase additional mbs with your credit card. Most hotels in Cape Town and around the world within the 3-4 star bracket operate in a similar way. Kind regards Shaun Lawrence General Manager More

Excellent all around. You could improve your culinary offerings from the mundane to more interesting stuff. Also, since it was Capetown's cold season, the rooms were unbearably cold. Although the downstairs room had heating or a fire, the bedrooms were freezing. Perhaps some space heaters during the cold season. The staff were exceptionally helpful and kind.

On arrival we were greeted well and made to feel very welcome. Room was luxurious and very comfortable with separate well appointed lounge and bedroom with all amenities. We had a most delicious supper and a delightful breakfast. Staff excellent providing good service. Consequently we were reluctant to check out. Would we come again? Absolutely yes!
