Apart from the spacious rooms and comfortable beds, the staff are a joy! Although I didn't make use of the dinner facility while I was there, the breakfasts are fantastic. It's been a while since I had proper free range eggs, and the omelette on Sunday morning was light and delicious. Well done, all :)

Lovely place to stay. The room was clean and spacious. Staff were super-friendly and very helpful. Just one negative remark: the hotel is distant from downtown or Water-Front and the shuttle is very expensive. Normal taxis are a little cheaper, but in any case a return trip to downtown costs the same than the price of the room itself. So,... More

Lovely place to stay and we had an amazing view, albeit via a small window. The rooms were adequate and spacious and we enjoyed our short stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would consider staying there again if we are in the area.

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.
