Staff looked after us very well, nothing was too much trouble. The view of the back of Table Mountain from the comfort of our bed was an absolute treat. Guests arriving late was a little annoying as they woke us up but then it was possibly due to the location of our room.

We are a family of 3, our son is 18 months old. We found that the family cottage was a bit small and the bathroom was very small. I must admit we were somewhat disappointed with the size of the cottage. My son still drinks a bottle and we were unable to warm his milk - you should consider having... More

Very friendly staff and spacious, clean rooms! The neighborhood is safe, allowing for safe afternoon walks and great location as well; can walk to nearby restaurants and malls easily. The food is OK as well.

Peaceful atmosphere. Room service excellent. Rooms are very spacious. Staff were friendly and assisted eagerly when help was required. I can and will recommend Palm House to all who needs accommodation in that area.

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
