Peaceful with excellent facilities yet close to action when wanted. A friendly charming vacation where you get to know the staff by name and feel comfortably at home. Carol has created a place that will definitely be on our return soon list. Thank you for a special time to Jane, Monica and Philip.

I have stayed regularly at this hotel for over 10 years on business trips to Cape Town. I have always been met with a warm welcome and the Hotel is very comfortable and the rooms spacious. It is worth dining-in at least once as the current chef is excellent and the wine list good.

We were received in a friendly and professional way. All staff we encountered during our stay were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable with all needed to make the stay enjoyable. We really enjoyed our wake-up coffee every morning. Gowns were good quality not the usual toweling material.
