This was one of the worst places I have ever been in. 1. The showers don't work properly, open the hot water and it's boiling, than after 2 min the shower goes ice cold. 2. The rooms are ice cold and the curtains don't close properly. 3. And if you are sharing a room there is no bathroom door. 4.... More

It is difficult if not impossible to find pet Friendly accommodation In the Northern suburbs of Cape Town. When I came across 3 Palms offering pet-friendly accommodation I was so happy. The room was tidy and clean but small taking into account that we had 2 doggies with us. The upside was that the room had an enclosed garden nook... More

The staff is friendly. Nice pool, about the breakfast I cannot comment, we left both mornings before breakfast was served.The poor flow of the hot water was a big problem. Impossible to get it to a temperature to shower with even when I shaved I gave up an shved and washed myself with cold water.

Booked for 2 nights and we're surprised that my room was allocated to another guest after my first night. My personal belongings were taken from my room - where it was packed in my cupboard. Not packed in my suitcase and loosely handed to me. Our business party was spilt and I was then allocated to another guesthouse. This was... More

Arriving mid-afternoon I was not impressed with the dirty state of the guest house, although a large party of guests had checked out that morning. Perhaps the common areas where new guests were arriving should have been cleaned up first to create a better first impression. Our room was unbearably hot and with NO windows in the bedroom it was...

Me and my colleague have been there for 2 night. We felt like at home. Breakfast was excellent and we had good dinners as well. The owners Ernst and Mara were so nice with us. Relaxing conversations in front of a glass of wine or beer. Price really reasonable. Vini from Italy.

What an awesome guesthouse. The most friendly owners and staff. The rooms are of very high standards and always clean. We stayed for 4 days and it was and was a very enjoyable experience. Ernst and Mara, thank you very much for everything. Ask Ernst to braai some fish, he can.
