We stayed here for 2 nights in October. You don't have just a room but a whole house to stay in with a pool. So in terms of space you got plenty! You have secure parking in front of the door, free WiFi and cold drinks are available against an honest price. And the breakfast is just awesome! A lot... More

After touring Capetown and the Garden route for 16 days, we had one last day before returning to Boston. 56 Forest Drive with it's 2BR/2Bath apartment and the adjacent garden studio was perfect for relaxing and packing for the trip home. Large bathrooms, bedrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen were appreciated. The ample and delicious breakfast served within the complex... More

We have enjoyed our time at no 56. It is very spacious and we were so pleased to have a full self-catering kitchen. We could eat in a couple of times and enjoy the soccer matches on DSTV. Nancy was very accommodating, cleaning at times that suited us. All in all a good experience and I'm sure we will be... More

I've been staying in this structure and I have to say that the place is really quite. On the way from the airport and at 20 min driving from the Waterfront. The place is really nice but a bad surprise was waiting for me as soon as I get into the shower. Water was cold and there has not been... More

We booked the room for one night after arriving in Capetown in the evening. The B&B is a short drive from the airport and its neighborhood is quiet but feels safe. The room we got is a bit small but well equipped. Breakfast was good though we were disappointed with their dinner as we had waited for more than 20... More
