If you seek "the" accomodation, with highest quality, privacy and best service, Compass House is the place to stay. Sensational view, great room and Lounge area, fantastic outdoor area and pool with almost olympic size. Unbeatable!

What a place. My girlfriend and I enjoyed every minute in this fabulous place.

If you are looking for a safe, stunning looking and super quiet place just minutes away from the city center, with an infinity pool overlooking Table Bay, Compasshouse is the place! It is a retreat of luxury in simplicity and good taste. Whether flying solo, on honeymoon or business trip, you will not go wrong with Compasshouse!

Back to Cape Town for business I can't make any better choice then this Hotel. Location, Service, Interior Design. The longest POOL in town and fatastic massages in their SPA. European quality (swiss management) here in Africa, what else do you want. See you again, in few weeks!
