What makes a stay-over memorable is cleanliness, friendliness, cosiness, and a great breakfast to start the new day. This place scored top points on all these. Thanks so much, and a special thanks to the three ladies who worked to make sure it all happened.

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to visit Cape Town. We purchased the Kingslyn package that included three days of planned activities. We couldn't be more pleased. Birgit , the manager arranged our activities after taking into consideration what we wanted to do, the weather, and what else was happening in Cape Town. She arranged surprises for my... More

Our room was overlooking the street and therefore noisy with the windows open. However, with the windows shut it was fine. Wi fi works very well. Only negative was a very noisy... More

Nice place to stay at during holidays. The place is not far from the stadium, the water front and resturants. Best location for a very nice family holiday. The room was very clean and felt at home. I will call again.

Everywhere was accessible... More

A place where you can get about CT easily as it centrally located. Very warm staff, excellent breakfast. Spacious, comfortable and clean bedrooms. It is a beautiful, old house, but with this beauty, sometimes comes creaky floorboards... this however can be experienced as part the 'Gem' of the quaint old house.

Very friendly staff, esp. the female manager from Austria. The room was very spacious and equipped with everything you need for a short stay. Parking is next to the house and for free. Full and very good breakfast service.
