My husband and I stayed at Villa Zest and was astonished at how exceptionally friendly the staff were. Their hospitality is what made the few days we stayed there most worth it. The room we stayed in was nicely decorated in modern furniture and was surprised to see an Eero Aarnio chair in the common area near the breakfast tables!... More

7 days at this hotel in June. Wonderful service and excellent accommodations. If I have to say something not great is the location, which was a good walk from the convention center and the city center where I had to spend most of my time. Short drive by taxi, but I like to walk when traveling to other places. But,... More

Modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Delicious breakfast, friendly welcoming staff. Highly recommended. Try not be on same level as dining room. Early morning kitchen prep did wake me earlier than hoped

We stayed at this Hotel for 5 nights in transit to our Safari. We had one of the larger rooms upstairs, I couldn't have been happier. The décor is very modern, room was totally clean with all supplies, including Hair Dryer. While the property was great, what really made this such an exceptional experience was the staff- thank you to... More

From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly and assisted by Michelle and Bianca. Their warmth and kindness in advising us in great places to eat and chill out was very helpful in our settling in. Breakfast is incredible and so were the lovely ladies serving and preparing it for us. My only regret is how short our stay... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Villa Zest for 4 nights and had an absolutely fantastic experience. I had stayed there 5 years previously and it was every bit as great as I remember it. The location is an excellent to use as a base for exploring Cape Town as well as for walking a few blocks down the... More

Small but perfectly formed in a great location, being walking distance to the town centre and the famous water front area. Helpful friendly staff gave great advice on both tours and restaurants and nothing was too much trouble to organize. I normally stay in big impersonal 4 star hotels for business and this made a pleasent change which I enjoyed... More

Very helpful staff. Good location. Clean rooms. Nice swimming pool with seating area. Excellent breakfasts. Nice communal living area with balcony. Stylish look and feel to the hotel. Our bedroom was quite small and packed full of cushions that took up valuable space. There was no mini fridge. And the en suite shower didn't have a proper door, just a... More

We stayed in the Villa Zest for 2 weeks - this small boutique hotel was just delightful as well as extremely well situated about 5 mins drive from the Conference Centre and near some excellent restaurants: we came for a conference and some holiday with family living in Cape Town... The Staff could not be more helpful, and did everything... More

I stayed for three days but the welcome started back in Britain before my trip as nothing was too much trouble. Very stylish hotel but also very comfortable (I liked the integrated bathroom!) and superb breakfasts. Good location as close to the hectic Waterfront but not on it. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely book again.
