We booked two nights in this hotel but ended up adding two more nights. We enjoyed Kaapstad a lot and this hotel was the perfect stay. Room was nice and light with modern decor, just like the rest of the hotel. The outside garden is a wonderful place to hang out and the breakfast was luscious. When it comes to... More

What a great boutique Hotel. As you walk in, you instantly realise that great attention went into designing this hotel. straight lines and modern furniture give an air of class to the hotel but wait...what's that further in? as you walk further into the room you are greeted by a artistic memorylane of old phones, cameras and memorabilia, all wrapped...

Started off by ordering a car through the hotel to pick us up from the airport. Hotel forgot to order the car for us and instead of sorting the issue out for us, they gave us a couple of phone numbers to organise a driver ourselves. Design of the rooms and living room are nice and modern. Service at breakfast... More

The staff at this place will go above and beyond. There is nothing they wont do to make the guests happy. They anticipate your needs which is so hard to find these days. The hotel is also very beautiful and clean. Only improvements I could suggest would be for better wifi connection and toiletries selection. Other than that this place... More

I had never stayed in a small boutique hotel before so I was a little worried. I loved the Villa Zest and Bianca , Gilbert and all the staff went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. Breakfast is lovely with many nice options, the rooms are spacious and nicely done. True there is little privacy... More

We parked our overworked campervan in a spot near the entrance way and enjoyed the comforts offered up by this hotel. It was only a 10 minute walk to the wonderful waterfront and we never felt that it was unsafe even returning late at night. Almost everything you are going to want to do or see in Cape Town can...

This establishment is well located. Staff are most welcoming, helpful & friendly. The bedroom was a good size and tastefully furnished. We did not find the open plan bedroom style a problem at all. The small touches of chocolates and welcoming card did not go unnoticed. Has well sized lounge with view over the pool. Only negative is no off... More

This guesthouse is wonderful. It is chic and stylish and a bit quirky. Our room was a studio room. The facilities were great although a bit disappointed there was no fridge to chill water etc but that is my only negative point.It had everything else you needed and if you wanted something else, they were always available to help you....
