This is the first, last and never again experience at Ascot Gardens Kings apartment. It was not up to the standard we expect for a holiday in South Africa. The apartment was quite shabby and requires updating. On arrival the apartment looked clean, but by the time we went to bed our feet were black underneath. There was dirt and... More

We stayed at ascot gardens with a large group of friends. It was convenient and the houses were well appointed - we were particularly pleased with the kitchen. A few problems - the plumbing was a bit annoying - sometimes a cold shower, the kitchen tap leaked and the toilet flushed for ages sometimes. The blinds in the room weren't... More

The location to access the city and surrounding attractions is excellent. The suite we stayed in was well appointed and had everything a self catering traveller requires but.... The mattress was extremely uncomfortable without much padding between the sheets and the bed springs. During our 7 day stay our bin was not emptied on 2 days. We had to ask... More

We found everything here first class. Very friendly and helpful hosts. A wonderful evening spent together with a fish brain. Excellent rooms, large, clean, and well maintained! We would definitely recommend to others!

She setting of this self catering establishment is in a residential area and very quaint setting indeed. Staff were extremely helpful and did try their best to please. Furniture is visibly a little tired and is need of replacement. I have to admit though that we were very comfortable and the garden is a little enchanting albeit with a few... More

We recently stayed in the King's Cottage at Ascot Gardens. It is the quintessential 'self-catering' property. For those not familiar with the 'self-catering' concept, it is where you rent a fully equipped property with the goal of doing most of you own cooking, laundry etc, and spending your travel funds on your side trips. Ascot Gardens fulfills the requirement perfectly.... More

We booked ascot gardens for only one reason and that was to be close to the relatives of our friend with whom we travelled. The place looked beautiful but it was way out of our budget and also far away from the city center but as I said we had this one reason to take it. So on the day... More

This time we stayed here for three weeks split between the start and finish of our 6-week holiday. The location is perfect, close to shops, restaurants etc. but also good accessibility for Constantia wine area, the peninsular and Cape Town itself, all within 20-25 minutes by car. The rooms and facilities are really very good and the welcome from Barry... More

This is the second time we have been to Ascot Gardens and we weren't disappointed! Brought our daughter and son in law and we all had a wonderful stay. The Poolside and Jack rooms were just what we needed.....clean and comfortable with our own private space outside . We could either mix with other guests or stay in our own... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ascot Gardens. We stayed in the poolside room, which had 2 single beds. We had booked the room with a double but on arrival were upgraded and told we could put the beds together. It wasn't too difficult to rearrange them, but might have been nice to come to the room already reorganized to... More
