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

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

A lovely family environment whilst maintaining complete privacy. The area is very safe and close to a good suburban shopping centre. The retaurant - a short walk across a... More

Ascot Gardens has become one of our standard resorts for groups to stay when we are in the Cape area. Quiet and close to a well stocked supermarket it offers a welcome rest during trips. There is also a small restaurant close by for those who do not wish to do all their cooking themselves. The car - or motorcycles... More

Very comfortable, clean and safe. We stayed in the African Suite which was beautifully furnished and spacious. In close proximity to all shops and restuarants. Safe surroundings in the leafy suburb. Will definitely be back on our next trip.
