Upon arrival I received a warm welcome and all the information needed to get familiar with Cape Town. The accommodation was perfect, especially the garden and the balcony were amazing. Definitely worth recommending to others!

The free breakfast, coffee/ tea, satellite TV, and the free computer were all a... More
