Beautiful old b&b in a good location, just a few minutes from park which leads right to the centre of town. We enjoyed a bottle of wine on the balcony in warm evening air. Anne is a lovely host. She couldnt have been more helpful. If you are a light sleeper ask for an upstairs room. We were downstairs and... More

A gourgous little Guesthouse with a very cosy atmosphere. A particular emphasis is laying on small details, which makes the stay special. From the first impressions It is obvious that the house and its rooms were furnished with care. Furthermore the staff was always keen to help in every concern. Great place to stay if you are looking for a... More

Thanks to Anne for being the perfect host. A cup of coffee on arrival, and sandwiches prepared for me on my last day when I had to leave before breakfast for an early meeting. An exceptional restoration of one of Cape Town's historic buildings, with a charm and taste that takes you by surprise. Very close to the museum district,... More

We spent 2 nights at Six on Scott. Just off Buitenkant Street makes it an excellent location for some of central Cape Town's attractions such as the Fugard Theatre, District Six Museum and the Jewish and Holocaust Museum. And very close to the Garden shopping centre. Despite that, it was a very quiet location. Clean and simple, the room didn't... More

I stayed two weeks here and loved it. Anne and Andy couldn't be better hosts and the room was very nice and modern. Location is great as it's near the Garden Center and Dunkley Square. Definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Stayed here for 4 nights in this lovingly renovated house. Very spacious, high-ceilinged room with a pocket sized, well appointed and clean bathroom. Appreciated the tasteful decor (you won't find any overstuffed chesterfields or lacy doilies here), excellent breakfasts and the very helpful hosts. A minor quibble, but I could hear the click-click-click of the guests walking around upstairs on... More
