A really pleasant stay in a centrally conveniant location. Rooms were spacious and well appointed and offered enough comforts for a short stay. Close to ICC and Waterfront- and security seemed adequate.

When we were looking for places to stay in Cape Town, location was key for us to be able to easily get around the city. Unless you're on the waterfront (where prices are much higher), this location can't be beat. It's a 15 minute walk into the water front and you're next to a metro stop and many restaurants as...

It is a hotel made by big apartments with kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped (micro wave but not oven and flame). The bathroom is huge (tube and shower). Very clean and near V&A Waterfront, you can reach it walking. The place is safe and there is a safe parking outside. The only negative thing is that during night you... More

This is my 3rd visit to Oxford House and I love staying here. Centrally located, loads of safe parking and beautifully modern, clean, big rooms. Quiet area, but walking distance to a number of restaurants etc. So centrally located. I am so pleased that friends introduced me to them. Nathalie is always extremely friendly, efficient and helpful. Well done to... More

It was our first time visiting and it was good. One could always complain about costs, but compared to other places in CT this is value for money. Centrally located which is great. Will most probably be back.

We had an excellent time at Primi Oxford House. The location is great as it is within a walking distance to the V&A and to the city centre. Staff is friendly and always willing to help. Good value for money.

We have just departed from Oxford House - Our 2nd visit there - Once again a really enjoyable experience. The staff, location, rooms and above all the pricing make this establishment a winner.

Rooms are stylish and comfortable. Could do with a few finer touches - better pillows, better reception, water in the rooms, remotes for the TV, leaving light on in passage to get your key in the door. But other than that good value.

Lovely guesthouse in Greenpoint, Cape town. The location is wonderful and safe (near to Waterfront and different good restaurants (Manos)). The room was big, clean, new, modern.. We loved the bed, that was very comfortable and large. The bathroom was quite big and water was running properly. The shower did not have a screen, so it was quite a waterfall.... More
