My boyfriend and I stayed at Parker Cottage for six nights and would 100% recommend it as an excellent place to stay in Cape Town. Parker Cottage is set in a stunning, beautifully laid out building, the rooms are great and everything is very well thought through. There are two stunning living rooms you can sit in and help yourself... More

My wife and I stayed at Parker Cottage for three nights during a recent visit to Cape Town. The facility is charming and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They sat down with us as soon as we arrived to help us plan our activities and dinners. We found the location perfect, whether you are getting on the motorway... More

So we returned, full of enthusiasm to this fantastic B and B in Cape Town, we have sent work colleagues and friends alike since our first visit three years ago. We were confident of that recommendation and remain so!! You see, this is so much more than a B and B! I travel extensively for work and have come to... More

Every thing we read about this Bed and Breakfast on Trip Advisor was true, the breakfasts were a delight each morning, the rooms were excellent, very clean spacious and well appointed. The staff were just perfect at all levels, from the maids to the managers. We were made so welcome on arrival. The manager was very happy to go through... More

This was our first trip to Cape Town and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Complimentary wine evenings, wonderful breakfast, exceptionally helpful and friendly staff, beautifully restored house and spotlessly clean - you get the picture! Cape Town is a wonderful city and it was enhanced by Parker Cottage even more! What the owners believe... More

We just spent 4 days at Parkers in the "double bedrooms" (2 separate rooms with 2 bathrooms as we are a family of 4). It was just perfect. It's like spending time in your own family house, but with an amazing breakfast served and a lot of help with suggestions on where to go and eat. They are very attentive... More

I cannot thank Parker cottage and their staff enough for such a lovely stay! I stayed back in February with 3 work friends that had previously stayed and their praise of the place didn't do it justice! The rooms we stayed in was pure luxury especially the bath and breakfast delicious but what really made my stay amazing was the... More

This was our first trip to South Africa and we were so glad we booked Parker Cottage for our short stay in Cape Town! Chris picked us up from the airport and gave us a mini tour of the city as we drove in. When we arrived, we basically just sat on the veranda while everyone took care of us:... More

We spent four nights at Parker Cottage and wish we could have stayed longer. The place is beautifully appointed in a very nice location close to the center of town. Having traveled extensively throughout the world, we can say that the level of hospitality we received at PC is unmatched. Its staff, Penny, Diane, Thomas are the best, they are... More

We had the pleasure to spend our last night of our South Africa travel at Parker Cottage - and it was wonderful! Starting with the warm welcome and the cold beer everything was perfect: the location close to Kloof Street, the rooms and the fantastic breakfast in the beautiful garden in front of the house. The staff was very helpful!... More
