We loved this little Gem. We were out and about a lot but it is right downtown and has a great restaurant. People dining at the next table were staying at the Taj that has a cool bar but not much of a menu. The staff were very accommodating for us and our son. Great suite, very stylish.

My Wife and I had a deluxe Double room that offered a view of Table Mountain, the room was well appointed and the ensuite was very good. Our rate included breakfast which gave you a choice of an excellent buffet plus a broad choice of cooked items from the menu. The hotel also has an excellent restaurant which offers dinner... More

Family holiday ruined by incompetence and unfriendly staff who failed to admit to not booking the right rooms and who told me if I had an issue I should just pack up and leave. a holiday I was looking forward to ended up being the only holiday I wanted to end. I really Thank you for this Tracy.

We do apologise for the confusion – since you booked, the description of the rooms on their site has since been amended and corrected in order for this not to happen again.

Awesome location... right in the heart of the town. Pretty good rooms at a very fair rate compared to similar class hotels in the area. Friendly staff though abit slow. But not a deal breaker. Overall enjoying myself here. Plus a really cosy restaurant.

Nice place, good restaurant, very nice people! The room was excellent as was its amenities! It has a parking place near the hotel with an entrance direct to the lobby. I do recommend staying there! They were really nice to us even when we needed to make calls for some arrangements.

I stayed at this hotel on a quick business trip and found the location to be excellent. Cape Town is unlike Johannesburg- in that places are relatively close by- but the situation of the hotel is isle to most attractions. The room I stayed in was tiny- however I was literally only sleeping there- so it didn't bother me too... More

The Townhouse Hotel was a nice place to stay while in Cape Town. The people at the front desk were very helpful as were the wait staff in the restaurant. My room was nicely appointed, a bit small but adequate. The room was very clean, the sheets, pillows etc were comfortable and there was a large bathtub as well as... More

I stayed here as a guest of the Cape Town Fringe and was really impressed. The room was spacious, decorated to a very high standard and spotlessly clean with a huge, comfortable bed and freestanding bath. Given how central it is, it was very quiet at night and I slept like a baby every night. Breakfast was fantastic. Staff went... More
