Lovely hotel. Great staff, room and breakfast. Would highly reccomend this hotel if you wanted a top quality boutique hotel. All aspects of the venue were great. The staff couldn't do enough for us and only a three min walk to some great bars and restaurants.

What a very nice place in Capetown, lovely situated in a quiet area. We like walking so we were in 1 hour walk in the Waterfront. But with a taxi or car it is 10 minutes. The rooms are perfect, with a nice small garden. The breakfast was 100% super great! Also we felt ourselves very welcome|! One of the... More

This is a very comfortable place to stay in Cape Town. As soon as you go through the security gate you feel relaxed, safe and looked after.
