Swedish family, of 6 persons from 12 - 70 years. Cape Standard was a great experience. After 1 week in bungalos and African safari-places in Zimbabwe and Botswana it was perfect to land in just Cape Standard. Cool, clean, fresh design with well chosen special interior objects. This is the perfect place if you want a nice clean and quiet... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a great base being only a 20 minute walk from the Waterfront. Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed and had everything we needed. Breakfast was very good and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It was so nice to come back to port, sherry and nibbles after an... More

Super friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully decorated little guesthouse in safe & quiet neighbourhood. Excellent breakfast. Not cheap, but def. worth the price. Good 20 min. walk to the Waterfront. Some building noise because of reshaping of pool area

The breakfast was wonderful - one of the best we had in the trip and the rooms were very big and very clean and the decor was lovely. Margot was extremely helpful with recommendations and with helpful tips. The only comment I... More

We recently stayed at Cape Standard for a full week. The staff were amazing - very professional & nothing was too much trouble. It's quite a walk to the City Bowl or V & A Waterfront, so best to hire a car. Pleasant gardens and surroundings in a safe area.

I stayed only 1 night. This hotel doesn't look much from the outside but you will be suprised. It's beautiful, very clean, has lovely breakfast and great staff too. Nice neighbourhood as well, it wasn't difficult to find from the waterfront. My room was quite cosy though I could hear people arriving or walking past my door, the bed very... More

My wife and I stayed at the Cape Standard B&B for 4 nights from September 14th 2014. It's run by David and Margot who have three very attentive staff who help ensure that each traveller has a wonderful stay.

Even if we did only stay for 1 night, we enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. The hotel and rooms are well designed and comfortable. Also important to mention the highly convenient and spacy showers. The location is well accessible via MyCity, but also with car or by foot. Come back.
