I have done a fair amount of traveling in my life, and I have never been treated as wonderfully as I was at The Cape Standard. The staff simply blew me away. From the first moment I arrived, I was greeted with nothing but warmth and a hospitality that truly went above and beyond. My friend missed her flight, which... More

Central, peaceful and great service in a city that doesn't know the meaning of the word. Love The Cape Standard, rooms are big, breakfast top notch but I think the best thing is the sense of peace the place has. They do however need to get more jacked up for load shedding. Candles in the room just ain't gonna cut... More

We have stayed at Cape Standard guest house for 8 days in April and enjoyed our vacation. The staff have been very helpful making reservation for restaurants, wine tour and giving us suggestions. The place is conveniently located, 20 minutes walking to the water front and not too far from the boulevard where you can get to convenience store, ice... More

Thanks for your compliments. All our rooms are different and am happy that we were able to find you a room that you really liked. A lot of our regular guests prefer the downstairs rooms because they have private balconies. We look forward to seeing you back again. More

Location was very conveniently located breakfast was more than what we expected rooms were comfortable although a little dated ie soap dish holder and bathroom tissue holder were lose to falling off the wall, exterior windows and doors need to be replaced sometime soon but in all, it was very acceptable and cozy.

Thank you for your feedback. After an extremely hectic season at the Cape Standard we have already begun the replacement program as winter approaches. The good news is that we will be introducing some wonderful new design elements that will really lift the product and take it into a slightly different direction. Watch this space! More

We´ve been to the Cape Standard several times now.... for many reasons! It´s based in Green Point which we think is the perfect location in Capetown to have easy access to all parts of Capetown. Town house style with an urban hip chic yet cosy and laid back. David & staff are always great and help you get around and... More

We stayed here two years ago, on our return we were treated like old friends. We had two visits this time in February and March. The staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. There are four great new rooms in the house, which has been purchased next door and a great swimming pool surrounded by a small, well kept... More

Stayed 4 nights here, in one of the larger rooms overlooking the pool. Rooms lovely and bright, the towels were great! (Have even ordered some!) Staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice breakfast. Easy walk to the hop-on hop-off bus. Highly recommended!

We both just want to thank David, Margot and the staff for the amazing hospitality and always going that extra mile for us. Cape standard really is our home away from home. We sleep better there than we do at home. We can't thank you enough in words for everything.

What a lovely guest house! The style is warm and inviting and invokes a calm oasis. Rooms are spacious and I loved the veranda! Staff is friendly and very helpful. A true gem nestled up the hill. Thank you!

Always great to hear from people who connect with our very carefully crafted style and design of the Cape Standard. We are currently in the design process of doing a revamp which we will tackle through winter to be ready for the next season. Thank you! More
