They are extremely helpful and reservated whale tours, restaurants, taxis etc. We were there 9 days and had a great time. We had a fine room and very good breakfast. Used... More

My mother and I had a great stay at this guesthouse. The staff were all really friendly and went out of their way to help us with advice on activities and how to get around Cape Town. The rooms were clean and comfortable and well equipped with all we needed, and we had a delicious freshly cooked breakfast. We also... More

Very friendly, clean and cozy place. Perfect location, quiet neighborhood. Good communication with all the staff there. Loved the breakfast, the decor, the brightness of everything. I will definitely come back if I ever go back to Cape Town.

Think the title says it all....Once we parked our hire car outside all the staff were helpful and friendly. Provided maps and advice. We walked loads from here but during the night a taxi was about 60r from the harbour. They have a computer and printer for use which was very useful and a small book exchange. The room was... More

The rooms are lovely and big with modern bathrooms. Our Cape Town office is in the V&A so the location is perfect for us when we come down from JHB. Breakfast is very good and the coffee sublime! The staff are accomodating and saw to our every request (late checkout for my hungover business partner!)

What a wonderful, tranquil oasis to arrive at after that hellish long flight from the States. The staff were caring and engaging. They went out of their way to make my arrival easier, even offering to arrange a rental car and meet me at the airport. My room was tastefully furnished, airy and clean. The pool area inviting and beautifully... More
