Stayed here for 3 nights visiting Cape Town. We stayed in Villa 2 just off the main building. Really comfortable roomy room. Only a 15 minute stroll to the V&A waterfront in a nice quiet area. Breakfast was lovely, mixture of continental or hot breakfast which was perfect. As we came in winter we couldn't use the pool but it... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and I wish I could have stayed longer. The owner and his staff were amazing. The breakfasts in the morning was more than enough. Location will be as good as any other. Honestly a must stay if you visit Cape Town.

Cape Standard is conveniently located and made it very easy for us to get around; pretty much everything was about 10-15 minutes away. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and gave us some great recommendations for places to see and things to do in the evenings; as well as arranged a great tour guide to take us out to...

Hi Anisha Thank you very much for the wonderful review It was a real pleasure having you and the group stay with us at the Villa. It really is a special place here in Cape Town. Load shedding is really an inconvenience, that's understandable. Even though this is out of our control we try our best to make things manageable... More

Very friendly staff and eager to help. Unfortunately we had no power on the first night so didn't help with darkness and no lighting till the next day. Breakfast very average. With heavy winds blowing, didn't really get a chance to sit outside and enjoy the garden.

We are sorry to read that you did not have a great stay. Unfortunately, as you say, there were howling gale force winds that made everything in Cape Town seem miserable on both days you stayed with us. And probably one of the coldest spells Cape Town has ever known. On top of that the one night the electricity cables... More

In June we stayed 3 nights at the Cape Standard guesthouse. This was our first stop during a 3 week trip through SA. We found the Cape Standard the perfect starting point to discover cape town. With a central but still quiet location we had easy access to the city. The rooms are perfect, the staff is extremely friendly and... More

I had a great stay at Cape Standard in Cape Town. Although I have reserved the annex room, Margot upgraded me to a better room due the construction noise next to the hotel. My room was comfortable, clean, modern decorated; and the shower had a good pressure. The breakfast had a good variety and the staff was always polite and... More

We had a perfect stay at the Cape Standard. Helpful staff, beautiful rooms, great breakfast! We could walk to the city centre and a taxi to Waterfront took us only a few minutes. This place has everything a proper boutique hotel should have!

We spend 9 wonderful days there and it was awesome. Margot and team was fantastic, helpful, lovely . The room was beautiful, clean. No complaints at all. Had to be there in summer one day to enjoy the pool and the sun..The area is safe and near to everything required for a lovely holiday. Great Guest-house in Capetown.

We were a little concerned when the taxi dropped us off at the Cape standard as the location appeared to be a bit out of town and although the appearance was lovely it looked more like a typical home rather than hotel. We needed have worried. As soon as we stepped inside we instantly loved the place. It had a... More
