What a relaxed peacefull gem of a holiday getaway. The people are fantastic, the breakfast so mouthwatering, the service was absolutely outstanding, modern sophisticated beautiful environment you guys are running an absolutely fantastic establishment. There is absolutely no room for improvement unless you add five more stars to your rating! Ten out of ten!

What I love the most about the Cape standard is from the moment you arrive the hosts makes you feel so welcome and comfortable. The small things, attentive to your needs and the relationships you form with then is what keeps us going back. The rooms are spacious, and I always judge the quality of a guest house by the...

The staff was really welcoming and helpful. We had a beautiful room near the pool, renewed recently and nicely decorated. Breakfast was excellent, with eggs and bacon, fresh fruits... More

My friend and I stayed in this wonderful guest house for 4 nights. The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful and very friendly, room spotlessly clean. Breakfast excellent, the best poached eggs I have tasted and the garden area and pool was just so relaxing. Thank you for a memorable stay. June Thomson (England)

Great service from all the staff at this hotel. The garden is a peaceful retreat with a pool larger than expected for a small property. It seems they have plenty repeat customers, so they must be doing things right. We had a nice room, 5, on the front. The only issues we had was storage is minimal. The wardrobe contained... More

Pleasant 5night stay here. Comfortable with attractive outside area including smal pool. Our room number 5 was spacious, but other rooms may be smaller. Excellent breakfast al fresco. Friendly and helpful staff. A bit off centre, but the wonderful VA Waterfront only a 20 minute walk. Adequate choice of dining establishments within 15 minutes walk including top rated Hussar Grill.... More
