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

Situated in Greenpoint, a very quiet area close to everything (beaches, city center and Waterfront) I discovered some years ago, the perfect guest house which has become my home in CT... This year, Cape Standard has grown...and is even better! It looks like the lovely houses you can find in the Spanish Mediterranean islands (Mallorca, Menorca or Ibiza) Staff ...just... 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

Good location, good service, very nice staff, rooms well furnished, excellent breakfast. What else would you ask for? Every time we come to Capetown this place is our home away from home. And we have recommended it to many friends who became regulars like us. Until our next visit!

So I haven't booked into the Cape Standard in a while as my trips to SA have been so short I have stayed with family, but seeing this was going to be a 1 month business trip I decided we all needed space and tranquility! And so I rang Margot! And as per usual she came to my aid! Cape... More

We spent 6 nights and very much enjoyed our stay! The room was light, had a small veranda with view to the pool and we liked the well chosen furniture and its clean but comfortable style a lot! The location is quiet and yet perfect to explore Cape Town - we actually walked to the waterfront a couple of times.... More
