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

Really enjoyed the 1 week stay at the villa. Beautiful, clean room with lovely decor and plenty of space. Bed was comfortable and loved the shower and bathroom. Wifi and TV average. Staff very friendly and accommodating with any request. Served a nice breakfast and good service all round. Good location, would not hesitate to revisit :)

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
