40 Winks is tucked into a small street behind the main road through Green Point and is within walking distance of the stadium--ideal if you plan to attend an event or concert there, which is what we did. The rooms are nicely kitted out, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. There was a problem with the water while we were... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and the room was very comfortable with pleasant decor. However, we found that the house keeping in the room very erratic, (towels not being replaced, 1 bathrobe, tea/coffee not topped up and no ice in the fridge etc. ) the breakfast was very poor and cold and not topped up fast enough. Seating was... More

Clean central quirkey I have used this place before. I like it because it's central and easy access to the rest of the city. It's not 4 star but the price is right for the standard offered. Can be I bit difficult to find

I stayed at this Guest House when on a business trip in February 2015. Room was clean and a good size. The Guest House is also situated in a beautiful part of Cape Town where one can feel safe at night. Breakfast was a very pleasant experience in the morning. The only real issue I have with this Guest House... More

After reading a couple of reviews on this accommodation myself and my partner were dreading what the 7 nights we had booked would have in store for us. Upon arrival into 40 Winks we were met by the polar opposite of what had been written in previous reviews; the room was a fantastic size, clean and with well maintained amenities... More

Worse place ever. The room looked ok, but when I came back in the evening after dinner, the remote for the outside gate did not work. Nobody responded to the gate buzzer as apparently there is no night staff. I called the hotel phone number and was told someone would be there within 15 minutes... An hour later I was... More

We booked an apartment in this hotel for 5 nights. Pictures on the website were good. They said "5 minutes from the center and 10 minutes from the ocean". In fact the appartment was on the Main Road (4 lines) very noisy. Just not possible to open a window! The appart himself was "technically" okay but really not nice, a... More

The description and pictures of the apartment has nothing to do with what you actually get. We ended up in an apartment next to a high trafic road, far from the guesthouse, noisy and dusty. We decide to leave and had to find another place to stay. Worst thing is that despite very nice attempts to get a partial refund,... More

I stayed here for 6 nights. The service was good and staff were pleasant. The room was pretty basic and the décor has a lot to be desired. It was like sleeping in your grandmas living room. There were nick nacks everywhere. The internet service was poor as the only place I could access was sitting outside the room. There... More
