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

Friendly staff. This guest house was very clean. The bedrooms were very cutes with lovely bathrooms. Well located in Capetown in a quiet and secured area . We recommend this address.The pool is small but nice.

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

It is a 4 star guest house not hotel which I think is different, as far as ratings go. Really convenient location for the city, V & A Waterfront and surrounds. My room was very comfortable, clean and attractive and there was soap, shower gel, coffee, tea etc. TV (only M-net - no DSTV which was a surprise) but the... More

Shoddy service, terrible breakfast, all staff finish at 4pm and only start again at 7am!! Owner never there. Towels frayed and quite frankly wouldn't let my dog sleep on them. Room was basically in the parking lot with cars shining their lights directly into your bed at night. Dreadful experience and more like a one star!! Baffled how they can... More

The aircon was not working so was moved to another room. Was given a talking to in the morning on why did I move rooms? not to sure as it was the night managers decision. The breakfast was uninspiring and can not see where the 4 stars come from. Will not visit again One towel for two guests and office... More
