I had a pleasant stay at 17 on Loader. The beds are comfy the rooms are relatively spacious and the environment is peaceful. I would definitely consider 17 on Loader again in the future and have already recommended it to some friends of mine. Thank you.

I had to cram 3 days & 2 nights of sightseeing, shopping and partying in cape town. 17 on loader was a great place to unwind after each day - Great location - walking distance from Long street, lovely view of table mountain and the city from the roof top... Would definitely go back...

Clean rooms, great location to all the Die Waterkant restaurants and bars. They could do with a little more attention to service.

I stayed in a previous guest house which was supposedly one star higher, but I found 17 on Loader to be very modern, clean and with very good facilities. It is also located in a great location with commanding views from the roof top terrace. I received a pre-arrival email from Ben the live in Manager which was very professional... More

I actually arrived sick at the guesthouse and we had booked room 17 C which doesn't have external windows and no air-conditioning. The room is very small and feels a little claustrophobic. The staff was very attentive and Benjamin tried his best to get us another room as we had booked for four nights. He actually managed to get us... More

It was very conveniently located in a fun and interesting central neighbourhood. Our room was pretty and beautifully decorated. In fact, the whole hotel was beautiful, clean, and quiet.

the room is so small that there is no place for your suitecase. The staff is very helpfull and nice. The location is very good. The breakfast was very poor. Every day different (1 croissant + 1 roll one day, 2 croissants the other day and that for 2 persons!!). Good secure parking behind the building.
