My wife and I stayed here in March on our first trip to SA. Stewart and his team could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The situation of the property is superb just under Table Mountain and there is a lovely small garden for relaxing and taking breakfast when the weather is fine. It is possible to walk into... More

We stayed for 2 nights in February. We had a rocky start finding the place but Denise made sure we settled in well and calmed our nerves. The place is amazing. There are so many little details which make the whole experience so personal. Handwritten welcome notes, staff so attentive and helpful and not to forget Stewart's breakfast special and... More

We stayed in Acorn house in January and were delighted by the lovely welcome from Stewart. Our room (also Stewart) was lovely and the breakfasts were fabulous! Stewart went out of way to help us make the most of our 5 night stay and we would have no hesitation in recommending this B & B to anyone.

I stayed at Acorn House for 5 days in February 2014 and am so glad that I did! The house is beautiful, the gardens are stunning and the service is better than any 5 star hotel. Beate, Stewart, Denise and all the "Acorns" make you feel truly welcome. Upon arrival over the weekend, Beate settled me in with a refreshing... More

It really fitted the bill. Stewart was enormously helpful and recommended perfect restaurants that really suited us both - a real mixture of Waterfront fun, Sea Point chic and steaks to die for at Nelson's Eye. Our room was a bit noisy but really it was a lovely place to arrive at after a long flight from the UK.
