We stayed at Derwent House 3rd October - 10th October. We had an apartment at the rear of the main house which is not connected to the main building and is accessed via a secured side gate. The apartment had everything we needed for our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children) and we had unrestricted access to all... More

we stayed at Derwent only three days a week ago and if we would have known that it was that charming we would have booked for a longer stay. The staff is soon welcoming and relax that you feel like home. The room that we had, although a bit small, was very well decorated and comfortable. The location of the... More

Was at Derwent House for two nights at the end of my holiday, this is my 4th time to Cape Town and my second time at a CT boutique hotel. Arrived late at night after a lovely dinner at Greenhouse & was shown to my room (no.1) immediately with no fuss. The room felt small but cozy, I could not... More

I absolutely loved my stay at this boutique Hotel in Cape Town. I had read all the positive reviews so was expecting a lot and this place certainly didn't disappoint. The staff were lovely and helpful and gave lots of good travel advice, booked taxis and went out of their way to make my stay very enjoyable. After travelling the... More

After staying in a noisy downtown location in Cape Town, the residential location of this hotel was a welcome reprieve. Unlike chain hotels where you could be anywhere, you definitely know you are in South Africa while staying here. The decor is modern and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The staff are very welcoming... More

All the staff here are very friendly and helpful. The location is in the old part of town near to Kloof and Long Streets. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby with character. The room we had was the smallest of any on our trip but adequate. It had two balconies to sit on but the views out weren't that great... More

I am an ex-South African who visits regularly, but usually stays closer to the sea. I was nervous that I would be disappointed to be in a more residential area. Was I wrong! Derwent House manages to be fresh, contemporary and stylish, while still being incredibly welcoming and unpretentious. Everything is of the highest quality and the owners and staff... More

I went for the second time to the Derwent House and again it was the best home away from home. This hotel is the perfect combination for me between a B&B and a hotel. The hotel is well decorated and is located perfectly near Kloofstreet. The staff is very helpfull. Hope to return soon!

As a solo traveller I was a little apprehensive staying on my own in Cape Town but they put me at ease straight away. Thankfully Derwent House arranged a transfer from the airport. On arrival everyone was very friendly and couldn't do more for each resident. They organised trips for me and informed me where I can walk safely and... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this perfectly located 'home away from home'. It is a fantastic little hotel, very stylish and chic, the staff are wonderfully friendly and know what hospitality is all about. Rooms are beautifully appointed and immaculate as are the lounges and pool. Breakfast was amazing too. I spend half of my life in hotels and... More
