We arrived from our safari week to 4 days of luxury in this small boutique hotel in beautiful Capetown. We had arranged for a guide for one day, but on our free days the staff at the hotel were most helpful advising us about transportation, places to visit, where to eat, making reservations, calling cabs. The breakfasts were sensational. We... More

From the time we walked in the door, to the time we left, Dene & her team couldn't do enough for us. They assisted with things to do, places to eat & any request that would help make our first time in South Africa an enjoyable one. We will stay there again when next in Cape Town.

We stayed at Derwent House for the first four nights of our honeymoon and it was one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. Our room was brilliant, with windows on two sides and beautiful views of Table Mountain. The staff were especially helpful and friendly. Really liked sitting in the hot tub, and despite the water being... More

We stayed at the Derwent house for 3 nights in October on our first visit to Cape Town. Carol helped us with the booking and was very helpful in recommending restaurants and activities and made the booking process very easy. We arrived at the hotel 20 minutes before check in so we had to wait a bit before we were... More

We stayed at Derwent House for four nights at the start of our honeymoon. Everything about our stay was great. The hotel is beautifully decorated and maintained, and really well located for all the restaurants and bars on Kloof and Long Street. Bedrooms are a good size, with lots of nice little touches like free port in the evenings and... More

We stayed for three nights at the start of our honeymoon. We couldn't have been happier with our hotel choice. The staff were so friendly and attentive and the breakfasts absolutely lovely (I recommend the marmite soldiers!). The general feel and decor of the communal rooms was great - so unique and relaxing. Sadly it was too cold to use... More

We found Derwent House on tripadvisor and so glad we did. The home is beautiful, inspirational and relaxing. We only had 2 nights there but loved Cape Town so much that one day we will return and will definitely stay at Derwent House again. The staff was friendly and available for anything we needed which we didn't because they already... More

My husband and I stayed at the Derwent House for three nights and we wish we could have extended our stay! This place has it all . . . photos do not do it justice. The room (#1) was very clean, stylish (but simple -- not garish), and quiet. Our room faced the street, but we also had a little... More

Our stay at Derwent House went splendidly. We enjoyed a perfectly small, cozy and private room at the back of the side building. No complaints at all. Service was wonderful. The staff was more than helpful, I could not have enjoyed myself more anywhere else. And the breakfast! Delicious! Location was perfect. And the area was peaceful. I wished I... More

We stayed at Derwent House TWICE during our stay in Capetown. I had booked for our first three nights to be there and then we returned to Derwent House after our trip out to the Garden Route because we loved it so much. Initially we had a room in the main house with a balcony and view of the mountain... More
