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

I stayed at this guest house with my boyfriend in March 2013. It is a chic and contemporary boutique style hotel. Our room was very bright and spacious, really clean and really quiet. It was an ideal base in Cape town. There are lots of restaurants within a short walking distance and from our balcony there was a great view... More

We stayed at the Derwent House for one week this month and absolutely loved our stay. Carol, the owner was so helpful in both arranging our stay, but also advising us on day tours (shark cage diving, Cape tour and Robben Island) and orienting us to the city. She also arranged airport pickup and return. Although we didn't actually get... More

We stayed at the Derwent's apartment for 6 nights in July and loved it. The staff went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed and we're so helpful in booking excursions, dinners, taxis, etc. The apartment itself is quite nice and not in a dodgy building as another review had stated. We loved having... More

This is truly a home away from home. A very friendly and helpful staff ensures that you are always comfortable. The place itself is stunning - maybe one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. In addition, you have everything you need or want to see just outside the door even though it is in a quiet neighbourhood.
