Nice room, amazing pool, friendly staff + well located. Comprehensively ticked every box and quite easily exceeded expectations. (Was genuinely surprised to hear it was only 4 stars a couple of days into the stay) Overall very enjoyable and Carol Judge + the staff should be commended on creating such a welcoming energy.

This hotel is a little oasis of peace and tranquility, set within a stunning city. We were made to feel so welcome by the whole team. We stayed for four nights and enjoyed every moment, from the lovely room, to the fabulous breakfast and gorgeous swimming pool and hot tub. We have to give Vuyo a special mention for looking... More

This was a perfect location for us from which to explore Cape Town whilst staying in a safe part of town. Restaurants and shops were all within walking distance, taxis were inexpensive and the hotel itself was a jewel. A warm and friendly welcome awaited us, our room was ready early, the staff were very helpful and cheerful and we... More

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. I cannot recommend Derwent House more highly. The service is second to none, staff incredibly friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Great location, always clean and tidy with exceptional attention to detail. We asked to borrow some plastic cups/plates for a picnic and were presented with a picnic rucksack containing everything you coud possibly... More

We truly enjoyed our stay in Derwent House. The location is nice. It is just a couple of blocks away from Kloof street with restaurants, boutiques and bars and you can easily walk to city center. Breakfast was fantastic and kids especially liked the marshmallow and cookies jars. Tip: take a use of location. If any late afternoon the sky... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Derwent House in January 2014. It was our first trip to South Africa, and this gem of a guest house started it with a bang! The staff were so helpful and friendly, they were on hand to give advice, book restaurants, taxis etc and generally made you feel very welcome and at home. As... More

Great quiet location, with a fantastic cold and hot made-to-order breakfast each day. Public spaces elegantly decorated. Ask for room 4 if you can get it. No terrace but more than compensated with breathtaking views of Table Mountain. Gracious, friendly and obviously well trained staff really make this place.
