This is one of the finest guest houses in a city that has many that exceed international standards. The owners offer unmatched hospitality, warmth, and advice in a setting that is both stylish and welcoming. The pool and courtyard setting are lovely and the neighborhood is pleasant and convenient to restaurants and Cape Town's many beautiful sights. They were extraordinarily... More

We stayed at Derwent House as the first stop of our honeymoon and it was fantastic. The room was very smart with a spacious bathroom and balcony overlooking table mountain. The feeling of the hotel is very relaxed and warm and we were happy to sit having a drink in their sitting room as we are at home! The honesty... More

Myself and my boyfriend have just returned home from our two week South Africa trip. We stayed at Derwent house for our first four nights in Cape Town. Derwent house is a beautiful boutique hotel situated just below table mountain and not far from the V&A Waterfront (around 10 mins by car). This guest house is stylish, modern and extreamly... More

Derwent House was the cherry on the top of our South African vacation sundae! The location is quiet and safe, the decor is stunning and classy, the rooms are comfy yet chic, and Carol and Jo are just wonderfully kind people. There is a reason why this hotel is listed #1 and if you are reading this, you should take... More

My fiancee and I stayed at the Derwent house for 3 nights of our trip to South Africa. We really enjoyed our stay and were very impressed with what this hotel had to offer. The owners Carol and Jo, have thought of all the 'little' things that would totally make your stay!! From blanket warmers, to DVD movies, delicious night... More

We visited Derwent House for 3 nights at the start of our holiday in March this year and returned on our last day before flying back home. Jo and Carol were fantastic hosts (nothing was too much trouble). The hotel itself is boutique in style yet home from home - we had the self catering suite as we have a... More

We recently spent 5 nights at the Derwent House Hotel in Cape Town. This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Carol arranged transfer from the airport on arrival. We were given a warm welcome and our beautifully furnished room had the most spectacular views of Table Mountain. The hotel is furnished with great... More

We stayed at Derwent House for 8 days split over 2 trips and really can't recommend it highly enough. We were having a bit of a traumatic time whilst staying there and Jo and Carol couldn't have been more helpful and really made us feel at home. The location is good. It's a quiet, residential area, but is just round... More

Don't miss out if your staying in CT as Derwent House is a cool place to stay!! From our initial reservation Jo and Carol were brilliant and helpful and nothing was ever a problem.
