At the risk of never being able to find a vacancy for a return visit we must give this establishment the highest recommendation possible. From the enthusiastic welcome to the sincere farewell every effort was made by our hosts to ensure not only the service at the hotel was perfect, but also every possible assistance was given to ensure our...

We now stayed there for the 3rd time. When making the booking we knew that we are not the only ones who want to stay there. From the booking over the overall organisation to the final check-out, everything is perfectly organized to your needs ( I normally do stay at Hilton's, because of the int'l standard, but they often do...

This great boutique guesthouse in Cape Town is comfortable, beautiful, serves great breakfasts, and is well located for getting around the area. But with that said, nothing compares to the most amazing service and hospitality of its team. Even before I arrived, Claire helped me reserve tours, restaurants, make plans and then change plans only to make new plans (many... More

From the moment we were greeted by the entire hotel staff until our reluctant departure, we experienced one of the most phenomenal hotel stays ever! Klaus, Chris, Claire and Steffi completely took care of us the entire stay. They planned everything for us from restaurant reservations, cab pick-ups, adventures etc. The inclusive breakfast offered the usual meats, cheeses and cereals,... More

We stayed at 2inn1 Kensington as our first port of call for the first 3 days of our recent 10 day trip to the Western Cape, and had we had our time again, we would have absolutely wanted to stay for the full duration. It was interesting to compare the experience against the other hotels and guesthouses we stayed at,... More

Right from the start, Klaus and his team made us feel welcome. They took the time to sit with us to review the activities we wanted to do over the next few days and gave us hints around what we should be doing in Cape Town. They even provide a mobile phone for the lenght of your stay to allow... More

we spent five glorious nights here. Having read the superlative reviews we thought we were setting ourselves up for disappointment but that turned out not to be the case. It was our first time in Cape Town and we were out all day every day returning at 5pm to enjoy a couple of hours by the pool before dinner.No sooner... More

This was the fifth year in a row visiting this amazing boutique hotel in the month of February for I and my wife. In all these years the exceptional standards of service provided by the 2inn1 team have never dropped at all. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff and we like many other regular guests would... More

Unbelievably good. Nowhere can surpass thiis exceptional boutique hotel. The owners, Klaus and Kris, together with their fantastic staff cannot do enough to pander to your every need. Nothing is too much trouble. We have been coming here for six years and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Cape Town. Accommodation is excellent and breakfast is to die for, the... More
