We stayed 3 nights over NYE 2013/2014. Really great spot and view from the terrace. Friendly staff, who served us breakfast in the morning. Yves was really kind and assisted us with every question we had :-) If you like to play tennis, there is a tennis court in the garden and also a small pool (which is unfortunately cold).... More

It seems that we were quite lucky with the choice of our accommodation in Cape Town / Constantia. Ikhaya was a good choice. First of all, it was not that easy to find a place for the whole family who wanted to stay together over Xmas and New Year's Eve. Ikhaya offers enough privacy for everyone. The rooms are quite...

Very nice location. Garden rooms have a very nice view. Constantia is a perfect location to visit Cape town and its surrounding and stay in a calm place. Yves and all the staff are very friendly and helpful.

We booked a day prior to our arrival via booking.com two rooms for 4 people. When we arrived the owner told us that he had mixed up something and that there was only one room available. As the room was very spacious we decided to put in two beds. The facilities and furiture are very safari like- lots of game-... More

Hi We are Steve and Teresa from Somerset in the UK, we travelled to South Africa March 2013, this was our 3rd visit to S.A and thought rather than a large hotel in the center of Cape Town we would venture to the outskirts in a B & B. So glad we did, what a fantastic choice we made choosing... More

Having read some of the other reviews, I can only conclude that the much praised Cheryl with her freshly baked breakfasts has moved on. I had for breakfast this morning: a grand total of one cereal (that one being Corn Flakes, of all exciting and healthy breakfast foods!); a plate of stale pastries, featuring one day-old croissant, one fresh roll...

We spent two nights at Ikhaya and it seems that a lot of effort went into the decor etc, however it is a little tired now and needs a good dose of TLC. Rooms hot with no fans or aircon- no top sheet to sleep under just a heavy douvet. Breakfast unexciting - bowl of fruit salad with a carton... More

This was an amazing place to stay and at a perfect location. You could look down on Cape Town. It was so quiet and clean. Cheryl is the best host. She made so much food every morning and it was really good. One of the best places we ate in South Africa. It's really a shame the don't operate it... More
