It had a large bedroom area, a large sitting room area,... More

We stayed here for a wonderful week. The staff were charming and waking up the first morning, after a great night's sleep in a king size bed with memory foam mattress, it was a delight to see a breakfast table all laid out on our patio. Definitely the best orange juice and breakfast we had throughout our trip. The location... More

First mistake: Thinking a Guesthouse was a boutique hotel. Lesson learned!! :D That said, the service level was excellent! The staff were wonderful, and always ready to help with anything. The location is perfect for all sorts of day trips from Downtown Cape Town (30 minutes away) to Cape Point (45 minutes away) and all points in between. Rooms are... More

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights in the smallest room of that guest house. Service and Food was excellent and we also enjoyed talks with the owners. Platinium would be also our choice for the next stay in Cape Town!

My wife and I booked into this guesthouse after we had a problem with our AirBnB house. The management and staff were exceptionally kind and hospitable. We stayed for 11 consecutive days. During some of the days we spent our whole time at the property. It was a comfortable experience. The view was incredible and the neighborhood was very quiet.... More
