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

Great central location above Haut Bay.
