We were a group of 5 Ladies attending the SA Darts National Championships and spent a wonderful week at the Chocolate House. Both Lee and Johan were superb and made us feel at home on arrival. The service and food were excellent and we were treated like Royalty!! Would not hesitate to stay there again. What a lovely place.

Excellent value for money at the Chocolate House in Cape Town. Just the place to stay if you want to be close to everything! It is around the corner from UCT and 4 minutes from the Waterfront. It has beautiful views over the harbour and Table Mountain as a back ground!

Oscar Wilde, an Irish writer and poet (1854-1900) said: "I have a simple taste - I am always satisfied with the best." Unfortunately he didn't have the chance, dear hosts Johan & Lee, to discover your place, he would have loved it! This is really a great place to be! Thank you so much for your overwhealming hospitality! This is... More

We had a perfect time in the chocolate house! We booked three nights. The bedroom was lovely and very tidy, also the two bathrooms. Lee and Johan, the owners, are the best hosts we ever had...very helpful with reservations or any other questions you had. Breakfast time is up to you! We surely come back! Many thanks to Lee &...

The care and attention to detail are overwhelmingly evident at the Chocolate House I was made to feel welcome. The rooms are clean, beautiful and comfortable, great shower, great tub. It is nice to have animals around (the Siamese cat-Cocoa, and the poodle-Versace). Johann and Lee give meaning to the word "hospitality". They are in the right business! . My... More

Johan and Lee made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well. Room was clean and comfortable and for us with a car the location was excellent. Breakfast was always an event( everything is done with flair here) and we used the time to share our experiences with the other guests. The resident pets CoCo and Versace are... More
