I stayed here while on a business trip, as were all of the other guests I met during my stay. The hotel is located in Durbanville, which is a quiet, safe suburb of Cape Town. The rooms are all different but mine was quite spacious and well appointed. The bed was firmly comfortable and there is a fridge (which also serves as a mini-bar) and microwave if you want to bring your own food.
The guest house provides a breakfast with a continental buffet and eggs cooked to order. There is a fixed-menu evening dinner that is offered on request but was very good on the evenings when I ate there. The Durbanville business district is only a couple of kms. away where there are many restaurant choices if you should want something different. Wireless internet is offered for a fee based on data consumption and I found the speed adequate. There is a small TV that only received about 5 channels. There is a safe provided that is OK for documents but is too small to fit a laptop.
What made this property truly special was Monica and her staff. They were always pleasant and seemed to proactively look after your needs. You certainly can't get this level of service at a large hotel.
