Stayed here for 5 nights over Dec 11 and Jan 12. Rooms were large and well equiped. Service from all the staff was great - special mention to Sean and Gilbert. The breakfasts were filling and good food. The pool is excellent and great after a hot day of sightseeing. Excellent views from my room overlooking the mountains. A little out of the city but they do provide a driver and sometimes at short notice! Bathrooms were clean and mine was huge.

Room Tip: Take the executive rooms - I had the Phoenix Room

Having stayed before at the Palm House in 2009 we did not look for another location in Cape Town when we came back this year. Excellent location and superb service from the staff who looked after all our needs from breakfast to the limousine service to go site seeing in the city.
A safe friendly and relaxing location.

A charming and comfortable suite with spectacular views. Helpful staff who were quick to cater to our needs. A substantial breakfast every morning which sent us off well fed. I can highly recommend this quiet and secure B and B.
