Quiet and nice location, and the French owner as well as GM are very pleasant, providing a high Level of individual service. Excellent linen/beds. Small sun-terrace and pool, great for a little dip. Some noise early in the morning though, when the guest house comes "to life".

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2010

We stayed here while visiting cape town. The building does have a certain charm. However our room, although it had a high ceiling, felt very cramped. It was also very stuffy despite the nice win outside. There was no air conditioning, as this was our first time to the Cape, I dont know if this is normal . We did however have a great big loud fan.

Although quiet at night, in the morning you'll be awake by at least 7 due to the racket coming from the kitchen. Breakfast was adequate.

Our towels smelt of bleach and one had bleach stains on it. Well at least it was clean I suppose. The toiletry containers had seen better days.

We were greated by a lovely french man who was very friendly and helpful.
