This was the first hotel we stayed at on our honeymoon. All the previous excellent reviews were spot on. We stayed here for 3 nights and the girls who ran the hotel could not do enough for us in the 3 days we were there. They gave us a complementary bottle of sparkling wine as it was our honeymoon and they were always on hand to help. Michelle advised us on some great restaurants to go to (Carne was a great one - go if you like your steak) and ordered all of our taxis and generally made sure we had a great time in Cape Town. She even gave us her mobile number to ring in case we needed her at any point or had questions while we were away from the hotel. You can get lots of nice hotels with nice rooms etc but this is going the extra mile for you guests. As for the hotel itself, the room was great. The first night they'd turned down the room and put candles everywhere. The lounge/dining area upstairs is great. A nice place to have breakfast as well as relax in the daytime or evening. The breakfasts are superb as well. Full English or pancakes, a host of cereals and fruit but done very nicely not like some of the big hotels. Outside is a small pool and garden area with loungers where you can sunbath. In terms of location Villa Zest is in Green Point so it is about 4-5 minutes in a taxi to the V & A Waterfront. The cost of the taxis are very little, literally £2-3 each way. Overall I think this is a great boutique hotel run by people who will look after you and make sure you enjoy your time in Cape Town. The larger hotels simply don't have the time to give you this amount of attention.
