“The best hotel in Cape Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We stayed at the Villa Zest on two occasions on our recent visit to SA. Our stay there was perfect. The team of girls running it are first class. They couldn't be more helpful. They are so enthusiastic it was a joy to ask their opinion on places to visit or go out to eat. They even offered me a more expensive suite as it was available, as I am 6'5 it had a bigger bed, for no extra cost. At night you get Gilbert to look after you, who is equally great and fun to talk to. If you want to kill an hour get him onto the subject of football, he loves a chat!

The hotel it's self was amazing. It was so relaxing sitting in the comfortable garden area I could of stayed there all day. At night there's a fire that can be lit so you can sit out into the early hours supping on a Savanna or two.

When we go back to Cape Town I'll definitely stay again and recommend it to absolutely everyone.

Well done to the Villa Zest team you are all awesome!

We loved Villa Zest, its gorgeous, in a great location and perfectly clean but what really stands out is the service, from breakfast throughout the day the team couldn't be more helpful. Wish we were back there right now!

Michelle and all her staff are extraordinarily pleasant, helpful and capable. They helped with all our questions and needs, making reservations and recommending places to go and see. The only problem is we have to leave.

Friendly staff, sumptuous breakfast, nice and spacious room. Can walk to the waterfront area restaurant and attractions, but secluded and private property. Free parking. Overall a very pleasant experience

We stayed here for our last night in Cape Town. The service we received was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel is small and in a quiet location just a short taxi ride from the waterfront. We would recommend this hotel

We stayed for 2 nights in September at the end of our 2 week trip. Great to relax, 20mins walk from V & A waterfront. Very trendy but comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, excellent breakfast.

We had a great time at Cape Town and we must thank the staff at this tiny but cute, clean and well kept boutique Hotel for it. They booked our cable car up the Tabletop mountain, gave us a printed itinerary with suggestions of where to lodge during our next part of our S. African tour (at Hermanus), and their tips were excellent.
Warm, helpful, kind staff. Good breakfast, nice pool in the yard at the back of the hotel. Within walking distance of the Waterfront yet on a nice and peaceful street.
Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: The rooms are "thematic" so ask about the options. Ours was Warhol (as in Andy).
