An older but comfortable guest house in an excellent location, it is up the hill about 3 blocks above the city streets. Good views from the rooms. 5 minute walk to very good restaurants, 15 minutes to SA Museum and start of central city attractions. A good value. Although it was indicated staff would be available to advise on and book local tours that was not the case. So make your plans in advance, but don't book tours and activities until you arrive as weather is the deciding factor.
We stayed 6 nights and five full days and felt that was the right amount of time to explore the cape area.
