From the moment we arrived at Acorn House we were given a really warm welcome. As we had arrived at 11.00am our room was not quite ready but Michelle brought us some coffee & some delicious biscuits while she introduced us to all the best places to go in Capetown.
Acorn house is ideally situated for trips to the centre and also to Cape Point. Taxis are readily booked if required.
The room was spotless and all credit to Beate, the owner, fot attention to detail. It was beautifully furnished with a really comfortable double bed. Complimentary sherry was provided in the room which was very welcome. The bathroom was again spotless with a lovely big bath and shower over. All in all very comfortable accomodation.
Breakfasts were superb catering for all tastes from full English to a vast array of cold meats and cheeses as well as 'speciality' dishes from Janine in the kitchen.
The staff could not have been more helpful. Stewart was very knowlegeable on local dining and helped us find great dining which he happily booked for us. They had good relations with a local cab company to make sure we paid the correct fares.
We had a most enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this guest house to anyone visiting Capetown, Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable. Sadly, the weather wasn't particularly good during our stay but, at least, we had a comfortable haven to come back to.
