I'm feeling really bad about posting such a late review! We stayed at Derwent House at the end of a relaxing holiday in March 2012 and afterwards we stepped on a plane and back to the gridstone. Despite the Tripadvisor reviews we did not set our hopes too high for a city centre (albeit boutique) hotel and had ensured we stayed in various lovely places in the winelands and beyond beforehand. Derwent House was simply to be our base while we explored the city for 5 days.
From Jo's warm greeting onwards everything was a delight. Nothing was too much trouble and the openplan, chic communal space, the pool area and the gorgeous breakfasts made everything special. There are plenty of decent or better restaurants within10 minutes walk - though we sometimes used a cheap taxi back when the climb seemed too daunting at the end of a long day.
We will certainly make Derwent House our base next time we visit and we won't think twice about chilling out here before we venture out of the city.
