My wife and I stayed at Derwent House for the last three nights of our two week holiday in Cape Town. There really isn't much more to add to all the previous glowing reviews except to reiterate what a marvelous place Derwent House is. The staff are all very friendly, extremely efficient and just lovely. We had Room 2 which overlooked the pool and had a balcony and terrace from which you could just see Table Mountain. The room wasn't massive but more than ample and very comfortable and stylishly decorated. The swimming pool looked very nice and was a decent size compared to many that we had seen at other hotels in the Western Cape. Breakfast was extremely good and was served either in the open plan dining room or on the terrace overlooking the pool. There is a small kitchen just off the dining room with an honesty bar as well as which guests can use to make tea, coffee etc. and there are yummy cakes provided for afternoon tea. One very nice touch was that sitting by the pool one afternoon we were offered choc ices. What we both liked about Derwent House so much was how homely it felt and we looked forward to getting back "home" after a day sight-seeing; in fact it was a very great temptation just to spend the days lounging by the pool rather than getting out and making the most of being in Cape Town! The owners Carol and Jo were endlessly helpful and in particular made a couple of very useful suggestions before arrived that meant we were able to skip the queues at Table Mountain and Robben Island. I am extremely hard to please when it comes to hotels and with Derwent House Carol and Jo have achieved pretty much the perfect "boutique" hotel and we would be back again like a shot!
