Wow. What can we say? This Cape Town example of a "B&B" is world class and so friendly.
We came to this hotel on our first day in South Africa after a mix-up with our first Cape Town hotel. The booking
agent quickly found this hotel for us and as it was a last-minute arrangement we arrived by taxi a little nervous and unsure what to expect. We needn't have been - from the moment we stepped out of the taxi we had a welcome party
to greet us and manager Steffi made us feel at home right away. She allocated us a wonderful modern room and informed us of a very welcome bottle of chilled wine in our room fridge.
Within the hour Steffi had already brought us drinks and nibbles on the terrace, explained things to do in the local area and even booked us a waterfront restaurant and taxi for the evening.
Every member of the team was great: friendly and helpful and somehow very efficient at the same time.
The hotel is located in a beautiful residential crescent at the foot of Table Mountain with great views. It is very reasonably priced and yet Five Star in every way from the food and service to the care and attention. All the little details are done just right in a way you just wouldn't expect from a typical hotel - on top of large rooms, lovely comfortable bed, and a real luxury bathroom, an i-pod dock is supplied, tours are booked and even a mobile phone is included for each room. The team make you feel completely relaxed and the hotel itself is a beautiful mix of modern design and some great period features.
If we are ever lucky enough to be in Cape Town again we'll be heading right to 2inn1.
