“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2006

We stayed 1 night at the Old Cape Road in July. It was off-season and I think we were the only guests. We were given a georgeous room with a jacuzzi bath, sitting area, private balcony for about 320 rands per night, which was really steal. There was no breakfast offered due to off-season, but we had a fridge in our room and ate in the little sitting area. The owners were very nice and parking was safe and on-site. We felt it was a little too far to walk into town at night (day would've been OK). The only negative thing was the traffic noise. We weren't disturbed while sleeping, but during day and when sitting on balcony was quite loud. This will likely be true for any of the several inns or bed/breakfasts which line the road behind the lagoon.

Stayed July 2006

We stayed at the Old Cape Road Guest House for 2 nights in January 2006. It is absolutly lovely - spotlessly clean and decorated to a very high standard. The views off the verandah and balcony are stunning. Safe "off the road" parking. The breakfasts were perfect with a good choice of freshly cooked food with a stunning view from the dining room. The only downside was it is just above a very busy road and we had difficulty sleeping the first night. The owner was symathetic and moved us without any debate to one of the rooms on the first floor where the patio door to the balcony was double glazed and much quieter and Wow! you should see the bathroom - so try to get Room 8 or 3 which is on the lower floor but quieter as it has a vestibule entrance to the bedroom.There is a lovely Italian restaurant about a 100 yard walk up the road from the hotel.
Service is excellent with the owners unobtrusive but always there to help. We loved it!
