I write this review a few months after having been there in feb 2013 as my previous review was deleted somehow...
First of all i recommend hiring a car if wanting to see various sights around cape town. this is very easy, affordable and hassle-free. once this is out of the way, staying in CUBE guest house is perfect. It was perfectly placed for a drive west to the waterfront and table mountain (30 mins) or camps bay (15mins). also it allowed for easy trips east towards cape point.
CUBE itself was beautiful and clean with great gardens and pool to relax by and read a book. The breakfast was EXCELLENT (fresh pastries, breads, fruits, etc... as well as omelettes/eggs to your liking).
I was there with my girlfriend over her birthday and i thought it had that elegance and intimacy for a couple but equally i wouldn't hesitate going there with friends or family as the hosts Dirk and Patrick were very friendly, sociable (with excellent recommendations for restaurants, excursions... and even what to do if it rains!!!).
I believe the arrangements were room and breakfast only (no lunch or dinner), which suited us perfectly as the aim was to use it as a base to then venture out every day somewhere new for lunch and dinner.
Would fully recommend it!
