Great experience, home from home for us when we visit Cape Town once a month for business. Great rooms, friendly welcome and nice breakfast. Located in beautiful Tokai, under the Table Mountain National Park, with great restaurants around the corner.

They were very accommodating in adding extra beds into an appropriate room for our small children when I called to make the reservation.
