Stayed there with my wife for our 3rd anniversary holiday in SA. Had a great time, it's located in a great neighborhood that has alot of food joints that you can visit even late at night. Also check out Hussar's grill round the corner (have to make a reservation though)

The location in Rondebosch is excellent both if visiting UCT or Cape Town in general. There is secure off-road parking. Beautiful garden setting where one could quite happily relax for the day. Service professional and friendly. Superb breakfast . Reasonably priced. Try to avoid a room in the double storey house furthest away from the main area as I could... More

So you can have breakfast by the pool , or sit in one of the many pretty seating areas arranged amongst the flowers and trees. I asked for a room with a view and... More

The guesthouse has nice rooms and is serviced daily, but was a bit difficult if you are used to a fridge in the room. It can only be a small fridge as the milk that you get is very limited and I always like to buy my own to have more than one coffee. The guesthouse is very safe and... More

Little Scotia is a lovely place with really friendly staff. Being there in December, with a full program, it was nice to come 'home' to such a cosy place.. However, I noticed that during my stay of 8-days the bed linen was never changed nor the towels, which kind of put me off a bit. Breakfast was lovely provided you... More

Tucked away close to the Baxter Theatre. Loads to eat near by if on a budget. It is clean and safe. Secure parking with electronic keys. Free unlimited universal coded wifi. Pool and big breakfasts. Excellent prices (hostel prices with hotel standards!). We definitely stay here when next in Cape Town

Stayed here as part of a group. The staff was always helpful and friendly. Breakfast was included in our rate. It included a buffet along with a selection of specialties from the kitchen. We had dinner one night as well and the meal was lovely. Each room is a bit different. Some have quite lavish bathrooms while others have very... More
