Great service and very friendly and helpful staff.... thanks for making my stay with my niece so special. The location is perfect for parents who want to visit their children at UCT or nearby schools over weekend or so. ;-)

The room was very comfortable and extremely spacious. Some lovely little touches here and there. My compliments especially to Steven who made me... More

Our second visit here and again excellent service and support alongside the sunshine. Almost a home from home with free staffing thrown in. Always happy helpful and willing to sort out any booking or query. Excellent location for central Cape Town and the wine country.

Beautiful rooms in a historic guest house. The staff was amazing and we felt very taken care of during our week long stay. I liked that it was very convenient to downtown but in a quieter neighborhood. Craft market across the street on Saturdays was great. Free Wifi and off street secure parking were a bonus. Very reasonably priced.
