Would go back anytime due to the friendly staff and restful environment. The breakfast was good quality and most delicious. I had a peaceful sleep after a hard days work. Entry and exit to the Guest House was no problem and I really felt at home here.

A home away from home. Even thought I was very late in arriving and very early in leaving, I was still treated as a valued guest and made to feel at home. When I travel to Cape Town again, this will be my accommodation of choice.

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff were super friendly and ready to help with any request. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The en-suite bathroom was adequate but small. The breakfast was really nice.

It is untold expectations when you visit a guesthouse for one night over a business trip. You go there for the sole purpose to sleep to get the day over in order to get back home. Then you find yourself walking about feeling your at home and suddey the evening is just to short.
