I spend a lot of time reading reviews before a major trip. Going to South Africa for two weeks from the U.S. is a major trip and I wanted to select the right place for our four nights in Cape Town. If (when) we return to Cape Town again, I won't even have to spend a minute looking around for... More

I asked the staff of Villa Zest whether they could arrange... More

Rooms are super clean and modern with a twist, each room themed. Go for the best rooms, Bullet or Club57. All staff... More

Beautiful hotel with great location within walking distance of the Waterfront and the city center. The room are very nice and modern and great breakfast. Unfortunately there is a tall building blocking the views to Table Mountain.

This is a small but perfectly formed boutique hotel very close to the waterfront. The rooms were great and the staff were amazing. Special mention must go to Tracy the general manager. Her willingness to go out of her way to help was first class, couple this with a sound knowledge of what to do and where to go and... More

Very nice hotel with clean rooms, good breakfast and excellent service. You could always go and ask for advice about activities or restaurants. They were all very nice and friendly. It's at walking distance from the waterfront. I would certainly recommend to stay here.

We stayed at Villa Zest for a couple of nights during our week long stay in Cape Town. What can I say? Tracey was the most welcoming host upon arrival and could not do enough to make our stay amazing. Tracey went out of her way on every occasion she could to help us navigate Cape Town, including booking a... More
