    Great location for exploring cape Town. Safe, secure and friendly. Had a good, solid sleep each night in a comfortable bed and enjoyed a really decent breakfast every morning. The honesty bar was a major plus, as was the decent wifi.

    Nothing was too much trouble, gave us some very good touring tips. Rooms very comfortable and spacious, very clean. Great breakfast x taxi ride from V&A waterfront costs approximately R50 to R70 depending on time of day.

    Great place, comfortable rooms, good location (not in the very town center but still everything is in easy reach), nice breakfast buffet and the owner goes out of her way to help her guests and make them feel welcome. Definitely recommend!

    Hi Jeff We are staying with you for 5 nights late September..our very first trip to South Africa. As you are probably aware "tipping" for Australians is not a natural phenomenon, in fact some of us are a little reluctant to participate in the process. As tipping does not generally occur in Australia I am always confused when travelling overseas as the custom appears to fluctuate dramatically from continent to continent so I need to enlist your assistance so that this confused Australian does not offend individuals by under tipping nor distort the local economy by over tipping. Is a tipping surcharge automatically appended to service delivery charges..some countries just add 10% to all bills as "service charge"..and if this happens additional tipping is optional for exceptional service only... Could you please advise if tipping is REQUIRED at all and if so the MINIMUM tipping expectations for the following service delivery. ? Taxi Restaurant Porterage Bar Housekeeping Tour guides Tour drivers Any other service delivery tipping expectations. Thanking you in advance for your assistance with this challenge... Kind regards Trevor and Liz
