The team there bends over backwards to meet your every need, and we literally felt like family with each by the time we left. David has done a tremendous job with customer service. The rooms are...

Always a very warm welcome at the Cape Standard. Staff very helpful, ready to make the reservation you need. Excellent breakfast and rooms simple, clean, practical. Some noise in the morning for the moment. Due to construction across the street.

This is my fifth visit to the Cape Standard Guest House and the place only gets better. I like it so much that I would feel guilty staying anywhere else!
