It's been almost five years since we were there, but it still remains one of the nicest B&B stays in our travels. Dirk and the staff really made us feel welcome, even as our schedule didn't quite fit with the normal flow of the guests (we were in a bit of a party mood, coming back quite late from the Waterkant and sleeping late as well). The breakfast tray was adjusted based on our timing and preferences, which we really appreciated - and didn't even have to ask for. Parking was easy in the protected lot behind the facility. Perhaps the most wonderful memory was right when we arrived - after the long flight from Amsterdam (via Jo'burg), we were up for a nap. So we opened the windows, including the door to our little terrace. A wonderful breeze picked up as a storm rolled in. Between the smell of the air, the comfortable beds and the general comfort of the space, we had the most amazing naps ever. We still talk about them. We chose 17 on Loader because of the location and were thrilled to have landed here. I have happily recommended it to other friends visiting Cape Town and hope to return in the future.

Response from ManageThree, Owner at 17 on Loader Guest House
Responded Nov 30, 2015
Hi there, Many thanks for your kind message, and review. Just a quick update:- The Guest House, known as 17 on Loader Guest House, closed its doors in 2012. And Dirk and his Team left with its closure back then. TripAdvisor has been informed of this fact on numerous occasions, but have not responded, nor taken down this page. Your review must relate to the new business, which is totally unrelated to this TripAdvisor page. Regards

OMG. I have seen many guesthouses (pensions like we call it) but this one beats them all. I must have been one of the first that stayed in the new place. Perfect beds, large rooms, wifi, the whole building is full of design stuff. Fantastic breakfast and free smoothies and brilliant wine (a local find, Stanford Hills - worth checking them out also on a two hour drive to Stanford). Not to forget the rooftop, where you can see the Table Mountain and oversee the city plus harbor. Normally I stay at very good hotels, but next time I will definitely stay with Willy and Roderick. Thank you for a perfect experience!

It's been a while since this trip but I just came across the photos and I wanted to give Dirk and his guest house the recognition it deserves . Let me start by saying its in an amazing location. Also it's a short walk from bars, restaurants, gyms, and the mighty waterfront ( where u take the ferry to Robbin Island)- u also have a view of Table Mountain( it's a gorgeous backdrop especially on the rooftop patio ) . It's clean , well- run, and it makes the African trip so much more " authentic " then just an ordinary hotel room . For the value , the location , the service .. U won't find better .

I had to cram 3 days & 2 nights of sightseeing, shopping and partying in cape town. 17 on loader was a great place to unwind after each day - Great location - walking distance from Long street, lovely view of table mountain and the city from the roof top... Would definitely go back...
