This hotel will now always hold a pleasant thought in my heart. I asked my girlfriend to marry me up Table Mountain. The hotel heard about this and gave us a free bottle of sparkling wine and a congratulations banner on the bed. They seemed genuinely happy we were engaged. The hotel has a great view of Lions head and... More

We stayed in the apartments which included a gated parking spot. Breakfasts were excellent with a choice of menu items as well as other items. Service was fantastic. We had two apartments for four grown adults - we might have been able to squeeze into one but the bedding was not set up for it really. Definitely would stay here... More

It isn't often you come across something unique, yet special hotel or guesthouse, all packaged together with a an eclectic, but elegant wrapping. Derwent House is rated a four-star establishment, but there is nothing four-star about it. From the moment you arrive it is five-star all the way. This guesthouse is suited for couples, business travellers and they can even... More

What a delightful surprise! The ambience makes you feel at home the minute you step inside. We were greeted by the manager, Luca & what a lovely guy. He was super knowledgeable about what was available for visitors to do & he kept us entertained with his quirky jokes & life stories. Our breakfast was absolutely yummy! A real treat... More

Would definately return. Be prepared to pay for 4stars and receive 5. The manager Luca was excellent in seeing to our every need. Perfectly located so that you're walking distance to most of what Cape Town has to offer.

We stayed at the apartments next to the hotel. The service was very good and the hosts are well-informed about Cape Town and its highlights. The room had a good size and was nicely decorated. Even breakfast was prepared!
