My husband and I stayed 4 nights and the staff made you feel like family. Steffi was waiting on us when we arrived. She sat down with us and asked what our plans were while we was there. She suggested several eating places and even called and made reservations for us. If we needed a Taxi they called and arranged... More

We were only at the Inn for one night, but found it to be a wonderful stay. It would have been great to stay longer. We had a very warm greeting and orientation to the property and our room, which was very comfortable. Great use of African/South African decorating touches throughout. We particularly appreciated that they allowed us to use... More

This place is conveniently located between Signal Hill, Table Mountain, and the waterfront area. The staff was very very friendly and more than happy to help plan your days if you would like. The breakfast was great. We were out most of the day so we did not have lunch or dinner there.
