I stayed here for two nights while on business a week ago. Rooms are outstanding (there are antique style rooms as well as new rooms), parking available, service excellent and the breakfast is wonderful!

This was a business stay and the central location was excellent. There are a few separate buildings that make up this hotel, and I was in room directly opposite a very lively night spot. The double-glazing in the room prevented any disruption but the noise within the building was a real problem. every time someone turned on a tap it... More

We were a family group consisting of six persons: parents, children and grandparents (both 80+). After checking in it appeared we were not staying in the main building that hosted the reception and the restaurant, instead we were ushered away to another building 100 meters away up the hill. Once there a narrow winding stairway took us up to the... More

We stayed here for a night a couple of weeks ago and were unimpressed due to a combination of issues. * Firstly, their website is misleading. It makes it look like their rooms are all quaint with a vintage or colonial cottage chic feel, but what they don't tell you is that those are just the rooms in the main... More

It's a really nice place in the middle of the town. The owners are super nice and make everything possible. You have the Kloof Street with all the restaurants and bars around the corner.

Very friendly staff, very nice breakfast and variety. Nice big beds. Very central location. Can access the whole of Cape Town easily via Kloof nek road and surrounds. Perfect location. Old Victorian style building restored means wooden floors are noisy, walls are thin, other guests opening and closing doors wakes you up all through the night.
