Cape Town B&B

I will be traveling with my husband, 16 year old son and 14 year old daughter to Cape Town for 3 days in mid-March. I would like to put us up in a B&B that might be within reasonable walking distance from the center of things. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Start by choosing an area - Camps Bay will be nice in March - the wind will have stopped and the weather will be great and you children can walk to the beach

Hout Bay is also lovely - quieter - fishing and beach area with great walks and scenery

Have a look at two of our bigger accommodation web sites and try to narrow it down, then youcan ask people for specific reccos

www.capestay.co.za

www.wheretostay.co.za

As there are 4 of you, you could maybe look at renting an apartment at the waterfront

March is not high season so rates will be a little lower.

Be careful as a lot of places quote per person per night and not per room per night as in UK and US. There are no room taxes added here

good luck - hope this helps

Hello,

If you want to be within walking distance of restaurant and shops, I'd recommend looking at somewhere in either DeWaterkant or Gardens/Tamboerskloof (close to upper Long Street / Kloof Street).

The Portfolio Collection has some great options:

All of the properties are inspected and are of a very high standard, and offer superb value for money. I spent a month and a half in SA staying in Portfolio properties and was never disappointed.

Cheers,

Julian

Hello,

Sorry, forgot to ask -- will you have a car?

If not, then I'd recommend against staying on the coast (Camps Bay or Hout Bay) as you'd need to take taxis everywhere which can be a bit of a pain. If you'll have a car, staying on the coast will be fine.

Cheers,

Julian

Holiday Inn, Cape Town is really close to Waterfront but we found that you don't walk anywhere in Cape Town - it's safer to get taxis and that's what all our hotels recommended. Taxis are cheap and there's lots of them. Holiday Inn was lovely. It has a pool and gym in case any of you want some exercise while there.
