A charming and comfortable suite with spectacular views. Helpful staff who were quick to cater to our needs. A substantial breakfast every morning which sent us off well fed. I can highly recommend this quiet and secure B and B.

We had a seminar at the Palm House for the launch of our three new products, and the success of the evening was possible due to the excellent service we received from everyone at The Palm House. It is a gorgeous setting and this beautiful old house is simply charming and luxurious. Our guests were treated to a scrumptious meal and we were all so well taken care, from both the logistical and technical aspects as well as the rest of our needs and requirements. Nothing was too much trouble. Sean and his staff showered us with their exceptional personal touch that will certainly make us consider The Palm House for future seminars. Thank you to all.

We were made welcome from the moment we were picked up from the airport. Extremely helpfull and friendly staff. Beautifull grounds, excellent relaxing by the pool with the view of Table Mountain in the background (unforgetable). Clean and spacious rooms. First class food and a well stocked bar. Close to the airport,and easy access to Cape Town, yet peacefull in its self contained secure grounds.

Room Tip: just ask to see what is available
