The Oak and Vine Guest House
Ranked #3 of 29 Newlands B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 12, 2012

The Oak and Vine was the first time I had stayed at a Guest House. What a pleasant experience! My room was comfortable and the chocolate left on my made bed each day was a lovely, friendly touch. William makes the best breakfasts and the fruit was awesome! I arrived early and I was able to check in. Leaving a little later also did not cause any issues. I felt safe and secure at this venue. Access to the property was via a remore controlled gate. Next to the property is a park and Newlands cricket ground was about a 10min walk away. I had my own ensuite and I found things to be neat, tidy and clean. Derrick was around for a chat and allowed me to print off my airline itinery. Nothing was too much bother for these people. I was very happy with my stay and would not hesitate to stay again.

We arrived tired from travel after 11pm to find the warmest welcome from Derrick Smith and a beautiful comfortable room. It was a joy next morning to find the whole place so attractive and breakfast excellent, accompanied by friendly but unobtrusive chat with Derrick. No exaggeration that it transformed our holiday expectations and we were only sorry not to be booked in for longer. But we will be back . .

I recent spent 7 wonderful days at The Oak and Vine, The accommodation was outstanding -
a lovely big room absolutely spotless - tastefully decorated, Bathroom and Shower -plenty of cupboard space and a large TV with all the channels - all in perfect working order.
The Manager Derrick Smith was the perfect host - pleasant and helpful and the rest of the staff friendly and efficient. The picturesque Guesthouse is set in beautiful surroundings with a sparkling pool and colourful garden. I can thoroughly recommend this venue and would love to visit again soon.

Room Tip: I was taken on a tour of all the rooms which all seem good to me - I stayed in a front room down st...

I have stayed at The Oak and Vine Luxury Guest House four times this year, with my most recent visit being during June 2011 during a business trip to Cape Town. Derrick Smith, duty manager of the guest house, is always warm, welcoming and committed to providing the best possible experience during your stay. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. I'll be back to stay again. Thank you Derrick and the Oak and Vine team.

From the moment we arrived we were awed by this amazing guest house. The look and feel was far more elegant than what we expected.

The service was excellent with the management really going out of their way to serve us and make our stay more comfortable. I was really shocked at how much effort went in to a personal request.

The room was beautiful and spacious. Everything inside resembled style and comfort. A very large bed with quality bedding is always a good thing. Enough seating for guests and a very spacious shower and bathroom. Everything was clean and neat, I would not rate it less than 5-star!

Our reason for travelling here was to watch the Stormers vs Crusaders rugby match at Newlands Rugby Stadium and we found this guest house to be about 5mins walk form the stadium. The area is very safe and we never felt threatened by anything. Newlands Cricket Stadium is also a 5 minute walk from there.. Nice restaurants and shopping places are all a less than 5 minute drive away.

I liked the location a lot due to its closeness to everything we needed. The guest house is beautiful and safe and the service is the best of the best!

We will most definitely be back to stay here again! What great value!

Room Tip: King Protea Room is close and luxurious!

I just wanted to say thank u so much for everything u have done.

Even tho just being in your guesthouse and the rates u gave us was enough. U totally exceeded my expectations with the roses and champagne.

My wife really enjoyed her stay there. I showed her the pool and the units on the outside. She loved it and said we'll definitely be back again.

Its so great to know we don't have to travel so far to stay at a stunning guest house, get very good rates and excellent service to top that.

Thank u so much for making our day a memorable one

Room Tip: we stayed in the king protea room
