Certificate of Excellence

We had such a great stay at the Oak and Vine. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. It is located in a very central convenient location with easy access to the main highways. I would highly recommend it anyone.

The staff at the Oak and Vine were absolutely incredible! They were very friendly without being overly intrusive, which was very nice. The room was very clean and breakfast was extremely delicious with lots of choices. The location was also amazing, very easy to get to Kirstenbosch and UCT, with safe parking spots. The internet connection wasn't great, however we had an amazing time.

A beautiful guest house, excellent service ( which, as a Brit,I find very hard to find in SA) Rooms are large and beds very comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble and both William and Derrick make an effort to ensure that you have everything you need. I was only there for two nights, but on the second night someone had dropped the catch on the front door meaning that my key wouldn't work- a short call to Derrick and he appeared, very apologetic at the door; this was not his mistake or mine and given the lateness in the evening it would have been very easy for him to moan about whoever had dropped the catch, but he was sweetness and light itself-not a murmur of annoyance either towards me for my phone call or whoever had locked it.
Breakfast was stunning and food cooked to order. William's attention to detail about egg softness was very efficient. In fact, attention to detail is the name of the game- even down to having decent conditioner in the shower and good quality ( and pleasant smelling)hand cream in the dispenser. The bathrooms were stylish , fabulous fast taps for an almost instant bath and a lot of room in the shower facilitating the option to dance as well as sing....should you so desire.
One free drink from the bar fridge is a simple but appreciated touch.
I was actually moved here as the B and B I had booked had overbooked it self, which initially was a little frustrated by, but was a total win for me! Thanks very much- I will return!

Room Tip: My room was next to the front door, but I didn't hear anyone leave or enter

This was my second stay at the Oak and Vine, and I always wish I could stay longer, it is so comfortable and the rooms are well appointed.

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.
