My hubby and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely place, a home away from home! Very clean, beautifully decorated rooms, great breakfast but most importantly the staff were WONDERFUL! :D

Janese, couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable, Michelle, what a warm, kind person! The night staff - great!

I would highly recommend the Villa Zest, and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Any room would be great!

+ modern facilities, including gorgeous luxury bathroom
+ outstanding service
+ lovely breakfast included in room price
+ small pool

- central, but slightly off the beaten track location

Stayed at Villa Zest for just one night (sadly!) when we arrived in Cape Town. Though we arrived in the morning, we were able to check into our room early for a much needed nap and shower after an 11 hour flight. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was gorgeous, with a huge bathtub in addition to the large shower.

Staff were amazing and had helped to recommend several restaurants for dinner the night we stayed. They made a reservation and when we arrived sorted a taxi for us. We had a car and were able to use the hotel parking (they have a few spaces). It was a bit of a walk to the waterfront (10 minutes or so) which we didn't mind, but may detract if you want to be right in the action.

This lovely boutique Hotel has it all. The location is good because you are in between the city and the waterfront area and close to public transport. Staff are so amazing they will advise you about everything you want to know and help you with everything you need. My stay here could not have been more perfect thanks to all the team at Villa Zest.

We stayed at the Villa Zest on two occasions on our recent visit to SA. Our stay there was perfect. The team of girls running it are first class. They couldn't be more helpful. They are so enthusiastic it was a joy to ask their opinion on places to visit or go out to eat. They even offered me a more expensive suite as it was available, as I am 6'5 it had a bigger bed, for no extra cost. At night you get Gilbert to look after you, who is equally great and fun to talk to. If you want to kill an hour get him onto the subject of football, he loves a chat!

The hotel it's self was amazing. It was so relaxing sitting in the comfortable garden area I could of stayed there all day. At night there's a fire that can be lit so you can sit out into the early hours supping on a Savanna or two.

When we go back to Cape Town I'll definitely stay again and recommend it to absolutely everyone.

Well done to the Villa Zest team you are all awesome!

We loved Villa Zest, its gorgeous, in a great location and perfectly clean but what really stands out is the service, from breakfast throughout the day the team couldn't be more helpful. Wish we were back there right now!

Michelle and all her staff are extraordinarily pleasant, helpful and capable. They helped with all our questions and needs, making reservations and recommending places to go and see. The only problem is we have to leave.

Friendly staff, sumptuous breakfast, nice and spacious room. Can walk to the waterfront area restaurant and attractions, but secluded and private property. Free parking. Overall a very pleasant experience
