“Urban Oasis”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Well situated in a quiet neighborhood within a short walk to the V&A waterfront. Staff is exceedingly helpful and went out of their way to arrange everything from taxis to last minute dinner reservations. Lovely pool and courtyard, bright and spacious common area. Unique rooms were comfortable and clean with all the amenities. Breakfast is an excellent quality Euro style buffet paired with additional made to order entrees. The staff enjoy what they do and reflect the dedication to hospitality inspired by the owner Kevin. You can't go wrong staying at Villa Zest.

We stayed here for four nights in January before heading off to Tanzania on safari. The hotel is excellent in all aspects, the breakfasts, rooms, location but especially the staff - they really couldn't do enough for you. So friendly and helpful, especially Janese, the Manager. From recommending places to visit, to organising taxi's and day trips out she was wonderful in every way. Situated in Green Point only a 10 minute walk from the waterfront, with a couple of very nice restaurants 3 minutes walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: Barbarella, on the ground floor, is lovely, you walk straight out into the garden, like having your...

what a superb find this hotel is, friendly welcome from the night porter, the room was great, white and comfortable with wifi. Breakfast was outstanding, excellent coffee, juice, fruit and eggs! best of all was the helpfulness and enthusiasm of the lady on reception(Janice) , if you want a few nights in CT close to where its all happening at green point and the waterfront the hotel is perfect.

No 5 star hotel provides the same VIP service that Villa Zest staff can provide you. The service started even before I arrived at Cape Town. This is a real boutique hotel. Friendly and efficient staff, charming and unique rooms, groove common areas… You will NOT regret staying there!!
I didn’t miss my usual list of “thing to do”. I just had to tell them a vague idea what I wanted and they ALWAYS gave great suggestions, right on the spot!!!
Here are some examples of incredible attention to detail: one day I woke up 11 am. the manager came right away and brought the tray with ham, cheese, etc (cold stuff), so I would eat them at the right temperature. I mentioned once that I love blueberry, so every morning they brought me a bow of blueberries just for me, on top of the ones available at the breakfast table.
No wonder that are so many great reviews regarding Villa Zest!!

Room Tip: I loved the Studio 54 room, which I stayed for 6 nights

Found this hotel on booking.com with excellent reviews this hotel is very private only 7 rooms which gives it a very personal touch. Janice was amazing booking us a trip with a recommended driver to take us down to cape point. Hotel has a small pool enough to swim a little, surrounded by trees and plants with lots of lounge chairs. Lots to do in Cape Town so only did this one afternoon. We found the breakfast was excellent too lots of fruit, choice of hot breakfast was available too which was yummy. Room was fab with lovely cozy bedding. Loved watching football in lounge with Gilbert who is a mad football fan. Won't say which team he likes you will have to visit to find that out.

We have stayed here twice -both just for one night. This is a very well run, very well located small bed and breakfast/hotel. The breakfast is out standing the staff extra helpful and the real-estate is very well maintained. I personally prefer a bigger hotel with a little more anonymity And better facilities such as a bar Whilst we had an excellent margarita one does feel like it's imposing as in the evening there is only one person on duty and the desk guy makes the drinks. Having said this we would stay again and I think most people would like the intense service

Stayed with friends at Villa Zest over New Year. Absolutely fantastic 4 days. Forget about the beautiful hotel, the real quality at this place is the staff. We encountered some amazing service in SA, but the staff here were something else. Helped us enjoy an amazing four days that we will never forget.

Room Tip: Studio 54 is fabulous
