Antrim Villa is a very well maintained guest house with helpful, friendly staff. The rooms are well sized and decorated, although the bathroom in my room was a little tight. Towels, toiletries and spare pillows/blankets were provided. There is a swimming pool and the guest house now has free Wi-Fi throughout although the strength of the signal varies greatly and can drop off completely out the back by the pool and room 8 where I was staying.
There is a comfortable and fair sized lounge with small kitchenette where breakfast is served in the morning and is available for you to use during the rest of the day. As well as a Scandinavian breakfast buffet service, with staff on hand to assist and tidy after you, there's an honesty bar/fridge - take what you need and write it down on the sheet under your room number, then ay on departure.
Joy was very helpful over email in answering questions about possible itineraries before I arrived in Cape Town, and Ingrid followed that up once I arrived by being very helpful booking the activities and trips I requested and arranging pick up from the villa and transfer to the airport. There is a security/support person on the property at night and the entrance is gated, but you are able to come and go at your leisure.
Very close to the stadium at Green Point, but a good 30+ minute walk to the V&A Waterfront or Long Street areas, so you'll want to budget for taxis.
The service and comfort of this hotel were fantastic and exceeded my expectations. There are some charming, nice touches as well about the service - I won't spoil them by telling you what they are!
