“Peaceful, convenient and comfortable.”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

A sympathetic revamp of this old building in a fresh scandanavian style make this quiet B & B a comfortable and convenient place to stay in Cape Town.
Road access to the CBD and tourist areas is very good, with plenty of places to eat and drink within easy walking distance.
Rooms are cool and stylish, immaculately prepared and presented.
Staff are friendly and helpful, even for those arriving late.
Breakfast choices are in the Scandanavian style, with fruit, cold meats and cheeses on offer.
Honestly bar is run in the lounge/breakfast room.

My friend and I really enjoyed this lovely villa. The staff was very friendly and helpful (Hi Joy, Louise and Gabriel!). The rooms were immaculate and stylishly decorated. Breakfast was a large buffet every morning. Such a treat! We only got to dip our feet in the pool, as the weather was too cold to swim, but it was still nice to sit and enjoy the garden. The hotel is walking distance to the Green Point stadium. Taxi transport is required at night, since it is not recommended to walk around after dark. The hotel recommends a taxi service that is fairly inexpensive, quick to arrive, and easy to contact. Very pleasant trip!

My 34 year old son & I stayed here during the World Cup. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room had 2 twin beds, with shower bath room. The property is very clean, beautiful pool & wonderful, helpful staff. The only minor complaint I had was their wireless internet was not as reliable as I would have liked.

Once again we ahve experienced the fantastic hospitality from the staff at ANTRIM Villa in Cape Town. After 5 times in a row within the past 2 years, it´s starting to feel like a second home!

The closeness to the city, beaches and the level of service and standar is getting better and better every time.

Can´t wait to come back in February again next year!
