“Nice guest house on good location”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Very good location close to V&A Waterfront and with shops and restaurants just around the corner. Large, nicely designed rooms with everything you need and reasonable prices. I might very well return on my next visit in Cape Town. / Anders

Our room was bright airy and well equipped. The owner and staff were friendly and welcoming and there was always somone on hand to give advice. The location was good. A 5 minute walk down the main road to the left is a Woolworths food market (like an M&S Food) and a few popular restaurants. A short walk from here accross the main road brings you to the V&A waterfront with its shops, cafes and restaurants. A 5 min walk down the main road to the right brings you to a fast food outlet, a Spar supermarket (more like a Waitrose) with a great bakery, deli counter and hot chickens. Go upstairs in the Mall and there is a lovely open terrace with a cafe. The town centre can also be reached this way. We never experienced any problem walking around, even after dark.

We had a really good stay in Primi Oxford House. It was very clean, spacious and a short walk to the Waterfront. Nearby there is a supermarket where you can buy anything needed.
We wil definitely come back.

Thanks to Ross and his team - we really enjoyed our stay over the Argus weekend ! We are going to book for next year already ! Primi Oxford House is extremely clean, modern, value for money and it's location is perfect ! A small niggle was that we could not watch the Stormers Super rugby game, as it is not part of the present DSTV bundle ? We had to support a local pub, but that was not so bad !
Keep up the good work guys !!
See you next year !

We always stay here whenever we visit Cape Town as we think its great value, superb location and the service is always great.
Dust on the headboard and tattered towels were a slight let down this time

Just what we were looking for in Cape Town.Ideally situated a ten minute walk from the V&A Waterfront and 15 minutes or so from the centre .We stocked up the kitchenette with snacks from the nearby Woolworths - tea and coffee are provided. The manager is very friendly and helpful -organised a hire car for a couple of days.All in all a very pleasant stay.
