Stayed here for a segment of our honeymoon. Phil went well above and beyond to make our stay great. He did things that other B&B places did, like a 'stuff to do' meeting when we arrived and serving us a pretty darn good breakfast in the morning. But he went above that:
- following up with us to see what we did and it went
- hosting a wine night
- setting up a fire in the fire place at 8pm for us
- giving us an understanding about the South African culture and politics
- didn't make me feel bad when I didn't know how to work the antique toilet they have in one of the bathrooms... xD
- surprised us with a bottle of champaign one morning for our honeymoon celebration
- much more that I'm sure I'm forgetting
We also met quite a lot of really nice people at this place during wine night and a few times during breakfast. We really enjoyed the option to be secluded if we wanted, or be social at times as well.
Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Would highly recommend this place to anyone considering visiting cape town or the surrounding area!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Parker Cottage! We’re a little different than the usual hotel or guesthouse experience. Rather than being just a conventional ‘place to sleep’, we offer a very much unplugged, urban retreat right in the creative heart of Cape Town. So although we offer free and fast internet, we don't do minibars, piped music or even reception desks. Think of us like a country house in the middle of the city. We’re the kind of place where you can rediscover the art of conversation, endless breakfasts and total serenity. Parker is a social place too: our legendary free wine evenings occur at least twice a week and there’s no ‘cut off’ time for our gourmet breakfasts either. ... more less
