We chose Parker Cottage as a base to explore Cape Town prior to embarking on a 62 Grand Cruise Adventure on a "slow boat to China". The Cottage is quaint and reminiscent of days gone by-but do not be mistaken, the bathroom was unique and charming and totally functional yet so different in a great way-not unlike my Grandparents home in Belgium where I stayed as a child 55+ years ago. The bed was large and comfortable. The room although a little small for a long stay was perfect for our needs. The staff were superb, even kind enough to stock up on necessities for us to take on the ship. The other like minded guests were a pleasure to chat to and get acquainted with, there was much camaraderie. The hyped up breakfast quite frankly was not hyped up enough, it's simply outstanding. The great reviews Parker Cottage receive are well justified. We had no hesitation in singing it's praises to the folk that joined us on the ship all having stayed at various higher priced establishments in Cape Town.
Parker cottage is a gem, relaxing, inviting, and they deliver what they promise.
P.S. Their coffee is in a class of it's own. Go see for yourself you will not be disappointed. Joanne and Stewart
- 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
