Acorn House

Reviewed February 9, 2013

This was our first visit to South Africa and we could not have found a nicer place to stay. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff; comfortable rooms and great breakfasts by the pool! Such a relaxed atmosphere and nothing was too much trouble for the staff - Stewart & Nabila, in particular, were brilliant. Could not fault Acorn House in any way and without hesitation we would recommend Acorn House very highly.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front overlook the city, rooms on the back look out to Table Mountain and are probably...

This was a tremendously welcoming place, with friendly, helpful staff. We'd recommend it to anyone. Our flight home wasn't until the evening, after we'd checked out they looked after our luggage, gave us somewhere to change and even provided a welcome pot of tea before we headed reluctantly to the airport.

I can´t think of Acorn House as a hotell. For me it feels more lika a very nice home where the staff are frends with big hearts and a lot of hospitality.
Nice rooms with spectacular view over the city. Fantastic garden.
We will definatly chose Acorn House if we come back to Cape Town.

Richard and Denise have only good points about our stay at Acorn House. The welcome we received when we arrived made as so welcome and the service was superb. We cannot fault Acorn House in any way. I have already recommended to my friends and family if they want an excellent homely place to stay while visiting Cape Town Acorn House is the one to choose. Thank you for making our short stay most enjoyable homely and comfortable. Our thanks go to all your staff for the excellent service they provided.

This is our first visit to South Africa and Acorn House was our first stop. The position is out of the centre but with cheap taxis it makes no difference. The staff are what turns an excellent guest house into a great one. Everyone seemed to go that extra mile to ensure we had everything that we needed. Unfortunately we now compare our other stops with this one and nothing is as good. If we ever come back to SA we will come here.

My husband and I stayed at Acorn House before Christmas whilst our 3 children stayed in our flat down the road. We loved the peace of our bedroom with its lovely view over the city, cool pool in the garden and the delicious and generous breakfasts served on the verandah every morning. Stewart was a delight and we very much look forward to staying at Acorn House again in the next few months.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts were awesome and we really enjoyed the beautiful coffee always "on tap" We would definately choose Acorn House as our venue the next time we are in Cape Town.
