Great place to stay and to discover whole of Cape Town and cape. Close to beaches, excellent restaurants. Coming back after town excursions felt like coming home. House and rooms are cosy and quiet relaxing.

I felt the staff was not to friendly for people working in tourism or very helpful and the noise outside the rooms made it impossible to get proper sleep. The location where the guest house is convenient

Dear Nolitha,

when we saw your review we were quite surprised and therefore we took the liberty to contact you via telephone.
We thank you that you had time during our telephone conversation and we are happy that we clarified this misunderstanding.
Our Reservation Manager offered comprehensive informations, but as your sister is living in Cape Town you mentioned that’s not necessary.
Unfortunately you did not participate to our breakfast, therefore we did not had the chance to catch up with you.
We wished you would have approached us directly during your stay, also our staff is more than happy to assist our guests with their needs.

Best regards
Alexandra and the entire team of

It was more than I ever experienced: more value for money, more kindness, more hospitality, perfect stylish rooms, great surroundings and all this 10 Min away from the middle of Cape Town. See you soon

I loved staying at sweet orange. I'm coming back in 3 weeks! I'm really looking forward to it. I enjoyed the rooms. It's beautiful. And also the breakfast is amazing. I didn't see a lot of the area. But I'm definitely going to see that in some weeks.
