How or where do I start? DERWENT HOUSE. Entering the reception area of the hotel is like entering a warm, exceptionally well decorated home. A comfortable and inviting room that just turned out to be the preview for the rest of the hotel. The overall decor of the public spaces and the rooms, beautiful as they are, is surpassed by the personalities of Jo and Carol, the owners. The Awards for Patience and Humour go to these women. My partner and I were impressed with their due diligence in reminding us before we left the UK to make timely arrangements for the rental of a car as the Christmas season is one of the busiest periods. They also made reservations for us to attend a show and dinner on New Year's Eve. Jo and Carol were helpful with the preparation of our daily itinerary and recommended many wonderful places to have dinner.
Breakfast was a great way to start the day as the young ladies who prepared and served our eggs always had a delightful way of making us feel less guilty about eating too much. It was also the time to chat with other guests who would tell us about their previous day and either recommend or discourage certain activities. We have decided that Derwent House is a definite 'Must Do Again.'
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a city renowned for hospitality, Derwent House stands out as one of Cape Town's leading boutique guesthouses. Located in the heart of the vibrant Tamboerskloof/Gardens neighbourhood, this small hotel combines historic charm, contemporary Afro-chic style and all mod-cons for a uniquely Capetonian blend of ambience, warmth, and comfort. Our wonderful team completes the picture -- we go the extra mile for you and our guests leave as friends. We love colour and celebrate African design - you'll find it everywhere. But when it comes to the basics - like breakfast, bedding, showers, climate control, Wi-fi or news from home - we don't compromise so you don't have to. At Derwent House, you're steps away from the hustle and buzz of Kloof Street, with its collection of superb restaurants, bars and trendy boutiques--and just a few further to the nightlife hub of Bree and Long Streets. Yet just a short car journey from the Table Mountain cable car, the beaches of Clifton or Camp's Bay, and the V&A Waterfront. There's nowhere more central -- but come and see for yourself. We're waiting for you! ... more less
