The rooms were lovely, the location is good, the breakfast was very tasty, and the common spaces were very pretty and comfortable. We had drinks by the fire every night. I would recommend it for almost anyone, except perhaps for people with young children.

This was our first visit to Cape Town and choose Derwent House on a recommendation from a friend and they were spot on! Just a 10 minute walk from the shops and great restaurants and having Table mountain as a view from your bedroom window you can't go wrong. Carol and Jo's hospitality was second to none and as our stay was part of our honeymoon Carol fired up the hot tub and a chilled bottle of sparkling wine - wonderful!
We have nothing negative to say about our stay at all and this hotel makes a convenient, relaxing, welcoming yet chic and surprisingly affordable base for Cape Town and beyond. Highly recommended - thank you from Kathy and David.

this place is as good as the other reviewers suggest. Carol and Jo are just lovely - wonderful, hospitable, and incredibly helpful. I really appreciated the fact that they let me check in early (having arrived in the early morning), and check out late - something I havent experienced in any other hotel! The rooms are just lovely. I am only sorry that I didnt have the time to enjoy the two lovely patios my room had. The hotel itself is exquisitely designed. Breakfasts are great. You really can't go wrong with this place!

Room Tip: general advice - stick to the taxi firm jo recommends - very good and reliable. The others can be twice the price!

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Jo and Carol and the rest of the staff are both super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. All their recommendations on restaurants were spot on. They arranged a tour of the wine country for us that was fantastic. Our room was great with its own patio looking up at Table Mountain. Breakfast is cooked to order each morning. The location is right around the corner from Kloof Street which is full of restaurants and shops. They even arranged a pickup for us at the airport upon arrival. I could go on and on but in a nutshell, if we get back to Cape Town, this is where we will stay.

We stayed at Derwent house for only one night and wished we had more time to stay. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Cape Town. Carol was extremely helpful in our booking for the trip from Australia.
