My husband and I recently stayed at Derwent House and we would certainly recommend it as a place to stay in Cape Town. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome.
Our room was very clean, comfortable and warm, which was most welcome after a day walking around Cape Town.
The communal area was very cosy and Carol made sure that the fire was lit every evening so that we could enjoy some drinks (complimentary port and sherry) before heading out for dinner. There was also a communal kitchen where we could make tea and coffee and enjoy cake in the afternoon.
Breakfast was delicious, with lots to choose from each morning. We were very spoilt for choice and wish we could have stayed longer to try it all.
The location was perfect - a short drive to Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront, walking distance to the City Sightseeing bus and walking distance to many amazing restaurants.
Carol was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave us lots of recommendations for dinner and places to see. She was also able to tell us lots about our next destinations (Hermanus and Franschhoek) which was great.
We truly believe that we couldn't have picked a better place to stay.

- 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
