Before we arrived I was already impressed with Derwent House, as the email contact I had with Carol, one of the proprietors, in relation to our booking had been efficient, friendly and very helpful.
We arrived to a friendly welcome and were shown around the stunning property. Our bedroom was lovely, fresh, clean and stylish. We had a terrace with a fabulous view to Table Mountain. The living room areas are gorgeous, the guest kitchen/honesty bar facility lovely - great idea! - and stunning pool area.
During our stay all staff were lovely, helpful and friendly.
Our only niggle would be that the noise travelled up the stair - we were in room 1 which is on the first floor above the reception/lounge areas and with the open plan layout noise travelled up, meaning we heard someone depart very early one morning and you could hear people coming back late in the evening, but it was not enough to really spoil our visit.
Good location, near cool Kloof street which is full of shops, bars, restaurants.
Carol and Jo have a passion for the city so have great knowledge and suggestions of where to go and what to do and are more than happy spending time helping you with your plans.
- 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
