After spending more than 24 hours traveling we felt as if we had entered the home of a close friend when we arrived at the Derwent House. Denee met us at the door and made us feel right at home. The common area with the coffee/tea, cookies, cake and honesty bar was a welcoming surprise. It was lovely to sit by the fire and enjoy a class of complimentary port or sherry after a busy day of sightseeing. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The large, soft bath towels, robes and the pre-programed cell phones were a nice touch. Dene and Vuyo were friendly and helpful with suggestions for dinner, calling taxies, planning excursions, etc. The breakfast each morning was delicious! They even offered to prepare us breakfast snack bags for our early morning departure. The Derwent House is a great location making it easy and safe to walk to several great restaurants. We stayed at the Derwent House for 6 nights in July and if we could give it more than 5 stars we would and we hope to be able to return someday soon!
- 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
