After reading the favourable reviews on trip advisor I decided to book this hotel, sadly they were full, but they did have an apartment just behind the hotel. Checking in at the hotel reception, we were taken round the side of the building through electric gates into the apartment complex next door. First impressions were not too favourable, as you go down a dark corridor with all the apartments having floor to ceiling iron gates, similar to a prison cell in front of their door. Sticking with it paid off, our apartment was amazing! A great size, beautifully furnished and quiet with nice views of the port. The attention to detail is very evident, we had a mobile phone supplied with SAR120 of credit. The fridge had a bottle of wine, fruit juice and fresh milk, they supplied breads and cereals, so we were totally self sufficient. The bathroom had a seperate shower and large bath, and the toilet was in it's own room. With our own allocated parking space, coming and going was simple. We found this so relaxing, and although told to come over to the main hotel for the pool, we felt so quickly at home, we never did. The staff are great and suggested excellent restaurants for dinner. A brilliant experience!
- 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
