My wife and I stayed at Derwent House for 4 nights in December 2008. We had a great time. Carol & Jo and their staff did an excellent job for us prior to our arrival and during our stay. We stayed in the suite room 9. Everything was great!
The pool is great on a summer day. The location is great also.
A brisk 30 minute walk to the cable car going up Table Mountain. 30 minutes walk to the V&A Waterfront. 5 Minutes to great restaurants and shops on Kloof Street and Long Street.
They also set us up with a great guide for a tour of the wine tasting region, Stellenbosch and Franschoek. Jamie from Cape Heritage tours was great and we ended up taking another tour with him through Cape Point and False Bay and to a township. Definitely ask Carol or Jo to set you up with Jamie on one of these day trips.
Overall our whole trip was excellent. And is started right at the Derwent House with breakfast every morning and their friendly staff making dinner reservations for us and booking day excursions as well.
We would highly recommend staying at Derwent House on anyones trip to Cape Town.

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
