This hotel truly is a little gem. Carol & Jo were fantastic and their staff couldn't do enough for us. From helping us to arrange taxi's to booking restaurants and tours. When we visit Cape Town we'll surly come back to stay. Our rooms were spacious, clean and had great views of Lions Head and Table Mountain. We stayed for 7 nights and although after 2 nights we moved room because of availability the move was smooth and all taken care of for us. Room 2 had a deck and balacony which was lovely. The breakfast is really delicious and substantial. You can start off with a cold continential breakfast followed by a hot breakfast. The portions are huge. Through the day guests can help themselves to tea, coffee, cakes, biscuits. The hotel runs a honesty bar service which is great when you fancy a nice cold beer! The pool was great and solar heated which made a nice difference. Our hotel was 10mins drive to Camps Bay, V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain. Great location and walking distance some really good restaurants to chose from. Watch out going to the restaurant is easy as it is down hill but on the way back its a pretty steep hill to climb! Good work out after the big portions South African restaurants serve! We met some great guests at the hotel. Carol & Jo made our last night extra special by way of treating us to some pink champagne - the best we've ever tasted!! This hotel deserves to stay at #1 - made our holiday extra special :)

- 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
