As with other reviews I only have positive things to say about Derwent House. We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in room 3. The staff at the hotel are extremely helpful, in particular Vuyo who helped us with restaurant recs and dealt with any queries we had. The free use of a laptop in the reception area was very useful.
Carol arranged a transfer from the airport which was great and very reasonable (c.£30) as well as car hire through CABS who dropped the car to us at Derwent House (both I would recommend). The area is safe to walk around with some nice shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance on Kloof Street. We didn't walk to the waterfront but the hotel use a good taxi company who we used a few times (only about £5 and 10 minutes ride)
I would certainly stay here again - The V&A Waterfront is nice to visit but hotels are overpriced - Tamboerskloof is an interesting area with alot of character and is a stones throw of all the action.
- 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
