The moment I stepped into this wonderful place, I felt that we would have a great time. The aura, the salutation, the smile on Jo's face, the colours, the smell, the affectionate arrangement of details, the flowers, the material, the light ......... everything. We stayed two weeks and I really never wanted to leave this place again. I am travelling around the world a lot, I can tell you, but the Derwent House is the nicest place I have ever slept and been. Every detail is arranged with love, the bed is so comfortable and has such incredible bed linen. If you open a drawer, you will be amazed to see how everything is arranged and what is inside. The owners have crept into the soul of people to realize their wishes. You will not find anything what is missing or what you don't like. The breakfast is very good, you get whatever you desire, the personal is warm and friendly, the kitchen is open 24 hours, which means, that you get tea and coffee with delicious cake from Melissa’s in the afternoon, or cold drinks out of the fridge. In the evening you have a list, where you make a line on the bottle you take - the wine is excellent. They do really care for you, the moment they see you. In the afternoon I was lying at the pool and I got a frozen little towel to cool my face, an ice and fresh orange juice. Please tell me, where you are treated so nice on this planet. Please come and visits the Derwent House if you have a chance, it is one of these places you have to feel and enjoy. Don't miss it !!!!!
- 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
