Stayed for 3 nights at the Derwent. What stands out the most is the quality of the service provided by Jo, Carol and Chris. From Europe where such friendly accommodating and helpful service is not normal, it was actually quite startling - but in the best possible way. Every possible need was catered for. We stayed in room 6, which while being a bit small, was well designed with two sets of french doors that opened directly onto one semi-private deck and the main deck and the heated swimming pool which was just 3 steps from the door. We had breakfast each morning on the terrace which was fantastic. The area is very quiet, about 25 mins walk to the centre of the city (a welcomed stroll given the amount of great food available in the City). The Derwent's recommended taxi service was very trustworthy and reliable. The honesty bar was very useful and while we didnt avail of the complimentary afternoon cakes, it is another great service idea. One of the best hotel experiences I've ever had.

- 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
