“The best honeymoon ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

We had the most amazing stay in Cape Town for our honeymoon last year, and this was mostly due to Steffi's hospitality and 2Inn1! From the moment we arrived, Steffi, Claire and the rest of the team helped us with activities, recommendations and restaurant bookings.
Everything was absolutely perfect from breakfast, our room, the location and each of the amazing dinners we enjoyed.
I hope that we're able to come back to Cape Town one day and stay here again!

I feel like I am just repeating everyone else's comments, but we could not have been happier with our choice for 5 nights in Cape Town (thanks TripAdvisor!). I had been in contact with Steffi before we arrived about whether we needed to plan anything in advance and she kept saying "don't worry, we'll do it when you get here" - and while I admit I was a bit nervous (sorry Steffi!), I had absolutely nothing to worry about! From the moment we walked in after 5 days in safari (and afraid I would be too sad missing the animals!), Steffi settled us in and planned out our next 4 days to perfection. As others have said - the breakfast was fantastic, the house quaint and adorable, and the happy hours a great way to meet other guests and we very much enjoyed getting to know Steffi, Klaus, and Claire (among others!). We loved every minute of our stay in Cape Town (even with a couple of days with not so great weather) and firmly believe that is in large part to our stay at 2inn1. I have realized with all of their repeat guests that the next time we come visit we will have to plan far in advance to get a room - I am certainly glad we did this time! Thanks to all of you for making us feel like family, and 2inn1 our home that we were always glad to get back to at the end of the day. :) We miss you already! Beth and Brendan

My husband and I stayed at 2inn1 for 3 nights in the beginning of May. As the other reviewers have pointed out, this place is second to none. You can feel and see the staff's dedication to their jobs and love for what they do in every moment you spend at the hotel. They make you feel as if you are the only guests they have. Your wishes are anticipated and attended to immediately. Their knowledge of the area ensures that you get the best of the time you spend in Cape Town. They make reservations for restaurants, book your entry tickets online, call the taxis and simply make sure that while you are in their care, you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
The quality of the rooms, the amenities, the pool, the delicious breakfast, the attention to details, the gorgeous views of the Table Mountain from the reception are just the topping on a very delicious cake named 2inn1.

Steffi, Claire, Claus and your wonderful staff, thank you for making our stay in Cape Town an unforgettable experience! And thank you for a special touch of wishing my husband a Happy Birthday! That memory will stay with us forever. We can't wait to come back!

We initially only booked this hotel for the first 4 night of out two week holiday to South Africa, but once we stayed here the first nights we realised no place was going to outperform this hotel. The hotel is absolutely beautiful but it's especially the service you won't find somewhere else. The friendly staff literally do everything for you, from booking your restaurants to printing your tickets to table mountain, and when it turned out that on our last day we had a flat car tier they arranged the entire replacement with the car rental company and we could just leave with a fixed up car. As per the other reviews the breakfast is absolutely amazing with lots of fresh fruit and superb hot complimentary breakfast dishes as well. We would recommend everyone to go to this hotel as your stay will be unforgettable!

Room Tip: Book the luxury room as you'll then have a nice balcony to enjoy the sun until late afternoon.

Our second stay in February 2013. Whats changed is for the better, the breakfast is fantastic, anything yo want and if they dont have it they will get for you.The whole team are exceptionally helpful, organisng restaurant bookings, taxis any directions you want are quickly printed off and passed on to you. They go out of their way to make your stay as comfy as possible, you are made to feel so welcome and part of their family. All the rooms are of an exceptional standard and the garden and pool area is truly so comfortable. Will certainly be back and instead of doing a Dubai stopover on the way home would sooner spend the extra days wirth Klaus, Chris, Claire, Steffi and the rest of the team. Counting the days...

So, I returned this year about one year after visiting the first time. My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days with Steffi, Klaus and Claire and the rest of the amazing staff at 2 Inn 1. After spending a week in Botswana, to arrive and be greeted like long lost family was too good to be true. That immediate, vodka and tonic and reminiscing about the last year, was only the beginning of a fantastic stay. As everyone that reviews this place says, you can't believe how well taken care of you feel. first of all, just being helped out of your car to that first breakfast, when you realize that, that you probably won't have to eat for the rest of the day, until you end up at one of the great recommendations for dinner!! ie: Haiku, Stef,. The daily strategy sessions on where to visit and how to get there, along with arrangements for just about anything you could need. I haven't even begun to mention the great rooms and amenities. The feng shui of the design, and comfort of the rooms. Everything is just over the top except it's like being home, and then after a long day of seeing the sights to return to Happy hour, and some of the happiest other guests that you can meet. And this is all due to the hospitality of this great group of people. As you can tell, I can't wait to return for my third visit. GREAT WORK !!!

This hotel is absolutely brilliant. The staff are the best and are so friendly. They can't do enough for you. The breakfasts are amazing, the rooms are gorgeous, and the outside area is just lovely. Steffi and Klaus were so helpful in organising taxis, places to eat and sightseeing trips. It is in an amazing location and I would definitely stay there again. It helped to make this our best ever holiday.
