I highly recommend Paradiso Guesthouse in Constantia. On a recent visit to Cape Town, directed to their website by a booking agent I booked the poolside room online for 7 nights at their guaranteed best rate.
Unfortunately, I have had a few problems with Guesthouses: their websites descriptions bearing little resemblance to reality.
Arriving at Paradiso I was met by Melody, a pleasant, professional "meeter and greeter" and the owner of Paradiso. I must congratulate Melody, Cindi and Kim for making my stay a happy memory. Their website states: Paradiso offers friendly hospitality, set in a tranquil treed garden with sweeping views of the distant Constantiaberg Mountains, Constantia valley and its wine farms. This is an understatement; I enjoyed the relaxed laid back attitude, the room, winter
warmed with underfloor heating, the spa bath and all promised from the website, a reality, not a pipe dream.
The sumptuous breakfasts providing a wide selection of continental and English cuisine - freshly baked muffins, banana bread, croissants and fruit. Scrambled eggs and Omolette aux Fines Herbes made by Leonard, Melody's husband.
All in all I found the service to be excellent!
