“The perfect spot”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We spent three nights at Summit Place Guesthouse and it was just the perfect place to be. The location in Constantia is ideal and makes getting all over Cape Town and surrounding areas very easy. The rooms were lovely and spacious and having ones own kitchenette was a real bonus. Both our rooms looked out over the garden with the mountain as the backdrop - gorgeous views. We all enjoyed the heated swimming pool and were able to stay connected with free wi-fi. The breakfast each morning was set up on the terrace, overlooking the swiming pool with lots of fresh fruits, yogurts, freshly squeezed juices, eggs etc... and super service. I would highly recommend Summit Place and we definitley plan to be back on our next visit to Cape Town.. It simply is the perfect spot!

Unfortunately we didn't get to spend too much time at Summit Place but the time we did spend there was great. The hospitality was great, the food was superb. Internet is included so we got to work while there. The bathrooms are neat and tidy with all essentials.
Will be back for sure.

Hi Liza. It was as always good to see you. Sorry this response has taken a while.
The stay was short and I am sure that if you come for longer next time, you will get an opportunity to enjoy relaxing at Summit more properly.
Till next time.

We were warmly welcomed while staying at Summit Place. Lots of things can go wrong when staying with a group of 10, Yet from breakfast to cleaning to being picked up while lost one day: it was perfectly organized. You definitely need a car while staying here, but all restaurants and shops are closeby. This is a great base for exploring the Cape Town region. Some beautiful wineries can even be explored by bicycle to make the trip complete.

Such a beautifully located, secure guest house. Waking up to the awesome mountain views had me in awe every morning.Friendly staff that go out of their way to assist but yet not in your face all the time. From my room it felt like I was in my own chalet in the middle of the bush. The inviting pool, the beautiful garden, I so wish I stayed longer. Whether you travel alone, with family or friends, this surely caters for all. Lots of history behind the area(Constantia), which was amazing to learn. I can highly recommend the Summit Place Guesthouse to anyone wanting to travel to the area. I will SURELY return in the near future.

We made our booking via Expedia in the UK on the basis of their web description.

The heading of this review tells it all. As another review says, the area as you drive in is somewhat austere but as you walk up the steps into the reception area, a new world opens up! The reception area is also a sitting room with comfortable chairs and books to browse, but your eyes are taken on to the dining area which overlooks the pool, around which some of the bedrooms are set. The dining area has a fully glazed wall made of retracting sections. We sat for breakfast each morning with the gentle air moving round our legs and the sun cutting sharp shadows on the pool surround and the shrubs alongside it.

There was a mix-up with our booking which was quickly resolved. We were in a Grand Terrace Suite which was spacious and well presented with a full kitchen leading off the main room and a bathroom with shower. We were well pleased.

The room rates do not include breakfast. By arrangement one can have breakfast which we did and the bowl of fruit you could die for even by South African standards.

Room Tip: Pool side master suite if available

We found this to be a perfect family friendly choice as our base for Cape Town - the garden and pool kept the children entertained for hours, while we had time to have a glass of wine, soaking up the scenery. The hosts were very welcoming, and our children fell in love with both the dogs.
