“Summit Place self-catering cottage”
Reviewed November 22, 2008

We stayed at the self-catering garden cottage at Summit Place for 10 nights. We found the cottage to be private, secure, very comfortable and spacious, and with a convenient separate entrance/parking. All (4) family members had their privacy. We have a 1 year old baby - a full kitchen was very useful, as was the cot provided by Michael. We were also provided with an automatic gate control, enabling us to come and go at any time. Summit place also has a B&B facility, indoor and outdoor common area/lounge, as well as a pool - we were out most of the time and did not need to use any of these facilities. Initially the washing machine did not work; this was later sorted out and before it was fixed, another laundry option was provided. We did experience a water leak during heavy rain in the kitchen (not unusual in Cape Town) which is something that should be looked into. Generally our stay was very comfortable. Michael was also flexible to our arrival and departure timings which was good.

Everything about the place was great. Any minor problems (like internet connection problems) were solved quickly and without difficulty. The food was great, the beds were superb, the rooms were huge - it is hard to find anything to complain about.

Beautiful accommodation with very friendly helpful staff. Rooms to an extremely high standard & fully equipped and comfortable. A wonderful base for exploring Cape Town & beyond. A reasonably priced taxi journey will take you into the town centre for a more cosmopolitan experience, as the accommodation is in very upmarket leafy suburb with high surrounding walls and security fencing.
Not being used to living in this way makes it a strange and slightly uncomfortable experience, since the townships you drive by have so little.
If you are looking safe, scrupilously clean & luxurious accommodation, then this is for you.

I have not visited Cape Town in many years and was uncertain what to expect regarding accomodation, so my experience at Summit Place exceeded my highest expectations. Michael Parker impressed me immediately with his call, the minute I had booked, welcoming my son and I. When we arrived we were made to feel at home immediately and our rooms were airy and very very comfortable and were able to enjoy a lovely english breakfast the next morning. It is also well placed to the areas we needed to visit. Thanks so much to Michael and his team for making our time in CT so enjoyable. Marion Mansfield

I am a frequent traveller to Cape Town (from JHB) and have stayed in plenty of reputable establishments, however this was one of the finest places to stay.

Tremendously furnished, plenty of space (unlike the overpriced pokey little executive rooms in downtown Cape Town), luxurious finishings and trappings - all combined within the really home styled manor in Constantia! It's like being at home, except my home is not an elegantly styled farmouse in one of the most beautiful suburbs on the continent.

The staff were really friendly, always helpful, and the breakfast was simply gargantuan. All of this for less than half the fair of a downtown studio room!

Book soon, before they cotton on to the fact that they are literally giving away their rooms!

You want to hear no cars noise, no people talking, no dogs barking only beautiful songs from the birds in the morning, then Summit Place is the best place for you. You having quarrels at home, your relationship, you tired you feel weary and longing for a holiday Summit is the best place for you. Even in Winter this place has a warm welcoming fireplace where you can just close your eyes and fall asleep , while your favourite music is playing softly. Their linen are like angels blankets & their bedrooms make you feel or be like a King/Queen in the palace. You get a healthy breakfast in the morning, fruit muffins fresh from the oven. A very nice entertaining area makes you not want to see your old place. Beautiful mountain views!!! They have great services & offers, they make sure that you rich your destiny.

Constantia is the great place to be in the Cape.
