Stayed for the first 4 days of November. Arrived very tired after l2 hour flight from London and it was wonderful to be able to relax on loungers next to the pool and have a swim. The staff were all delightful and our rooms could not have been more comfortable. The breakfast was first class - loved the fruit salad and the situation just on the edge of Cape Town but quiet was perfect.

Silly me! I thought that when you pay a hundred dollars a night you get a bathroom inside your room!
Not so!
It was across a common hall!
And nowhere did it say that!
And the rooms were in a house across the street, not in the beautiful house you see in the pictures!
And the room was tiny, stuffy, ugly cheap furniture, the bed to narrow, and no airconditioner!
The main areas were nice and we could cook a nice braai in the yard - fine,
but no bathroom ensuite when you pay $100 a night????
Youth Hostel! Deefinately not a 4-star hotel!
Don't go there!

Room Tip: Don't forget to ask if you get a bathroom...

Stayed for three nights in August 2012.
Great location - easy access everywhere (Cape, downtown, Stellenbosch, etc.)
The owners and staff are very friendly. Always helpful with tips.
Had a room with non en suite bathroom. A great value.
So I expected to share the bathroom/shower, but it turned out that non en suite just means that I have my own bathroom/shower but just across the hallway.
The room was very clean with really nice sheets and comfy mattress.
Wireless worked very well.
Breakfast was great - eggs, bacon, cheese, yogurt, fruit and the works.
They have great pools and fireplaces (even though I did not make use of it).
Also a nice restaurant nearby for good food.

The house was perfect for my week stay in Cape Town. It is located in a nice, quiet, safe neighborhood. I wanted a guest house out of the city but not too far - Cotswold was perfect! The drive into Cape Town isn't bad, but I would highly recommend having a rental car for this location. The staff was very helpful and always had breakfast ready first thing in the morning. I would highly recommend staying at Cotswold and I hope to be back!

Room Tip: The single room is small, but was just fine for one person.

Definitely a place to visit. We booked for a week in August and had a fantastic time. The hotel is beautiful and Bettina was very helpful with ideas for things to do and places to go. The breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day - we'll certainly be back

The staff and owner are wonderful, helpful people who genuinely want to make your work trip or holiday the best it can be. The rooms are very beautiful and well-appointed, as is the house as a whole. Excellent value for the money. My only wee issue is that it's a bit far from Cape Town central, but only about a 5 minute walk from a bus station (and 10-15 minute walk to several great restaurants and beaches.) I have every intention of staying here again!

We as a family of four stayed three nights in this lovely guesthouse, in the attick, which is the family room and very suitable for that. Breakfast is good and the atmosphere of the house is really fine. It was too cold to use the pool. The guesthouse is situated close to the bus stop. We can recommend the accommodation. Excellent!
