10/10 Exceptional

Great hotel in Cape Town
Great hotel in a good location especially if you want to explore the beaches of Cape Town. The staff and service was exceptional. Note that it is potentially a bit more challenging if staying with younger children.

Honeymoon stay
Nicole and the staff was super helpful! Made our stay stress free. The staff would make breakfast fresh every morning to our liking. Stayed there for our honeymoon and would definitely would recommend this hotel. It is about 20 minute taxi ride to the town, but it is very peaceful and has such an amazing view of false bay, the ocean and table mountain away from city traffic.

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent and central to Cape Town attractions
Beautiful, small hotel located on hillside with views of lake and ocean. Tastefully decorated with antiques and art work acquired during owners travels. Perfectly located for easy access to the wine area, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Point, Table Mountain, etc. Having your own car or renting one is advisable. Driving on the left was NOT a problem. Hotel staff is outstanding! Each day David inquired about our plans, checked weather or other details and ensured we had good driving information. I arrived suffering from a case of food poisoning from airplane food. They even brought me meds to help alleviate my symptoms! Since the hotel is on a hillside, there are steps leading up to the hotel. You do not have to walk a long way, but simply need to be able to walk up steps safely. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend staying here!

6/10 Good

Our stay was pleasant and both staff and owner were very attentive to our needs. The problem was in the descriptions of the location and facilities. Internet was slow and not not available most times Finally the biggest problem we had was with the conditions of reservations stated and later handling of expuda for our request. We called on 13th to change the departure to 15th long distance from South Africa and after 20 Minutes were told all has been taken care off. Again we called on 14 th and found nothing has been updated on the reservation after the owner confirmed that she had not received an email this time I was put on hold for half an hour and the expedia agent came back assuring all is done. Finally on day of check out the owner tells us that expedia is lying and I am liable for remaining three nights When I called again there was no changes made to reservation and when I talked to supervisor he said I am telling now you have to pay This is both unbusisiness like and I wish to lodge a complaint
