Amazing stay at an amazing price
The hotel staff was great right from the start. The layout of the property is unque; there are four total buildings with common spaces and bedrooms in each. We stayed in the blue building and shared a kitchen, living room and backyard area with another couple - the rooms are quiet sound proof with private bathrooms. Large beds with plenty of storage space. Each villa has an honesty bar and wifi is available for a price per day. The location is absolutely perfect!

Not recommended for couples
I would not recommend this place to anyone. It was a small room and really small bathroom. It felt like the toilet was right next to the faucet. This is not a one bed hotel, but rather a two bed/two bath home converted to one bed/bath. It has shared TVs and shared kitchen. Our other room guest occupied the TV and Kitchen, so we could not use anything. There are no TVs in the rooms. t was loud and not to mention cricket noises and wierd insect noises. The other thing to remember - if you are not there by a certain time to check-in, eat breakfast, or check-out, they are not flexible. You have to work around their schedule. They charge for Wi-Fi - which is annoying.

Nice place but too much noise
This was not a good experience. Arrived for check in at an hour the place considers to be 'late' (7pm) and had to call for someone to open the gate and check us in. Waited at the door, in the cold and rain for about 10 minutes until someone arrived - not fun and I was annoyed. When I first entered I thought the place was cute and cozy looking with a big table in the middle and a kitchen where breakfast was cooked every morning. To my surprise, our room was right on the 'lobby' which was good because we didn't have to go up any stairs with bags, but bad because usually lobby = noise. Right on, 7am sharp the next morning the kitchen noise starts with setting the table and cooking...then the guests..with children... I stayed in bed with my headphones on and that was the only way I could get a few more minutes of sleep. So I immediately got on expedia and booked another hotel because I was not going to be able to take this for 4 more nights. Stayed there one ore night and then practically gave the place 3 free nights because they offered no refund. The other reason I decided to leave was because we basically were not very close to any shops or restaurants. The closest walking distance place was about 10-15 minute walk so we went to Camps Bay and never looked back. In terms of the room itself it was ok. It was kind of dark and had animal rugs and stuff and i am NOT a fan of that. The bathroom was big with a nice big shower. The staff were friendly so no complaints there.
