Lovely house with a wonderful pool. Location is great because of secure parking but about 15 minutes out of Cape Town.

Fair 4,0
Nice accommodation very poor situation next toroad
When I booked the cottage, garden area, beside pool, I thought this was at REAR when in fact it is at the FRONT of the main house, 20 ft from a busy road. When you sit in garden you are 20ft from lorries cars and the noise of car stereos going THUD THUD, and breathing their fumes. even at night we could hear cars racing down the road or accelerating away (it is one house away from traffic lights), Nice room but poor situation. Had to park in street for first night.

Really good
Very pleasant and helpful staff. Secure parking, nice pool, good WiFi reception and very conveniently placed for the cricket ground at Newlands. We cannot really fault it.

Very nice place
IT was a great place, helpful staff. The rooms were a good size and well equiped. We were just overnight very pleased. A bit tricky to figure out how to get into the drive way as the area had changed and the gps muddled things up.
