A gem in Constantia
I loved my short stay. The room was very well appointed, neat and comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat: a good selection that was well prepared to my liking.

Excellent choice for Cape Town leisure
Very obliging and solicitous hosts who let us in very early. Comfortable room and lovely views. Fairly easy to find and good things to do nearby, as well as being well-placed for trips around the Cape and Cape Town area. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent guest house
Excellent guest house run by super-friendly ex-pat British couple. Lovely rooms, breakfast and strong w-fi signal. High point, aside the service, was the proper swimming pool that you could swim in (as opposed to the plunge pool 'swimming pools' so commonly found.

Awesome stay
Beautiful house with amazing service. Enjoyed the fire to warm up in the rainy weather. Breakfast was excellent and the room was very comfortable. But the care and service really was what sets this apart. Close to excellent Constantia wineries. While downtown Cape Town and the Airport are relatively near by, the relaxed location and view from the room feels far away.
