Wonderful and highly recommended!
Highly recommend this lovely and chic hotel to anyone going to Cape Town! The aesthetic is clean and modern with vibrant colors but it still manages to feel warm and welcoming. The owners and staff were so lovely and made the most beautiful breakfast: fresh fruit and cheese platter, homemade banana nut muffin, yogurt, and a latte!

10/10 Exceptional

Jo greeted us like we were long Lindt friends & showed us to our stunning room. The views of the sea & the mountain were so good that just soaking them in was out favourite part of the day. The rooms had a beautiful Scandinavian style and expertly decorated. The beach was a short walk away. It was worth staying here for the breakfast alone. The variety and attention to detail was impressive. I am gluten free and was spoilt for choice. The highlight of breakfast is the freshly home baked pastries/muffins every morning. We visited the One&Only during our stay & my husband said he preferred Sovn, for the privacy, views, location & personal touch. Jo could easily co-ordinate everything a travel guide could, taking into account the weather & personal preferences. She lived onsite & was literally contactable 24/7, which made us feel very safe. We didn’t get to use the swimming pool but it looked very inviting & so did the outside terrace.
