Really Lovely Hotel
Really lovely hotel with great staff for whom nothing is too much trouble; our room was very spacious and well equipped with everything that you need for a comfortable stay. The hotel has a lovely garden and some great areas to sit and relax and they serve a fabulous breakfast each morning with a wide selection of both hot and cold dishes. After our one week stay we would definitely visit again.

Nice little hotel
It was perfect! Nice little hotel with spacious rooms, friendly staff and a really good breakfast. It is not in Cape Town downtown but has a perfect location. The restaurant at the corner is a great option for dinner.

10/10 Exceptional

Little Scotia has excellent location-- on Main Road, easily accessible to the main downtown (Table Mtn cable car, V&A waterfront, etc.), as well as to the Southern Suburbs (Kirstenbosch Gardens, Boulders Beach, Muizenberg, Constantia, etc.) and even to the wine country out east (Stellenbosch, etc.). If you are going to be at UCT, it is superconvenient to any part of campus. The staff are great. Breakfast is filling. Great atmosphere overall.
