The rooms are beautifully decorated, the staff helpful and efficient, the gardens gorgeous (I saw a chameleon on a bush one morning - it doesn't feel like you are in the middle of the city), the breakfasts lavish (I put on half a stone) and all it all it's the nicest guesthouse you could stay in - I have stayed...

I stayed for 10 nights. Great place to stay. The rooms are clean and most of the staff are friendly. I would love to stay here again. There was a miscommunication about the arranged transport to University of Cape Town. However, finally the problem solved.

We loved our first visit here so much, we just had to return - and if anything, it was even better. We were welcomed back like old friends, and offered a choice of rooms: private outside suite, or in the main house. Both are 5-star quality, in spite of this being a historic mansion, and the attention to detail is...

Room was lovely and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good but did take time to prepare (worth the wait). Met some vegetarian guests there who unfortunately were not catered for. Only drawback was parking is very cramped.

We booked a downstairs twin overlooking the driveway but discovered that this is one of the few rooms with airconditioning - very necessary in the heatwave we had over our weekend! Other guests in upstairs rooms had their own verandah and great view but were sweltering. The staff are very warm and welcoming without being too bouncy and interfering. There...
