A stylish and comfortably elegant haven to return to after a day at work. I had the room with a mountain view which was perfect for my requirements. Jane is a gracious hostess and the breakfasts she effortlessly prepared were scrumptious. Thank you Jane for the lovely chats.

I couldn't have chosen a more gracious place to spend a week while in Capetown...A lovely area that is also convenient to the different highways and close enough to the city... The decor was very upscale while also comfortable... Beautiful sitting areas and terraces...Loved it !

The room was perfectly appointed with a lovely view of the mountain. Jane the host was very friendly and cooked a delicious breakfast each day. Every detail had been thought through, such as having a jug of fresh milk and cold water in the fridge. The room was immaculately maintained each day. The furnishings and fittings - including bed, shower,...

After struggling to fiond accommodation for the weekend for a family celebration, I came upon The Terrace as a happy accident. Jane was a friendly and accommodating host who clearly takes pleasure in running this Kenilworth gem. I took a double room for two nights and the house and the rooms are comfortably and thoughtfully appointed. The location was central...

This was my second year in a row visiting The Terrace. As much as I have been drawn back to Cape Town since I first came 15 years ago, I am now also drawn back to staying here in The Cottage.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Terrace is a stylish, beautifully appointed B&B in select upper Kenilworth, Cape Town with an atmosphere of serenity and elegant informality. Ideally located for leisure or business, The Terrace is just 2kms from Cavendish shopping centre, Claremont and Newlands Cricket and Rugby Stadia; 5kms from UCT and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (World Heritage)on the slopes of Table Mountain; 14kms from the CBD and V&A Waterfront and 22kms from the airport. We are very close to the many medical facilities in Kenilworth/Claremont/Wynberg. It is a 2 minute walk to a great little deli, hairdresser, a pharmacy and restaurants. We offer a choice of 1) a large double room (up stairs) with a comfortable sitting area and wonderful mountain view, 2) a self-contained, garden cottage with a separate sitting room/kitchen (self-catering option) decorated in fresh greens and white 3) a spacious garden studio decorated in contemporary colonial style. All rooms have well-appointed en suite shower rooms, 32" flat screen TV with DSTV, free WIFI, a safe, hair dryer, mini-fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and ample wardrobe space. Microwaves available. Bed and bath linen is of superior quality (pure cotton). Rooms 1 and 2 are airconditioned. Room 3 has a remote controlled ceiling fan. We love nothing more than for our guests to make themselves at home and the spacious sitting room (wood fire in Winter), veranda, large salt-water pool, deck and leafy garden, are all for your enjoyment. Swimming towels are provided. "English" breakfast is served in the "Conservatory" dining room or on the veranda, if it's not breezy. Well-lit public parking is right outside the property (reservation not possible). ... more   less
