I stayed there on two separate occasions during a recent visit to Cape Town. The rooms were fantastic, Harvey the owner is a real character and looked after us brilliantly. Great breakfast in the morning and superbly located. Could not recommend it more highly. Patrick

1 night stay - Harvey could not do enough for us including a cracking cup of coffee and bacon sandwich! He ordered us a taxi to go to the local, when it never showed he drove us himself. Top rooms, great location, would loved to have stayed for the week.
