We enjoyed our stay here. The management and staff were most helpful, the room clean, spacious and practical. Pubs and restaurants are just around the corner and it's just a short stroll to the happening V & A Waterfront.

As other guests have also written in Tripadvisor, money was stollen from the bedroom safe. On the last day of our stay, we realized that US$300 had gone missing from the safe. Such thing has never happened to me. Hotel manager said she would investigate, but I still waiting a reply. Don't stay there!

We could not find any accommodation in our normal Cape Town stay hotels due to a large conference taking place in Cape Town the following week and therefore had to settle for a typical tourist establishment. What an eye-opener.... expensive with just the most basic furnishings and no breakfast or any other basic facilities like a pool or bar/sitting room....

Dear Jan L, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we are disappointed to learn that you did not enjoy your stay with us, for which I would like to apologize.

Very well located. Clean and functional. Wonderful customer service. Our first trip to Cape Town and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The restaurants near Oxford House are pretty good but it's only a 5 minute taxi to the V&A. Easy to get what you need for self catering from several local stores. While only awarding 4 stars this simply reflects...

We enjoyed our stay however had issues with a leaking fridge. Room is good size but attention to detail is lacking overall. Our coffee was not replaced so we went without on the second morning. Pleasant stay, close to waterfront and city bowl. A good option if you are out all day. No other facilities.

Spacious accommodation with outside seating area, although the table was warped from being exposed to the elements. The decor was interesting and there appeared to be everything one would require for self-catering including a coffee machine. The shower was large but had a big drawback as there was absolutely nowhere to place toiletries. Getting out of the shower was a...

Good location, and Jeanine (the manager/owner?) was very helpful with directions and suggestions. Our 1st floor room didn't have a view, but there was a wooden terrace outside which was perfect for sipping some wine after a busy day. There is a kitchenette (no stove./oven) which was ok, but it would've been nice if there was a dish drainer and...
