“Good option for a long stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

I recently led a group trip to Cape Town and the Acorn afforded a good place to stay. It is within a 10 minute walk to some good restaurant options, has a park across the street (along with play equipment if you have children), and is in a quiet part of the city. The house itself was quite clean, furniture comfortable and well organized. June proved to be a knowledgeable and gracious host. I would highly recommend!

Myself and my husband stayed in the guesthouse for 5 days. The area is centrally located and allows one to get to the waterfront, table montain and most areas within a few minutes of driving.
The rooms are spacious and neat, and the rest of the house really makes one think you are at your own house. June, the lady who runs the lodge, is up and ready each morning to provide you with a large breakfast. The rooms are serviced daily. Across the road from the lodge is a large field that one can use if you wish to get some exercise. The cars are parked on the premises behind electronic gates and the rooms are also all gated, so one feels rather safe.

This is a wonderful option, given that Cape Town has relatively poor public transit and many travellers opt for using or renting their own car. Location is great for access to UCT, restaurants, hospitalsand businesses in the southern suburbs. Also easy to get out and about to Table Mtn, Cape Point, Garden Route and so on. Downtown and City Bowl were exciting, but wouldn't want to deal with a car down there. Rooms pleasant, nice pool and common space (living room and kitchen). Athletic facilities very convenient - good area for walking or running.
