I just finished staying at Little Scotia for 9 nights due to a conference at UCT I was attending. Overall, the experience was good and I would recommend it to anyone who is staying in this area of Cape Town (especially for UCT business- it's practically on campus).
My room (17) was small but nice- definitely enough room for one person and my parents' room (11) was also quite nice and much bigger. The breakfast is wonderful and the place as a whole is decorated beautifully. We visited in the Winter months so it was a little cold to sit outside but I'm sure in the summer it must be gorgeous with all the beautiful landscaping. The staff was super helpful and welcoming- they event lent me and my parents adapters to use since the ones we brought for our plugs didn't work. There are large closets in the rooms as well which I found very useful as I had a lot to hang up.
There were a few negatives though- probably the most glaring was the ant problem my parents had in their bathroom that soon developed in mine over the course of the stay. Luckily they only stayed confined to the bathroom though spray was required to keep things cool. Also there was a morning or two where I didn't have hot water. And finally, the air conditioner/heat took me some time to figure out so the first two nights were very chilly- once I figured out how to work it it was fine but it definitely was a little tricky.
Overall though, I would really recommend this guest house especially if you're coming on business. Location couldn't be more convenient- there's many cafes/delis around (and one very good steak place right on the corner), a drug store, a supermarket, a gym and more all within short walking distance.
