“wonderful memories”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Wow I must say, I wish we had stayed longer but we have to get back to work at some point.

The place was beautiful and homey, I would definitely come back some day,whether with friends or my family. I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for some peace and quite. The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly.

Keep it up guys your place rocks!!!!

Our stay was fantastic to say the least! It was a very busy weekend with a 40th to prepare and cook for, your place was a saving grace for extra kitchen space for us to do some cooking. Your breakfasts were delightful and the chefs friendly and cooked up tasty eats. Thank you again!

The food is awesome and really well set out.
The service is excellent and the people are very friwndly whilst giving me space.

The only problem is that I got woken up at daybreak because of the blinds that don't shut out the light.

51 on Forest was a great place to stay! We stayed for 2 weeks in July and were blown away with the kindness and efficiency of the staff. The accommodations were comfy and very clean. The food was great!

Absolutely fantastic home grown South African place. Super friendly staff and owner. Decor a bit of a mish mash that's make it feel like home, somewhere you could've grown up in. I love it! Super spacious rooms with full dstv and wifi whether on business or play who needs more than that if Capetown weather acting up. Great chef Great food and seems to be in the middle of everything. Definately coming back here! They sure as hell know what they are doing!

My stay was comfortable, the staff were very friendly, the space was ample and the location was central and convenient. The food was also excellent. Above all, this is exceptional value for money compared to hotels in the area.
