Reviewed 12 December 2013

Nice staff, they helped me a lot with different servicies. Excellent room, I stayed in a huge lodge with jacuzzi, big kitchen and an honesty bar, it felt like a palace! Nice reasturant with a homemade touch, really good gravy to the roast. Very friendly people here as-well. I stayed here to play golf, 2 courses within 5 min drive!

Thank you for the good review Olof. Just a pity your stay was so short with us. Good luck with the baby on the way and we hope to see you and your family again in the future.

What a great place to stay, spacious, nicely decorated and very comfortable and additionally a very friendly staff. Usually we stay in the city, but as our usual hotel was fully booked we booked here, which we absolutely didn't regret. We'll certainly come back here.

We are always happy to stay at your venue, the staff are always friendly and the surrounding are comfortable and quiet.

The food was great, and the options were good.

We would recommend this to anyone, any time.

We recently spent a week at 51 on Forest for work. Bertha was the most amazing host at breakfast every morning and always went out of her way to accommodate us. The rooms were beautiful and immaculately kept. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

This is one of the best hotels i have stayed at, the works were very friendly. We were treated to a personal care and attendtion you would normally expect from five star hotels. Within easy reach of all of Cape Town attactions.
We should have made this our base for the entire holiday, warm, friendly family run hotel.

Room Tip: Room in the main house by the pool is nearest to the honesty bar
