Lovely way to spend out last night in Cape Town. Our host bent over backwards to prepare a breakfast to take to the airport early, a taxi and anything we asked for promptly. Our room had a terrific king bed, big screen TV, view of the pool and green all around. Our host prepared little snacks....cookies and treat and had the fridge stocked with wine and beer for us to purchase in the honour bar. Nice to stay in a home after 10 days in a hotel.

This is a B&B if there are more than two of you. The room I ended up with room for four, with a kitchenette and living room. It's functional. The breakfast was pretty good although we had to scramble the following morning for the 12-minute drive to the airport. A chef (he had the jacket) came out from the kitchen.

Everything worked. The room was clean. The manager was helpful and eager to help.

The night before there were a couple of guests who dined in but we wanted to spend our final evening in a Cape Town establishment.

This is a place that is somewhat awkward to reach if you do not have your own transport. If you do, it's worth considering as a place to stay.

But if you do, and you are not bothered
