Had a family outing, combined with our wedding anniversary. Such a lovely place, realy enjoyed the stay. Close to V&A, Canal Walk and situated in the most beautiful place in Capetown - Pinelands. Would recommend any day.

We stayed in October 2016 in the 2 bedroom apartment at 56 Forest Drive. It was lovely, clean, spacious and had all the necessary amenities. Breakfast was amazing and the place was central to most attractions and had shopping closeby.

Very nice apartment in a butiful place. The apartment has two lovely bedrooms and nice and comfortable kitchen. They also have a restaurant but the dinner there was not so good. Breakfast was excellent. Staff is perfect and very friendly.

A bit of a gem is how we'd describe this guest house. A super-large kitchen/dining/lounge, with a separate bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Mention must be made of the restaurant. Having met Chef Ozzie (Sp?) we learned that everything, yes everything, is cooked fresh on the day and I must say the food we had was excellent.

Fish cooked just right - still glistening, not fibrous or tough, surrounded by the lightest batter we've had in ages. And we mustn't forget the magnificent Eggs Benedict for one of our breakfasts and perfectly poached eggs and bacon the next. All luscious.

Comfy bed and lots of hot water.

As ever, there were one or two small issues, but a chat with the owner soon had them sorted. Really good.

We'll be returning.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Platinum suite. Pool outside, loungers. Lovely

The room was very nice and spacious. The bed was a bit on the firm side for us. The reception and staff were very good as was the food which was delicious. The only issue we had was mold on the bathroom ceiling. We reported it to the staff who apologized and said they must of missed it but the area was about a meter square. Other then that issue the stay was great.

Thank you for your review James. I apologise again for the issue with the ceiling but it has been cleaned & had a fresh coat of paint.
