The hotel is small, it has less than 10 rooms. Rooms are nice and clean and homey. The breakfast is included and is kind of like a grandmother would make you at home. The garden was tired-looking when we were there but it was their winter, so I can imagine that it is a lot nicer in their summertime.
It is quite easy to find, but the reception is on the other side of the road in separate building. The breakfast area was luckily on the same side of the big road. Later we understood that there were some rooms in the same building with the reception as well . ..so it was a bit confusing.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Tina. Unfortunately Cape Town is suffering from a very bad drought so our gardens do look very tired but we are not able to do much about it. We have very strict water restrictions so watering the garden is very difficult. We are all praying for some much needed rain to fill up our dams.

I hope you enjoyed your trip to SA & hope to see you again if you are ever in Cape Town.

Have just come back from spending another nine nights here including one in the luxury Royal Suite! What an experience.

I didn't believe that Theresa and her staff could do any better that they had before but they proved me wrong. The accommodation, the cuisine and the general vibe was just awesome from day one to day ten.

A big thank you to everyone for another awesome stay at 51 On Forest Drive!

Room Tip: All the rooms I have stayed in were good.
