“Wonderful Small Hotel with Exceptional Personal Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2010

I stayed at CdM with my 22 year old son during World Cup 2010. The hotel, which is a faithful re-creation of a Tuscan villa, is spotless. Service is personal and flawless. The common areas are luxurious and tasteful and decorated with extreme attention to detail.
There's a swimming pool, outdoor dining area and a small garden with views of the surrounding area. We felt welcome and appreciated throughout our entire visit. As for the area, Waterkloof Ridge is one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in RSA. There are many embassies in the immediate neighborhood and a park within walling distance where one can jog or just go for a long walk. Stay here if you want a quiet and luxurious place to stay....I can see this as being a great place for a wedding or business meeting also.

Stayed June 2010, travelled with family
