I cannot rate this place highly enough. My husband and I visited Cape Town with another couple. It was our first time in Cape Town, and we weren't sure where to stay. We stayed at Dysart for a week, and it was perfect for us! They have two buildings right next to each other on a quiet street off of the main drag in Green Point. It was secluded but a 5 minute walk to nice restaurants (try El Burro for delicious margaritas and Mexican food and go to Manos for a nice steak!) and shops in Green Point and a 20 minute walk to the V&A. We and our friends were put in the building next to the main one. This building only has two rooms (though they are planning to add a few more rooms), and it was great for us since we felt like we had the whole house to ourselves. Our room had a nice patio that overlooked the small plunge pool and lounge chairs outside. The main building (25 feet away from ours) has a nice outdoor seating area with a larger pool and more lounge chairs. We also ate our breakfasts out here except for the last day when it was raining.
And, the breakfasts... They are delicious (fruit, bread, yogurt, smoked salmon etc), and you can order a hot breakfast every day and the LOVELY ladies in the kitchen will make you delicious cappuccinos and lattes.
The staff is amazing, and like I said, treat you with such hospitality and warmth that you feel like royalty or at home :) They always called and made reservations for us and had a few recommendations to give as well. They made every effort to serve us. We were able to chat with the owner, and he even invited us up for a glass of wine. I think the best example of how far they will go is this: shortly after arriving at the airport to leave Cape Town, I realized I had left my passport in my room! My husband and I frantically called the hotel and talked to one of the lovely ladies. They sent someone immediately to the airport and dropped it off. I am not sure if it was one of the owners who dropped it off, but she wouldn't accept money from us and just said it was a service on behalf of the hotel.....
The rooms are decorated in an eclectic manner, the bed was very comfortable. Only downsides are parking on the small street, but again, the staff help with this. Additionally, there isn't a ton of privacy from the bathroom to the bedroom as it's a frosted glass door, but my husband and I didn't mind. The shower is amazing too!
Stay here! I don't think you will regret it.
