Modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Delicious breakfast, friendly welcoming staff. Highly recommended. Try not be on same level as dining room. Early morning kitchen prep did wake me earlier than hoped

We stayed at this Hotel for 5 nights in transit to our Safari. We had one of the larger rooms upstairs, I couldn't have been happier. The décor is very modern, room was totally clean with all supplies, including Hair Dryer. While the property was great, what really made this such an exceptional experience was the staff- thank you to them all, especially Gilbert for waking us up early and making sure we had a "take away" breakfast. All the ladies were fantastic, highest caliber. We had considered staying at a larger property and I'm glad we didn't, the location was very central to water front and restaurants, there were always Taxis for us within 5 minutes of calling. A+++ from a tough critic.

Room Tip: Opt for a larger room if possible. I don't believe they had a fitness center, but they have an...

From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly and assisted by Michelle and Bianca.
Their warmth and kindness in advising us in great places to eat and chill out was very helpful in our settling in.
Breakfast is incredible and so were the lovely ladies serving and preparing it for us.
My only regret is how short our stay was:(

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Villa Zest for 4 nights and had an absolutely fantastic experience. I had stayed there 5 years previously and it was every bit as great as I remember it. The location is an excellent to use as a base for exploring Cape Town as well as for walking a few blocks down the street to grab a nice dinner or glass of wine. And the staff make that extremely easy with their knowledgeable restaurant recommendations (they've eaten at all the great spots) and quickness to grab you a reservation or taxi if needed. Gilbert was working in the evenings during our stay and he couldn't have been more pleasant, professional or helpful. 't is a funky, boutique hotel that prioritizes the things I look for in a hotel room - comfy bed with luxury linens and a good shower. It isn't super fancy, but is a lot of fun. I can't recommend enough.

Small but perfectly formed in a great location, being walking distance to the town centre and the famous water front area. Helpful friendly staff gave great advice on both tours and restaurants and nothing was too much trouble to organize. I normally stay in big impersonal 4 star hotels for business and this made a pleasent change which I enjoyed more than I thought I would.

Very helpful staff. Good location. Clean rooms. Nice swimming pool with seating area. Excellent breakfasts. Nice communal living area with balcony. Stylish look and feel to the hotel.

Our bedroom was quite small and packed full of cushions that took up valuable space. There was no mini fridge. And the en suite shower didn't have a proper door, just a "saloon" door, which I found odd.

For the money I doubt you'll get much better in Cape Town - it was a very pleasant place and I'd happily return - but just a bit more space or luxury in the bedroom is necessary for Villa Zest to get 5 stars.

We stayed in the Villa Zest for 2 weeks - this small boutique hotel was just delightful as well as extremely well situated about 5 mins drive from the Conference Centre and near some excellent restaurants: we came for a conference and some holiday with family living in Cape Town... The Staff could not be more helpful, and did everything that was needed with a genuine grace and a smile. The room was very comfortable, and the lounge area where we had breakfast was delightful. The breakfasts were fabulous. Only downside was the size of the rooms which were a bit small but not a real problem. Thank you Villa Zest for making this a delightful stay.
