“Still just as great”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

4th time around and will be back again! As always the best staff that seems happy to see you again, and again. This time discovered the Sunday market in Cape Quarter, a tiny version of Buscuit Mill Market taking place on Saturdays.

Antrim villa is a good option when you have a rented car. The area looks a bit dangerous at night, I wouldn`t recommend walking alone at night to look for a restaurant. The room is good, clean, simple. May be a little noisy, it depends on the other guests. Inernet was not working and nobody was there to help. During summer, room may get warm.

Nice villa, very carefully decorated. Very much like staying in a house. The scandinavian breakfast was perfect for us. No aircon, but we did not miss it even if we had some really hot days. Beautiful pool, but too cold in the water when we where there.

Just love staying at Antrim Villa whenever I am in Cape Town! Friendly staff, clean & bright & tasty breakfasts. Also ideal for anyone who needs to get into the city centre without too many traffic headaches! Very well located for the Waterfront, Seapoint and Greenpoint - you can walk almost anywhere quite easily. My favourite though - the freshly-baked muffins - Mmmm....

Room Tip: I like the rooms by the pool - feel like I am on a tropical island somewhere!

The position is good in a quiet road in green point 10 mins walk from the stadium. The villa itself is very stylish . The standard rooms are fairly small but well maintained with a pretty setting around the pool. The superior rooms are really big and stylish.
The best thing about the villa is undoubtedly the staff who are very welcoming and professional. There are lots of small touches to make you feel at home eg welcome drink, bath robes and turn down service in the evening
If I had one small criticism it is the breakfast closing and checkout were both earlier than I would have expected (9.30/10.00 respectively) for a place in this price range.
Nevertheless I would stay here again as have stayed in several guest houses in the vicinity and this one of our favourites

Extremely clean and comfortable. Well located for an easy walk to the Greenpoint Stadium

Room Tip: Poolside rooms have a better outlook than the inside rooms
