“Like home..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

A lovely place with a team willing to help and guide you. We stayed at the rooms close to the little garden and pool. We were helped to re arrange the trip to include some Safari. The rental car was delivered to Antrim which saved time and hustle. Love the breakfast and the team. No question is too small or unimportant..I will be back ..

Antrim Villa is a very well maintained guest house with helpful, friendly staff. The rooms are well sized and decorated, although the bathroom in my room was a little tight. Towels, toiletries and spare pillows/blankets were provided. There is a swimming pool and the guest house now has free Wi-Fi throughout although the strength of the signal varies greatly and can drop off completely out the back by the pool and room 8 where I was staying.

There is a comfortable and fair sized lounge with small kitchenette where breakfast is served in the morning and is available for you to use during the rest of the day. As well as a Scandinavian breakfast buffet service, with staff on hand to assist and tidy after you, there's an honesty bar/fridge - take what you need and write it down on the sheet under your room number, then ay on departure.

Joy was very helpful over email in answering questions about possible itineraries before I arrived in Cape Town, and Ingrid followed that up once I arrived by being very helpful booking the activities and trips I requested and arranging pick up from the villa and transfer to the airport. There is a security/support person on the property at night and the entrance is gated, but you are able to come and go at your leisure.

Very close to the stadium at Green Point, but a good 30+ minute walk to the V&A Waterfront or Long Street areas, so you'll want to budget for taxis.

The service and comfort of this hotel were fantastic and exceeded my expectations. There are some charming, nice touches as well about the service - I won't spoil them by telling you what they are!

We really enjoyed our stay tremendously. We went to watch the Linken Park concert in Nov 2012 and flew down from Joburg to Cape Town. We immediately felt home with the warm hospitality we received. We had great company after we returned from the show that evening, and my boyfriend had wine and chatted about food etc with the owners. Really stunning people, with stunning hospitality. He even brought back freshly baked bread that the owner baked, as well as fresh fruit and could not stop talking about what a great chat he had with the owners. I would recommend staying there to anybody visiting Cape Town. Such a clean, neat and warm atmosphere. In walking distance from everything you need, wich was great for us as we just walked to the concert. No hassle of finding parking etc. Thank you for making it feel like our home away from home. We will def be booking with you when we go down to Cape town again.

My first impression was so good! And it confirmed during the stay. The hotel is so good taste decorating, the staff are FANTASTIC!! They made everththing for your stay be perfect! They have a transfer to pic you at airport, they booked all the tours (they a have a book in the living room with a lot of tips and things to do in South África). And when I had a problem with the Safari Tour (the Inverdoorn confirmed the time to pick me up at hotel and didn't show up) - Joy Made everything was possible and booked another one for me!
I just want to say THANK YOU to the staff of Antrimvilla for Made my stay here so wonderfull!!! Thanks Joy, Ingrid, Pepe, Maureen!! You are awesome!

Antrim Villa is located in a very nice portion of the city, close to a walking distance from the Water Front. The house itself is one of the most beautiful constrictions I've ever seen, and the rooms are VERY comfortable. But in my opinion the best thing that Antrim Villa has to offer is its very lovingly and caring staff!!! Joy and Ingrid are very helpful, and everyone, from the people who help with the breakfast in the morning to the guys that are there all night to help us with anything that is necessary, are just so nice and helpful that words can't describe it! Definitely one of the best options in Cape Town!

I travel regularly to Cape Town on business and it was great to return to my 'home away from home' recently. Always a warm and friendly welcome, comfortable room, free Wi-Fi and a great breakfast! A new touch is the option of a full hot breakfast - the perfect way to start the day. Thank you everyone at Antrim Villa for making me feel so special - look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Room 2 in Winter is great because you have the option of a bath or shower!
