“very nice guesthouse”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Antrim Villa is a very nice guesthouse with friendly and helpful stuff. The pool area is a beautiful oasis to relax after a long flight, holiday or day in the city. The Location is great - it is just a 15 minutes walk to the Waterfront. There is also safe parking.

Antrim Villas is a small B&B wonderfully located one block back from the beach. It is very quiet and our room had no tv BUT I must say the staff were wonderful. Ingrid booked up two tours we went on which went very smoothly and also arranged the transfer to airport for us. Maureen was a gem and very friendly to us. Breakfast was great but the toaster was hopeless.Unlimited tea and coffee was lovely. We did not try the pool as it was too cold but it looked very inviting.
I think if we stayed again I would opt for a superior room as they were a bit bigger. My only complaint is that due to the room sizing the bathroom had a sliding door which is not very private! The shower was very hot and efficient
Everywhere was scrupulously clean and although the security was a surprise it was nice to be so well looked after.
Easy reach of restaurants on Main Street, Hussars being one of them which was superb.

Room Tip: go for superior rather than standard.

As always, I experienced great hospitality from the staff at Antrim Villa when I stayed there recently. The guesthouse was full but every guest was given the attention they needed. Wonderful to meet people from other countries around the breakfast table too!

Room Tip: Rooms at the pool will be the quietest.

After hunting around for accommodation in Cape Town for ages we finally settled on Antrim Villa and are thrilled we did. While it doesn't have a sea or mountain view, this place makes up for it with amazing staff, fantastic rooms and a very central location. The rooms are very spacious and have everything you need. The pool was very inviting, although unfortunately it just wasn't hot enough for us take a dip. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and served up an amazing breakfast every day. The villa has secure parking and has 24 hour security which made us feel completely safe. This was the perfect base for us to explore Cape Town. Can highly recommend the Antrim Villa.

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.
