“Would stay here again”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This was our 1st trip to Cape Town from England and the Oxford House proved a very good choice of place to stay. It is very central, convenient for some great restaurants and a supermarket, with the fantastic harbour area within walking distance. We felt safe when we walked out after dark to the restaurants. We stayed in August which is winter in S.A. but to us it was better than our summer weather. The mornings start off lovely and sunny and fresh and it soon heats up to around 25 degrees or more. There is a tendency for a sea fret to come in during the afternoon over the harbour, which makes it quite chilly in that area but we just moved further inland. There's plenty to do and see and the Oxford House staff are very happy to help with everything. My one gripe is the number of towels provided in the room. It seems each room is only alloted towels for 1 person, even if more people are staying in the room. As the towels are changed daily, I had to keep trying to explain that my husband and I need more than 1 hand towel between us but it seemed quite difficult to make the conceiage understand at times. The noise from the main road, which is about 3 min walk away, was quite bad in the mornings. Overall a very clean and helpful place and we would stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights, rooms were clean and large and looked exactly like the pics shown on the internet. The location was perfect, walking distance to restaurants and a 5 minute drive to the Waterfront. Natalie was very helpful and went out her way for us. Will definitely return to Oxford House.
