We spent 2 nights at this well-situated accommodation. The picture gives the impression that your car will be in the driveway, but it is actually street parking unless you want to pay an extra fee. It is a safe area, however. The room was decent, but not very clean. Bugs on the floor, a hair clip from a prior guest, and dirty mirrors. The worst aspect was that the beds were extremely uncomfortable. In our room, 4 light bulbs (globes) were out or missing. The proprieter promised to get the lights fixed for us, but did nothing. When I mentioned this at our departure, she said that she had tried very hard but that the stores had closed early. I'm badly put off by such "storytelling"... Unfortunately, the great location was cancelled out by our sore backs and negative experiences. I travel to Cape Town quite a bit and have lived in South Africa for 8 years (US expat). I will not use this establishment again.
