We chose Parker Cottage as a base to explore Cape Town prior to embarking on a 62 Grand Cruise Adventure on a "slow boat to China". The Cottage is quaint and reminiscent of days gone by-but do not be mistaken, the bathroom was unique and charming and totally functional yet so different in a great way-not unlike my Grandparents home in Belgium where I stayed as a child 55+ years ago. The bed was large and comfortable. The room although a little small for a long stay was perfect for our needs. The staff were superb, even kind enough to stock up on necessities for us to take on the ship. The other like minded guests were a pleasure to chat to and get acquainted with, there was much camaraderie. The hyped up breakfast quite frankly was not hyped up enough, it's simply outstanding. The great reviews Parker Cottage receive are well justified. We had no hesitation in singing it's praises to the folk that joined us on the ship all having stayed at various higher priced establishments in Cape Town.
Parker cottage is a gem, relaxing, inviting, and they deliver what they promise.
P.S. Their coffee is in a class of it's own. Go see for yourself you will not be disappointed. Joanne and StewartMore
