“The place was breath taking!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013 via mobile

What an awesome place. Nice and spacious. Nice kitchen. Great entertainment room. The bedrooms were big, clean and tidy. It was one of the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Then bathroom which I had was amazing and big. The shower are big as well. I also noticed they do there bid for the environment. They save water which is always good in my book. The service was fantastic. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are crazy. Lovely fresh food and great omlettes. Coffee is also great. Overall I had a great stay and I will be definetly be back.

We booked 3nights for 7 people. Got a beautiful house with sea view. Decore is fabulous. Very good taste.Each room has its own charm.Staff is very helpful.
NO Air Con(we guys dint req it but just wan to mention) & i dont know why they dont have Microwave in such modern kitchen. The area is little bit congested b'coz of which we faced problem in Car Parking.
Overall good experience. Will surely recommend this place. Its perfect location for families or groups of friends who want to stay a little bit longer. Apparently these lovely and wonderful house are 4 Star graded by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.Cheers!! )))

Sweet Berries is part of a mini-empire of Sweetly-named guesthouses in Sea Point, a buzzing Bohemian neighbourhood of Cape Town.
We booked into Sweet Orange (you can also choose Sweet Lemon, Sweet Olive, or Sweet Ocean View) and were shunted into the nearby Sweet Berries with no logical explanation for the change.
Apparently, this happens a lot, according to other TripAdvisor reviews, so to book into one of the Sweet places seems to be a bit of a lottery. Not that I'm complaining.
Sweet Berries is actually a strip of four separate semi-detached guesthouses, and the one we stayed in was brightly-decorated, spotlessly clean, and very well appointed, with a kitchenette, TVs, and a little patio.
It felt more like a guest-home than a guest-house, and although you will ideally need a car to get around (it's about 10 to 15 minutes from the Cape Town CBD) it's within walking distance of the Sea Point Promenade, which is one of the great oceanside walks in the world.
It's also close to all the shops and facilities you may need. We stayed at Sweet Berries in June, which is the middle of the Cape Town winter, and is therefore low season, so prices are good. In fact, Cape Town in winter is a much better bet than Cape Town in mid-Summer.
The Atlantic is icy-cold all year round, and the weather tends to be more stable in Winter, even if you do get the occasional drizzle.
At least you don't get too much of the notorious Cape Town southeaster wind, which can ruin your holiday if you're not careful. Cape Town is beautiful, but the weather can be a lottery too.

We Thank Gussilber for his review and we are thankful for the comment, that our staff member did not clearly explained why we upgraded you to the Sweet Berries. This is definitely not our standard and we deeply regret that this happened and with deep regrets we apologies for it.
You booked the Junior Suite at Sweet Lemon Boutique Bed & Breakfast and shortly after your booking we received couple of days later a group booking for the remaining rooms and therefore upgraded you for your convenience, as groups are usually start they day early and therefore there is a lot of commotion in the house.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at one of the Sweet Berries Holiday Houses and we appreciate you value time for posting the review.
