Gordons Guesthouse
Reviewed 29 November 2013

A guesthouse in the posh neighbourhood of De Waterkant, beautifull, gorgeous and well-kept house, rooms are grand and spacious, except for one thing the below 2 rooms share the ultra spacious grand bathroom fit for a king, the top room has an ensuite bathroom. Walking distance from the V&A, very safe neighbourhood and Gordon's a great host, friendly and can also arrange a driver for you excursions for cheap, he even offered to drive us around in his car. Theres a restaurant close by called Cubana, fab Cuban food and a wide range of beverages for reasonable rates...so is Piano Bar.

Room Tip: The top room has an ensuite bathroom, the below two rooms share the grand bathroom

For the record, Gordon's rents out rooms in his home. He has three rooms available and the price is based on one room. Gordon has a gorgeous home in an upscale and safe area of town...De Waterkant. Walking distance to most attractions or a short taxi ride.

Gordon has a great host. We shared stories, shots of jack Daniels and wine, did our laundry and he even drove us around to where we needed to go when he was free.

If you like home stays this is the place for you!!!

Room Tip: The room I stayed in is Upstairs close to the kitchen. It has an ensuite toilet and shower, but it...
