I was visiting capetown for the first time to attend a wedding of a friend who lived in tamboerskloof. Wanting to be near the family we opted to stay in this region and I am so glad we did! It is a very safe area, set back off the busy roads and beautifully peaceful. Prices for accocodation in this area vary but we chose Radium hall due to it's good reviews and pictures of the amazing view of table mountain and we were not dissapointed. Being used to the ridiculous rates of London we were slightly dubious that all may not be as it seems because of the low price, but when we arrived it supparsed all expectations. The rooms are so spacious, clean and well presented. The bed was so comfy I regretted having to get up and enjoy the city and the bathroom always clean and very modern. Best of all is the view, every room has a balcony that opens out onto the most breathtaking view of table mountain, lions head abd out across the whole of cape town, which is just as beautiful at night with a bottle of wine on the terrace as it is in the glorious morning sunshine over breakfast. We were greeted by Julia who let us in, gave us the keys, kindly brought us some cold juice and let us be, there was no fuss, no big sell and after a long flight it was perfect. We stayed for 6 nights and by the end it felt like home. Julia and all the other staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble and always with a smile. The owner was also around periodically through out the day, so helpful, full of usefull local information and happy to assist in anyway. If you walk 10 minutes down the road Tamboerskloof itself is a maze of cool and relaxed bars and destination restaurants, it is a hilly region so may not be walkable for older people or those with small children but a cab to kloofneck road is 30 rand (1.50) abd can be hailed from the streets. It is not walking distance from the center of cape town but cabs are so reliable and affordable (expect to pay about 40 rand to the waterfront, which is about £2.50) and I would say it was definatly a price I was happy to pay for the amazing views from radium hall. I will absolutely be going back!
