...they say location is everything, and whilst this hotel does have an excellent location I would still stay here if it was in the middle of nowhere. The hotel feels like a private home, the artwork and design are perfect, all the spaces conspire to ensure the guests feel at home yet are sociable too. My previous 2 visits to Cape Town have been at Cape Grace and whilst a superb hotel I now feel disappointed to have missed out on 2 extra stays at Derwent House.
The owners could not be more helpful or insightful, I was on a business trip, but it was still interesting (even if I was a little envious) to hear them advising their holiday guests of all the best places to visit.
The rooms are beautiful, the lounge is beautiful, the pool area is beautiful, there is an excellent attention to detail and ability from the owners to second guess all the guests needs.
I wish I could transport this hotel with me on all my business trips
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a city renowned for hospitality, Derwent House stands out as one of Cape Town's leading boutique guesthouses. Located in the heart of the vibrant Tamboerskloof/Gardens neighbourhood, this small hotel combines historic charm, contemporary Afro-chic style and all mod-cons for a uniquely Capetonian blend of ambience, warmth, and comfort. Our wonderful team completes the picture -- we go the extra mile for you and our guests leave as friends. We love colour and celebrate African design - you'll find it everywhere. But when it comes to the basics - like breakfast, bedding, showers, climate control, Wi-fi or news from home - we don't compromise so you don't have to. At Derwent House, you're steps away from the hustle and buzz of Kloof Street, with its collection of superb restaurants, bars and trendy boutiques--and just a few further to the nightlife hub of Bree and Long Streets. Yet just a short car journey from the Table Mountain cable car, the beaches of Clifton or Camp's Bay, and the V&A Waterfront. There's nowhere more central -- but come and see for yourself. We're waiting for you! ... more less
