I always take the reviews on here witha pinch of salt as its hard to know if the people leaving the reviews have high standards or not. This is the first time i have ever been tempted to leave a review on this website - and believe me- we have very very high standards. But Derwent House did not let us down.
The owners- Carol and Jo- are running an absolutely fantastic hotel here. Their attention to detail is fantastic. We usually only stay at large 5* hotels as boutique hotels usually get too many things wrong. But this experience has changed my opinion.
The living area is so inviting we spent a lot of time in front of the roaring fire. The complimentary afternoon tea and cake is delicious and if you fancy a night cap when you get in from a night out there is complimentary port and sherry.
The breakfast spread is better than anything you would find at a 5* hotel. This hotel is an absolute gem and i cant speak highly enough of the owners and the staff. the little touches (electric blankets for winter/ pay as you go SA phones for guests to use etc) make it a very special place.
- 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
