This review is long overdue but we stayed here during our honeymoon in February 2013 and were so happy with our choice. Location was perfect and everyone we encountered here was so lovely and helpful. Local knowledge was fantastic and definitely a good choice for anyone's first trip if they're not sure where is worth visiting. We took some fantastic pictures on the grounds which we used on our 'Thank You' cards after the wedding. Beautiful. Restaurants nearby are highly recommended.

My husband and I have had the best time on our honeymoon staying at Derwent. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms and grounds are beautiful. It is conveniently located near great restaurants and attractions!

We enjoyed 6 nights in the self catering apartment and one night in the main building, at the end of our trip. Fantastic experience in every respect, starting from our initial email enquiry to Carol, who was brilliant in providing so much local knowlege and assistance. Nothing was too much trouble. We were warmly greeted on arrival, by Vuyo (on a cold and wet day), and immediately felt at home. We have nothing but high praise for everyone at Derwent House. Both Vuyo and Dene gave us some great suggestions for our self-drive itinerary and were more than happy to make accommodation bookings for us. Both styles of accommodation were perfect. Highly recommend and hope to return one day.

brilliant staff - everyone was hugely attentive, helpful without being intrusive. Glad that we met Carol as she makes the place even more special and home from home. Highly recommended and worthy a visit.

Staying here is like a home away from home. The layout is great giving each room ample privacy. The family room we stayed in had great views of table mountain from the bedroom and views of the ocean (even though far away) from the private balcony. Conveniently located to aces table mountain and the water front however a little ways of a walk from Kloof street but a little walking never killed anyone. The staff were great and very attentive to our needs and provided ample suggestions when asked.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Table Mountain.

Staying in Derwent was able to make my stay in Cape Town even better than I expected. The team there were fantastic! They were not only very accommodating of requests, helping us book tours, restos, etc, but I really appreciated all the tips on the local restaurants and vineyards. They really take the time to ask you about your preferences before they recommend to make sure their suggestions don't disappoint. What also impressed me was the fact that they offered local pre-paid phones which you can borrow and just top up. It made roaming around and calling for a cab easier.
The hotel itself isn't in the city center, which I preferred, but it has a good view of table mountain. The hotel has the look of a house which was converted into a hotel which means a smaller space but gave it a homey and cosy vibe.
This trip being my first time to Africa, they were able to make me feel comfortable and at home that I would definitely recommend everyone to stay here. Would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and truly felt like we were at home. The guest house is very well located with restaurants close by and is decorated beautifully. We truly appreciated the great advice and service provided by Denee and the team and cant say enough about the attention to detail. If you are looking for a perfect place to use as your home base while in Cape Town, we can't imagine a better place than this.

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
