My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights in October, en route back to the UK from Hluhluwe game reserve (soooo much better value than Kruger!)
There is absolutely nothing I could think of to fault the Derwent. The hotel itself is lovely with great facilities including a nice pool area. The room was a little on the small side but very nicely done out, very comfortable and a view of Table Mountain from the balcony - what more can you want.
Location wise, the Derwent is perfect. It is in a quiet road but 5-10 minutes (safe) walk to Long Street, going past a couple of nice bars and restaurants on the way.
And too much cannot be said for the staff at the Derwent. Vuyu especially was incredibly helpful and pleasant.
When we go back to CT there is only one place we would consider staying - thank you everyone at Derwent House.

- 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
