We had read about all the good reviews for Derwent House, but wondered if they could all be true. We wanted to experience what the fuss was all about. Wow! We were glad we stayed here. Everything was as described in the reviews.
We had a fantastic stay and would certainly stay here again without hesitation. We paid for a more expensive room and were not disappointed. It was large, spacious and bright. Bathroom was lovely – however, water pressure in shower was average. The breakfasts were much better than breakfasts at 5* hotels – fresh and not too much. The staff were well trained, efficient, friendly and helpful.
The hop-on hop-off bus stop (opposite the Lord Nelson hotel) was only 15 minutes walk from hotel. We bought the 2 days pass and had a great time in seeing Cape Town this way.
- 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
