My wife and I went South Africa for our honeymoon and Derwent House was the first stop on our trip. We stayed 3 nights and everything about it was perfect. We arrived very late in the evening and someone was there to check us in and serve us complimentary wine and snacks to welcome us. Our bedroom was wonderful with 2 very cozy decks, one with a partial view of the mountain and the other overlooking the pool. Comfortable, exquisite shower, and there was a nice flat screen TV with a DVD player to use for the many complimentary dvd's downstairs to choose from.
Aside from the beautiful house itself, along with the lovely pool area and convenient location near many good restaurants and in walking distance to downtown, the best part of Derwent house is the service and staff. Everyone we encountered truly could not have been more friendly and ready to make our stay as perfect as possible. We felt like guests in a favorite relative's home. Due to our busy sight-seeing schedule, we only used the hot tub once, but as soon as we got in, knowing that it was our honeymoon, the staff brought out a complimentary bottle of champagne and some chips. They make every effort to ensure that your stay is enjoyable.
I really can't say enough good things about Derwent House. It really is the perfect stop for anyone. We are the kind of people who always like to try different things and not do the same thing twice, but I must say, if we ever get a chance to visit Cape Town again, it would near impossible to not book a room back at the Derwent House. It was that wonderful.

- 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
