We visited Cape Town in May and were very happy with our accommodation at Derwent House. Communication with DW prior to our arrival was excellent with staff providing help selecting a room and loads of good information about the city passed along before we even left Canada.
This is a place where you can really unfold and feel like you are at home. We were very comfortable taking advantage of the living room after a busy day exploring this amazing city, so the smallish bedrooms are not really an issue since the entire house is available for guests to enjoy.....and we did!
The decor is inviting and modern with many interesting paintings and other pieces to captivate the eye.
We liked all the recommended restaurants in the neighbourhood ....our favorite was the Paradiso which staff booked for us even prior to our arrival in CT.
We adored the staff who were all so helpful and engaged in the operation of the house. No question or request went unanswered.
The location of DW was fantastic and we enjoyed the stroll downtown which is about 45 minutes unless you stop and shop along the way.....which of course we did.
If you choose DW you will have a lovely stay in Cape Town.
- 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
