We only left this hotel yesterday but were so impressed that we wanted to post a review straight away. I can honestly say that we received the best service that we have ever had at any hotel, large or small. Every member of staff we came across introduced themselves personally, and Carol and Jo were so helpful and knowledgeable with regard to trips and restaurants, and booked anything we wished for us. They even gave us a list of recommended vineyards to visit at our next destination, Franschoek, and tried to book a restaurant for us in the village.
The cooked breakfasts were fantastic and the honesty bar/kitchen was very well stocked. The decor throughout the hotel (particularly the lounge/dining area) is gorgeous.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Cape Town and cannot image receiving better service at any hotel in the city.
- 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
