We stayed for 8 days in January. The staff are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble. They recommended several restaurants during our stay and each one was as good as they said it would be. There were several restaurants within 5 minutes walk which were very good indeed. We also took a private tour of the winelands - ask for Jamie, he made the day a most memorable experience.
The breakfast was a delight, the hot options were freshly cooked and tasty.
We had a corner room in the main building with balcony with views towards Table Mountain. Perfect for an afternoon glass of wine watching the sun go down.
The only slight downside with the location is the uphill walk back from the Waterfront (getting there is no problem - downhill all they way in about 1 hour). I suggest you get a taxi every time (v cheap).
- 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
