Derwent was the first stop on our 10 day trip to South Africa, and the best (and cheapest) of the four places we stayed (and I include the Mount Nelson) in terms of value, friendliness of the greeting, rooms, service and common areas.
We were helped with car hire, airport pick up, and asked each morning what we were planning for the day so they could make any bookings required. They even lent us an adaptor plug for the week. We stayed in two rooms, a ground floor room with a jacuzzi (great fun) and an upstairs room with views of Table Mountain and a large terrace. Both were very comfortable (if on the small side - that's the only possible negative really).
The lounge, pool and terrace areas are beautiful, bathed in sunlight and deeply relaxing. I really can't recommend highly enough - we'll be back in a shot.
- 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
