We stayed for 3 nights in Derwent House in November and it was fantastic. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of many bars and restaurants and the staff could not be more helpful. They very kindly arranged transfers for us from the airport to Franschhoek before we even stayed at Derwent House and we really appreciated the fact that they knew our names and asked us what we were up to each day and whether there was anything they could do to help.
The rooms are very nicely decorated, although i agree with the previous reviewer, they are on the small side, the lounge and pool area are big enough that there is no need to spend much time in your room anyway. The honesty bar, free tea, coffee and cakes make for a very relaxing stay. The breakfasts are also amazing! I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying 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
