The hotel is located pretty much near everything you will ever need to see or do. The Table Mountain back drop was simply stunning and the hotel itself is luxurious, with all the comfort anyone could want for.
There are quality restaurants right on the hotel doorstep and getting around is very easy due to its centralised location.
The room I stayed in was extremely well kept, with all mod cons including wifi which was invaluable. Unfortunately, I was there for work which meant I didn't have enough time to enjoy the hot tub outside of my room! All of the furniture is very inviting and I only wish I had more time to stay inside.
The breakfast served at Derwent House is more than comprehensive, both cold and hot menus are all unmissable and set you up perfectly for whatever maybe in store for you during the day. French toast and bacon being a particular favourite!
All of the staff are always more than happy to help and are accommodating, making sure you have everything you need all of the time and I could not have felt more welcome.
Every detail in the hotel has been though about. Everyday a small paper scroll is left on your pillow containing historical facts relating to the particular date of your stay. The complimentary sherry and port also proved to be the perfect nightcap.
I would recommend a stay here to anyone whether it be on business or for pleasure.
- 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
