“Chic style and excellent hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2008

I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cape Town and booked 2inn1 based on previous Trip Advisor reviews.

What a great decision. 2inn1 looks as good, if not better in real life than it does in the photographs. The whole property is very stylish and meticulously maintained by Klaus, Chris and their team.

Nothing is too much trouble either. Let me give you and example. Thanks to a 5am start (shark diving), we decided to get a take-away and chill out in the room one evening. Not only did Klaus provide us with the "Mr Delivery" menu of all local take-aways but on realising our chosen restaurant was only 5 mins away, he called through the order himself, got in his car, fetched it, paid for it and presented it to us with plates and napkins in our room!! He then added the cost of the food to our room bill with NO EXTRA charge for delivery. If that isn't service, I don't know what is.

Great venue, great people, great value.

We stayed at the 2inn1 for the second time - and we will always stay there whenever we visit the cape area to enjoy the unique combination of a stylish environmemt and a professional service. You see excellence in every detail of the arrangement and outfit of the rooms, the breakfast, pool maintenance, Internet access...and above all the very personal way you are treated as a guest, including arrangements of tours and touristice advice and help whenever youneed it.

We had a fantastic 5 night stay here. The setting is beautiful, the interior very nice but above all it is the service we received which makes this such a special place. Klaus, Chris, Saadiqah and all the other staff were fantastic, nothing is too much bother for any of them. If chain hotels are not your thing then you must stay here!

We stayed 5 nights in September, and just wanted to endorse what all the other reviewers have said. We have been to many hotels and lodges and B&Bs around the world, and I can't think of any (and there have been some excellent ones) where the service levels and the feeling that you are a welcome guest has been so overwhelming. We would catch ourselves driving back to the B&B in the afternoons, or after dinner, saying things like "Time to head home". We really did feel as if it was home. (If only.)
Klaus and Chris and their staff are just fantastic, and I only hope this place is there for some time to come!
As just one of many examples of some of the little things that particularly impressed us: On arrival we mentioned in casual conversation where we had made restaurant reservations for 2 of the nights of our stay. Without any further mention of this, we discovered they phoned both restaurants to re-confirm our reservations, relieving us of that obligation.
It is hard to imagine there is any room for improvement here: this is our idea of the perfect B&B without question.
