SO COZY and great value! The hotel itself is in a charming old building with a lovely garden and pool area. The main house has porches with lots of comfy seating for your morning coffee or nightcap. There is a fireplace inside in the lounge. The rooms have everything you'd expect and need, and the decor is charming. The ownder puts out a really nice breakfast spread and offers made to order cooked items as well. He's very easy going and is more than happy to make suggestions on what to see and do and where to eat. Though, contact him in advance of your trip. Dinner reservations are strongly reccommended. It is situated only a fe wminutes walk to Heugenot Street (main strip) with all the restaurants and shopping.
The details: The bathrooms have stand up showers and tubs with hair dryers and all the toilettries you may need. There are heated floors in the bathroom and sleeping area (!!), as well as an air conditioning/heating unit. The room is spacious with lots of storage and the beds are comfy. Only drawbacks are the rooms have no TV and they have a slight ant problem. Mostly found them in the bathroom and in the main house - likely due to the hmidity and the gardens outside. Tiny ants, yes.. but I even found some in the home made granola at the breakfast bar. Also, the shops close up tight right at 5:00 and the restaurants don't go into dinner service until around 7:00 (don't forget your reservation).
There is a good mix of high end art gallery type shops, to souvenier shops - nothing junky here and prices are a bit lower than capetown. Lots of yummy bakeries, coffee and chocolate shops. We had dinner at Taki's Pub on the first night (have the Mousakka) and at Dutch East (Fusion cuisine) on our second night. Great mid-priced options, though there are some more upscale options as well.
