Where to begin. On arrival we were met by Eberhart the lovely German owner who showed us to our room, which was amazing. He pointed out all the facilities and explained about the honesty bar the kitchen and times of breakfast. As it was late afternoon he made a few phone calls to local restaurants and off we set for...

My stay at The Walden Suites was beautiful. The location, the staff and the house itself are perfect for some quiet days in Cape Town. Great welcome by Roderick, Melanie and the rest of the team. Beautiful long pool to relax, free parking inside the property available as well.

This guesthouse is lovely, it is in a quiet location but not far from the city and the beaches. We had the large downstairs room which had a terrace that goes straight out to the pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they became good friends by the end of our stay. I would have liked the option of...

We arrived recently in Cape Town, with another couple, on a 10 day vacation. As the other couple is originally from Cape Town, they insisted we find a place only in the Sea Point area. After a long web search, we unanimously agreed on Walden Suites in Fresnaye. We booked relatively late, so there were only two rooms available with...

We stayed with my girlfriend for only 2 nights, but after settling in I wished we had allowed more time to just chill here. Lovely place with great character. It's very quiet and peaceful (or at least was when we went) being a bit up on the mountainside but in easy reach to the beach and restaurants. We stayed on...

We generally enjoyed staying at the Walden Suites. The staff members are very helpful and professional. The accomodation is stylish and the revamped older style house gives a comfortable feeling. A good breakfast is offered with a wide variety of offerings. A downside are the wooden floors that make any movement, and surely with children, noticeable for the other guests....

We had a very pleasant time at the Walden Suites, well taken care of by Tina, Roderick, Melanie, Lena and Eberhart. The atmosphere was familiar not only with them, but also with the other guests staying at the house! Compared to last year's holiday in a big chain in Mauritius, it felt great to be able to just order up...

We had a truly great stay at Walden Suites over X-mas. It felt like being at home from the first second we arrived. Service; rooms; breakfast and hospitality was all more than we could ask for.
