          This is pure luxury and the most efficiently run little family guest house (it fully deserves its 5 stars). Lovely views over False Bay and an easy ride to the beach. And the owner is a gem. I call this Versailles by the Sea!

          Bonjour, Je me permets d'intervenir sur le commentaire de " catvdh8" que je trouve particulièrement désobligeant et malhonnête au vu des prestations offertes par le Colona Castle et son équipe ! Particulièrement habitué à sillonner le monde dans les plus beaux endroits et hôtels de luxe, je peux dire sans exagération que le Colona Castle fait partie de ces endroits magiques avec un cachet que ne saurait offrir bien des grands hôtels de ce monde malgré leurs prestations et équipements de haut de gamme ! Nous avons passé une semaine extraordinaire en famille, avec cette impression de vivre hors du temps, dans un décor de château, une attention et une gentillesse de tous les instants de la part des propriétaires et de leur équipe, une personnalisation qui nous a presque donné l'impression d'être dans notre propre demeure ! Si je reprends point par point vos critiques "catvdh8": Vous reprochez l'éloignement du centre du Cap ! N'importe quoi ! On n'est pas si loin que ça du centre et en prime on a le calme ! De plus, les départs en excursion se font sans problème de l'hôtel ! Ce que vous appelez avec, semble-t'il, un certain mépris " chambres d'hôtes", sont pour ma part des suites de très bon goût et de grand confort, cela a un prix ! Si vous n'aimez pas ce système et ses tarifs, que venez- vous donc y faire ? Allez dans un "vrai" hôtel qui correspondra plus à votre standing low-cost (comme votre orthographe) ! Qu'appelez-vous un petit déjeuner incomplet ? Un manque de quantité de produits bas de gamme servi à outrance à des vacanciers braillards qui ne pensent qu'à se gaver de bon matin ?! Pour ma part, ce petit déjeuner raffiné, servi dans de la belle vaisselle par des employés aimables et stylés, avec des produits frais et de qualité, et, en face de soi, une vue magnifique me fait douter de vos capacités à apprécier le vrai luxe ! Vous me semblez du genre à regretter le moindre sou que vous dépensez et à partir de là, pour auto-justifier votre pingrerie, vous essayez de dénigrer le responsable involontaire de votre mauvaise foi, à savoir l'hôtelier, dans ce qui ne me parait être qu'une mesquine revanche ! Cordialement à toute l'équipe du Colona Castle !
