The staff were kind and compassionate. The grounds are beautiful and tranquil. From the minute we entered the grounds we felt relaxed. It has good security as well. Completely forgot that we were in the middle of a busy suburb. The food was also scrumptious.

I really enjoyed my stay at Palm House, it was quiet and relaxing. The area by the pool and my room were highlights. The property would benefit from a lighter/brighter feel as, in places darker furnishings and decoration detracted from a lovely property. A litle more effort in grilling cooked breakfasts would also be of benefit.

Visited for 6 nights while visiting for 50th birthday, primarily for cricket match at Newlands Stadium, which is close by. We arrived a few hours early due to early flight arrival but the guest house were more than happy to hold our luggage while we explored for a few hours prior to check in, also offering us coffee and the...

Literally couldn't write a bad review even if I wanted to. Majestic old house, friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, amazing food and very central. Quick fifteen minute drive botanical gardens, surfers beaches, restaurant strips and historical sites. Also offers the best farmhouse breakfast in town. Had an awesome midweek stay!

Charming place, value for money. Group of guys watching the cricket and playing golf. Pool house ideal for us, not too luxurious, but main hotel is! Breakfast wonderful, cooked fresh. Staff friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend for couples, but avoid pool house.

We had a final night of our holidays from the uk in one of the two pool house rooms. Service was excellent, with very helpful staff. Pool/ garden were lovely, and though we didn't visit the bar room it looked great. We were prompted to pop out for dinner (with good tip) though they do offer some food if required....

The place is clean but the room is getting old, the bathroom was too tiny and we could hardly open the door to get inside as there is the toilet just behind the door, the breakfast was average, egg and sausage are too oily. Poor sleeping as very hot and mosquitoes.

“As a family we stayed in one of the cottages. It was great. With three young children I am always conscious of noise - either the noise we make or the noise of young revelers coming in late. We could be as noisy as we needed knowing that we were not disturbing anybody nor were we disturbed by anybody else.”
