What a great place. Small, boutique hotel with great friendly staff. Fantastic breakfast, lovely rooms and great service. If the wifi worked a bit better and the pool was a bit bigger it would be perfect. This is the place to stay in Cape Town.

But it didn't stop there. The staff at this hotel were cheerful, helpful, and genuinely interested in our well-being. If we were lying by the pool and...

I travel widely and this is one of the most friendly and professionally run hotel I have stayed in. I had a 'standard' room but it was extremely comfortable and quiet. All the staff were excellent and went out of their way to help me. The location is perfect with excellent restaurants near by.
