The little hotel is well positioned within easy walking distance of the V and A waterfront. Apart from the V and A area there are restaurants even closer by if you only feel like a couple of minutes walk for your evening meal. The place is very well run with helpful and friendly staff. It has a small but pretty...

We visited Villa Zest after a short visit some years ago. The hotel is clean and centrally located. In front of the hotel a new highrise complex is being built which produced some noise during the day. Also with high winds building dust was blowing in the garden. Rooms are very nice. Clean and spacious. The villa in general is...

We spent 3 nights in Villa Zest Boutique hotel recently and found it to be a fantastic hotel in a great location. The staff at reception could not have helped us more, thank you Elton, Ernest, Gilbert, Laura and Tracey! We were particularly grateful for the help with our tickets for Table Mountain. The room was modern, clean and spacious....

We just wanted a one night stay in Cape Town but not right at the Waterfront. First impressions were that there was a lot of building work going on close by, and there was, but they start at 8am and finish by 4.30pm so didnt disturb us at all. Very friendly staff and a warm welcome from all. Our room...

We last visited the Villa Zest 5 years ago and, sad to say, it has changed from an exceptional boutique hotel into something very average and overpriced for the service provided. Gone is the superb, personal, concierge service and now you get a sense that the reception staff are very inexperienced. Our superior deluxe room (Xanadu) promised "a bath tub...

What a find. Discovered on Trip advisor and we just loved it. Tracey and her staff were brilliant. Nothing was too much. The decor is lovely and we had a fabulous room. Location great - 10 mins walk to the waterfront and locally some reasonably good restaurants. We did feel for the hotel as their view of the water has...

Brilliant hotel, 10 minute walk from waterfront. The staff are brilliant and hotel only has about 5 rooms so they make your stay very personable. A great centre point for all your travels around Cape Town.

Myself and my husband began our honeymoon trip with 4 nights in Villa Zest. Our stay was perfect. Location is wonderful, close to the Waterfront (walked sometimes, got taxis other times which were very reasonably priced). Staff in the hotel were amazing, really friendly nothing was too much trouble. Yummy breakfasts to fuel up before a busy day sightseeing. Really...

We discovered this hotel from reading Trip Advisor. It is located within a 10 minute walk of the waterfront area. The hotel is very modern and immaculate . The breakfast was superb. Lovely outdoor area around the pool.
