Head South is a great little boutique hotel in Green Point, convenient to pretty much everything in Cape Town. The honor bar is great, as is the breakfast, and the rooms are cozy. What really makes it a great place is the staff, particularly the owner Jeff. He had some awesome recommendations for everything we did, and knew all the...

We stayed at the guest house for only one night,but were quite happy about that afterwards. The house itself is nice with a pool area and a nice lounge and bar. Also the staff is very nice and helpful. Sadly, we were given room no.1, which had only a small window looking out onto the backyard wall, which didn't close....

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. We are sorry it turned out like it did. Room 1 is one of the 3 standard rooms.

Well positioned for the Waterfront, Mouille Point, and promenade walk. We saw whales on our first morning!! Handy for restaurants and shops at Sea Point. rooms well appointed. Outside at the front with small pool and bar perfect for relaxing after a long hot day with a glass of wine and toes in a nice cold pool.

Head South Hotel is a charming hotel in Cape Town. The owner is very knowledgeable, and will get you going in the right direction with a full list of personal recommendations. The hotel itself isn't extremely centrally located, and you'll have to drive/take a cab to downtown, but there are some good restaurants and coffee shops within a 15 minute...
