Thanks to Anne for being the perfect host. A cup of coffee on arrival, and sandwiches prepared for me on my last day when I had to leave before breakfast for an early meeting. An exceptional restoration of one of Cape Town's historic buildings, with a charm and taste that takes you by surprise. Very close to the museum district,...

We spent 2 nights at Six on Scott. Just off Buitenkant Street makes it an excellent location for some of central Cape Town's attractions such as the Fugard Theatre, District Six Museum and the Jewish and Holocaust Museum. And very close to the Garden shopping centre. Despite that, it was a very quiet location. Clean and simple, the room didn't...
