The guesthouse is very conveniently located in Seapoint, a lovely neighbourhood close to the Waterfront and easy to get to. We appreciated the atmosphere, the help for dinner reservations and all the...

Always a very warm welcome at the Cape Standard. Staff very helpful, ready to make the reservation you need. Excellent breakfast and rooms simple, clean, practical. Some noise in the morning for the moment. Due to construction across the street.

But why would a new person choose to stay there? 1. Location: Situated just on the edge of Cape Town central it is near to the coast, near to the...

This lovely guest house has a very tranquil atmosphere. Our nice room had a little terrace with direct access to the secluded pleasant pool area. You don't feel like you are in the middle of vibrant Cape Town, but you are.

What a pretty, clean, cosy hotel and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Birthday cakes and wine as a surprise on my birthday and otherwise very healthy breakfasts with smoothies etc. Nice room and quiet pool area. For anyone wanting to stay in a small, cosy, peaceful hotel this is the place to go.
