Fantastic hotel. Really friendly and incredibly helpful staff. Comfortable rooms with every detail considered. Great location, a short walk to restaurants and short drives to all the main attractions. Love the honesty bar!

I recently had two separate stays at Derwent House, and would highly recommend. I appreciated the security guard outside the front at all times, and great location, within a short (safe) walk to many restaurants and very convenient to the major Cape Town attractions, all...More

From the first contact with the hotel whilst booking, to the moment we left, there was not a single reason for us to suggest the Derwent House’s rating was not fully justified. This is an outstanding hotel; there is no aspect that we could fault....More

On arrival at Derwent House we found a bottle of fizz, a 'congratulations' banner, balloons AND confetti in our room, to celebrate the first stop on our honeymoon. And this says it all really - the staff here are so incredibly thoughtful. It was chilly...More

About
Description
In a city renowned for hospitality, Derwent House stands out as one of Cape Town's leading boutique guesthouses. Located in the heart of the vibrant Tamboerskloof/Gardens neighbourhood, this small hotel More combines historic charm, contemporary Afro-chic style and all mod-cons for a uniquely Capetonian blend of ambience, warmth, and comfort. Our wonderful team completes the picture -- we go the extra mile for you and our guests leave as friends. We love colour and celebrate African design - you'll find it everywhere. But when it comes to the basics - like breakfast, bedding, showers, climate control, Wi-fi or news from home - we don't compromise so you don't have to. At Derwent House, you're steps away from the hustle and buzz of Kloof Street, with its collection of superb restaurants, bars and trendy boutiques--and just a few further to the nightlife hub of Bree and Long Streets. Yet just a short car journey from the Table Mountain cable car, the beaches of Clifton or Camp's Bay, and the V&A Waterfront. There's nowhere more central -- but come and see for yourself. We're waiting for you! Less

No bed bugs -- promise . . . They are not an issue in South Africa in general.
