We stayed here in December 2010 as part of our honeymoon. We found out about 2Inn1 through tripadvisor. We were really impressed with everything about this place. We arrived late at night and the night porter kindly brought us a drink of our choice and some nibbles. The room was so lovely and modern. Great to have an ipod docking... More

Went on a short trip from London for a wedding so had 3 nights there. What a great find - nothing too much trouble for the team and great atmosphere and location.

We stayed here for four nights at the end of our tour of South Africa. Yes, it certainly lived up to it's reputation. Steffi met us the door and guided us to drinks on the terrace, whilst our luggage was delivered to our rooms. Bliss. The decor of the rooms were lovely, but it's the attention to detail that makes...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our SA holiday. We booked the 2Inn1 based on reviews from TripAdvisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were treated like guests staying at a friends house rather than just another anonymous hotel client. Every single member of staff we came across was absolutely delightful and everyone went out of... More
