A very kind friendly staff and a lovely owner who has become a friend. She has just started up and deserves all the luck in the world. Do hope people reading this will make the effort and go and see what I found there !!

Positioned where it is with a couple of good restaurants nearby and not far from the beachfront at Seapoint, we enjoyed our stay. Management and staff were attentive.

-No restaurant services given. You always have to eat out.
-Friendliness of the staff -Free access around the clock. Everyone given their own keys into the compound

Lack of basic appliances like a small fridge and a microwave oven in the rooms; rediculously cheap, small and malfunctioning TV sets.
Very warm owner/hostess and staff; clean and homely atmosphere close to most tourist attractions.

Would not recommend for a lady by herself to stay on the third floor. Carrying luggage up and down the sometimes steep steps can be cumbersome.
Staff were friendly. Room clean and bed comfortable.

Nice staff and good breakfast

Friendly and warm staff. Welda (the new owner) has made us feel like we were in a home away from home and is sure to be very successful with the cape nelson . We got the bigger room which was fully equipped and nicely furnished. Really tasty breakfast, just perfect to start your day. Housekeeping kept our room looking and smelling squeaky clean. It's quiet and quaint, affordable luxury and comfort at its best!

The room was spacious, had everything I needed (except a pair of scissors), the staff were so friendly and helpful.
October 23, 2014
Excellent value for money. All that I needed and more

Room was a bit small (adequate for price though) Air conditioner struggled a bit On-street parking might be a problem, but I found easy parking each time I parked No serious draw-backs
Ticks all the boxes - an affordable B&B near all amenities and close to the V&A and the city. Friendly, helpful and nice breakfast. Would consider booking it again.

No parking behind locked gates
Location & great breakfasts Supreme hospiality

Lack of tablet bathing soap. I am not a fun of liquid soap. Lack of a big sign board on the road to guide the visitor where to turn in.
I enjoyed the breakfast and the business sense of the proprietor.

very loud when people move around at 3 a.m.
Easy to get around from here, friendly, helpful staff

We had requested to have breakfast after ten since we were preparing for our 12 am meeting, but at 10am on the dot they declared the kitchen closed. We were the only guests. On consulting with Aubrey who apparently hadn't communicated our request to the kitchen lady he denied ever receiving such a request. We had also asked for extra towels but no towels were delivered. I have liked staying in B&Bs for their warmth but I will stick to hotels from now on.
The location was suitable for our meetings.

I did not like the fact that when I arrived they did not have any staff available to check me in. All they had was a telephone number which you had to dial upon arrival. No one answered the phone when I arrived forcing me to make alternative arrangements for accomodation - absolute terrible service.
Nothing, as I was not given the chance to stay.

Room and bathroom quite small.
Safe place, close to V & A Waterfront, Table Mountain, and other scenic tours. Staff very nice and helpful
May 21, 2014
Too basic for a 4 graded establishment. Did not meet expectations
May 6, 2014
The room was absolutely TINY. I am a small girl and even I found moving around the room difficult. The dining area and kitchen are directly outside the bedrooms so from just after 6am it was a noisy environment.
The cleanliness and friendliness of our host, Aubrey

Breakfast was very limited and staff not really qualified.
The location, walking distance from Sea Point park and not too far from water front and the city center, also some good restaurants very close by !
May 3, 2014
When we arrived at the arranged and confirmed time, it was locked with no response from the doorbell and for more than an hour the phone was not answered. We were on the point of looking for another place to stay, when we got through to them. The delay caused us to be late for our appointment and we had no time to freshen up. Totally unacceptable!!
Nothing really. There is no interior decorating. The room was small and noisy, not soundproof and opened directly into the dining room. It was a good bed though. Not enough light in the room and impossible to put make-up on in the poor light.

The room was a little bit small, the bathroom especially. If you don't make sure to shut the doors in just the right order (there are two) you run the risk of hurting yourself. Also we noticed that it was always a bit on the humid side in the room, but it really wasn't a bother and the AC unit at night is very helpful for that. It would have been nicer to have full access to the kitchen in order to do more self-catering, but the staff lock it up while away and as it ended up working out we weren't really in the room most days long enough to warrant that as a necessity.
Just down the road you can find a number of places to eat and a Woolworths. Walk a little further and you'll reach the beach, which has lots of playgrounds and lawn and (of course) the ocean and convenient bus stops for Cape Town's tourism buses (which are also highly recommendable). The service here was friendly and polite, and they were kind enough to let us use their Honesty Bar fridge to store food throughout the week. We were also able to arrange for an airport shuttle back for the morning, there's a small tv in the room (limited channels, but better than nothing by far) and the internet has been very serviceable for web browsing. Breakfast was also very good, albeit the same options every day. The bed was good as well and we had a nice view of the patio area. The area was very safe and well-lit; we were just two girls and walked back and forth from our friends' hotel multiple evenings with no problem.

Aubrey was an excellent host, the room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. We had a very nice breakfast served in the courtyard. Thank you very much for a great experience.
