Although neighbourhood, terrace (with great views) and nice common rooms might suggest a good and lively atmosphere, the place is actually kind of dead.
Location. Good value for money. Friendly staff. Adequate breakfast.
The close proximity to tourist attractions and the general setup of the establishment. It is situated in such a quaint neighbourhood.
Neat and clean
Walls were too thin!You could hear from other rooms.
Delice!!!!She was wonderful!
only issue was finding parking. its very limited.
everything was exactly how it was described on the box- hassle free and very pleasant, in a great location but far enough to still feel relaxed on holiday.
I would not say we did not like anything. Just wanted to set expectations. This place is not the Ritz but is a small friendly well presented guest house that is great value in great location if you like De Waterkant area. (which we do).
Big, clean and well equipped bedroom. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Massive bath and separate shower. Roof top terrace for Breakfast has great views.
No Air conditioning. Had fans, but was still a little hot
Super helpful staff.
I wish they had shampoo. Be careful for early or late check in, it will cost additional R150. Somehow Wifi Internet in my room went extremely slow for the latter half of my stay.
My room itself was simple but neat and tidy. The point I liked was the big kitchen and common space with nice sofa. Hair drier in the closet was helpful too
Bed was too hard and the noise from the breakfast room above when they were setting up in the morning.
Safe to walk around at night, some good local restaurants and an excellent Spar! Management was very accomodating. Value for money it was cheaper than the back packers private room and shower! Cape Town1 caroline
- breakfast was simple which is fine for a few days but as I was there a week, I got a little bored (there are a few good breakfast places nearby so not really a problem) - the B&B is at the top of a hill (not a problem for me but something to keep in mind for others with limited mobility)
- good location (close to shops, cafes and transport) - rooms are comfortable and a good size
No air conditioning Stairs that can be a problem for people with walking difficulty
Very friendly team Location
I had to go through lots of uncomfortable stairs inside the lodge to reach my room. The room furnature and decorations was very old.
The location was good surrounded with few bars and close to the Main Street . just 25 min walk to waterfront.
Great location, very central, great vibe. Very friendly and helpful staff.
The bed could need an update at least in room 6. It would be nice if it also could be a cleaning up on the balcony to get rid of what birds left behind.
The location can´t be better. Grant as host are really serviceminded and you feel you are welcome. Good assistans when it comes to arrange tours or other activities connected to the stay in CT.
I liked everything.
Convenience and price.
Location, centrally locaties within cape town. Nice Area with bars en restaurants within walking distance
almost everything: the breakfast was very very poor, the room was to small and without privacy, in front of the main door, the house is non funcionaly.
No bath soaps. No DSTV. Your breakfast did not have eggs.
Friendly Staff members, especially the receptionist (Chido i believe its her name). She's very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was very poor (despite the restaurant being such nice location upstairs) The receptionist, Mr. Grumpy Grant was generally in a bad mood
Great location Nice rooms Nice apartment facilities and balcony
(i) I was allocated initially in one room without balcony and no views and located in the same reception espace. Nobody requested me if i was confortable with that. I had to request a better room. Finnaly I got it. But it was like i was begging a big favour. (ii) I got a room out of the main building and everytime i did need something from reception or breakfast you have to come out and reach the main building. (iii) the breakfast was the standard continental breakfst . They could improve adding some local ingredient from southafrica
what i liked most was: (i) the wifi was working in the entire building;(ii) the logistic information they gave me in the reception;(iii) the place is couzy and 10 minutes walk to the Cape Town International Convention Centre;(iv) terrasse to have breakfast
Shower was either very hot of very cold !
Fantastic location and a lovely character place to stay - fab view of table mountain :)
Sometimes the floors in the bathroom was not washed, and reception was friendly and helpful bar the odd occasion when a mature and less motivated person was on duty.
Very good position, quaint furnishings, excellent breakfast and beautiful views from balcony and veranda. Communal microwave, kettle and hotplates, dining table and common room. I certainly will come again.
