    The location is great, a short walk to restaurants in one direction and the oceanfront in another, on a pleasant street. The rear courtyard is a nice, tranquil spot.

    The staff were exceptionally friendly and made us feel so welcome! It's walking distance to various shops as well as sea point promenade. We really enjoyed the breakfast every morning, very casual/relaxed. We weren't disappointed at all 👍🏼
