Terrific boutique lodging in Gardens area

This small lodging is perfectly situated in Gardens district of Cape Town. Rooms are nice with good wifi and selection of TV channels. Also equipped with kitchenette. Best of all is owner Stephan who is wonderfu to deal with. He's super prompt with email queries. And will happily provide recommendations re where to eat and what to see and do.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely friendly place to stay.

Pros: Lovely quiet place to stay. It felt like you were alone on the property which made it hugely relaxing. Staff/owner were very friendly and we could always find someone to help us. We stayed in the bay suite with our 20 month old and it really suited us.

Cons: Nothing. It was great and really suited us. It might not suit you if you wanted to be in the centre of the nightlife.

Location: It was situated in a nice quiet neighbourhood close to pretty much everything. It's really easy to drive around Cape Town and cheap to park.

5/5 Excellent

You might not want to leave the hotel

The Gardens neighborhood/district is easily the most beautiful place to stay in Cape Town. If you are fit, it's feasible to walk to/from Kloof Street for fine dining. If you're really fit and have plenty of time, you can start your hike to Table Mountain from the hotel as well. The owners and staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The mattress was very comfortable and the window treatments provided almost blackout conditions so we enjoyed very sound sleep during our stay. Parking was also right in front of the hotel.

Pros: Make time to enjoy the garden patio and the hammock, especially after dark. The setting is so tranquil and serene and feels otherworldly.

Location: Kloof Street, Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Beach
