This beautiful 100 year old house is perfectly restored. We stayed in a large comfortable room with a huge bed. The bathroom is perfect. The whole atmosphere of the house is welcoming and comfortable. Corinne and Jean Francoise made us feel like family. It was our anniversary and we were spoilt with a lovely bottle of wine. I have stayed...

This is a must place to stay. Away from the maddening crowds and easy reach to centre. Owners are a pleasure to be with and run a superb guest house. More than a guest house, a boutique lodge. Nothing is too much trouble. Run by delightful French couple. Brilliant breakfast. Bon chance.

Stayed for just one night, New Year's Eve. Fantastic place, great atmosphere in a colonial style setting. Very secluded, an oasis of tranquil. Corinne and her husband were wonderful hosts, very open, helpful and accommodating. We'll be back for sure.

Stayed at the guest house on two occasions over a period of two weeks. Both times the service was friendly and helpful.

Reviewed 24 January 2015 via mobile

Where to start? Is it the exquisitely renovated Victorian mansion? The self-service bar? Our lavish 50 m2 suite with beautiful bathroom? The fantastic garden? The lovely terrace breakfast? Or Corinne, the best hostess you've ever met? One thing we know for certain: we will never stay elsewhere in Cape Town again. Go there!
