Travellers' Choice
Zest Boutique Hotel, located in Green Point, right in the middle of Cape Town and close to most attractions, is a vibey and interesting boutique hotel, where trend setters and opinion makers feel comfortable. Internally, the décor is simply remarkable, impressively taking inspiration from the care-free days of the 70’s and catapulting it into the modern world creating a wonderful combination of vibrant and contemporary colour, light and creativity. There are fourteen double guest rooms; each one designed to maximise space and light. All rooms have an impressive range of facilities including king size bed, ensuite bathroom, a laptop safe, plasma TV, free Wi-fi, air conditioning, designer teas and pod coffee machines, and locally made biodegradable bathroom amenities. Included in the services offered are a 24-hour concierge, a day room, breakfast served until 11am every day, an all-day dining menu, in-house laundry, a bar, and Spa Treatments, either in the comfort of your room, or at the Zest Spa treatment room in its sister hotel just 3 minutes’ walk away. Zest Boutique Hotel is part of The Living Journey Collection and beautifully compliments The Tree House Boutique Hotel in Cape Town, Chapter House Boutique Hotel in Franschhoek, One Marine Drive Boutique Hotel in Hermanus and The River Manor Boutique Hotel in Stellenbosch.

The Hotel is clean, well positioned, well laid out and is comfortable. The service is very good and the breakfast was also good. Effort was evident in the small touches, masks and sanitiser, fresh green apples, etc. would definitely recommend this stay!

The hotel staff was gracious, respectable, hard-working. Their Covid precautions were A plus and provided me with a covid test on my return trip to the USA. The hotel was agile and adaptable to my needs with transportation services Ishmel shuttle driver offered advice and help when my phone received a virus from using the airport wifi and helped resolve the issue. The food was excellent and would return for a nice relaxing vacation in the future within walking distance to the shops and waterfront.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Zest Boutique Hotel before returning to the US. The team does a great job, and appreciate being singled out. In these times remaining flexible and solution focused is really what it is all about, and if=t is wonderful when that is recognised. I will share your comments with Ismail. His tours and transport service is a great addition to the hotel, and he is very knowledgeable and helpful. I notice that you may return on holiday which would be great and we would love to see you again. Please do stay in touch and let us know what we can do to help, either at Zest again, or indeed at another one of The Living Journey Collection in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Hermanus. Warm regards and many thanks Lorraine

Dear Birgit Many thanks for your review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Zest Boutique Hotel. It was great to be part of your wonderful three days in Cape Town. We get a lot of great feedback about our location, so close to everything in Cape Town but just tucked away to ensure some peace and quiet. The team are delighted with the feedback, they love to get mentioned in reviews and to have their great and friendly service appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again either at Zest Boutique Hotel, or perhaps in one of the other boutique hotels belonging to The Living Journey Collection in Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Hermanus. Warm regards and we hope to see you again soon. Lorraine
