Spring Hill, Florida
Reviewed 9 January 2016

Everything about our stay was perfect. The staff, the room, the breakfast, the pool and the location were all wonderful. We will definitely stay there again. Christian, Joshua, Donald and Nicole all did a great job during our stay. Peter, the owner, runs a very nice hotel.

Me and my husband spent almost 2 weeks at this small (only 8 rooms) 4 star hotel in "trendy" Green Point, and absolutely loved it! The main purpose with this vacation was to play golf and enjoy the fantastic restaurants in Cape Town and the surrounding wine districts. Location is perfect on a nice and quiet street within walking distance...

We stayed 5 nights and were overall happy. The hotel is modern, the breakfast great, the rooms stylish. The staff is also very friendly in general. Unfortunately, the person attending us most was not really cordial - something we kind of got used during our 3.5 weeks holiday. People usually were so incredibly friendly and helpful. So yes a nice...

I would definitely recommend this hotel to tourists. It's located just off the main road and is walking distance from the V&A waterfront. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious- a lot better than what we expected! the bathrooms were spotless and large. We stayed in a couple of other places in and around cape town during our holiday, but...

Good position. Comfortable clean rooms. Thin walls between rooms. I could hear the snoring in the neighboring room. Service at times was a bit slow. I used the hotel for for a business trip. Breakfast is only served from 7:30, so you will be lucky to finish by 8:00. The hotel is not flexible on the start time of breakfast....

Very Pleasant and helpful staff, looked after us extremely well, wouldn't hesitate to go back. Within walking distance to V &A by day but taxi at night. But that applies to most places in Cape Town at night.

The staff (Donald, Christian, Megan and Nicol) made our stay one of a kind. Excellent way to treat their guests and to make you feel at home. Cozy small hotel with...guess what only 8 rooms:-).
