We stayed here twice - at the beginning and end of our 3 week South Africa experience. Very pleased in every way - staff, facilities, comfort, cleanliness. Good walking access to Waterfront and Cape Town Centre. I wholeheartedly recommend Oxford House

Apart from being the best apartment we stayed in in South Africa the staff get our top prize for being the most helpful of anywhere we stayed at!If we ever go back to Cape Town we would not stay anywhere else. Our South African friends were most impressed with the place.

If you are looking for a functional room to rest and refresh, then it does the job.Our room was on the first floor, with no balcony, I thought there was a common area which we could atleast sit at to get some fresh air, this was not possible, there isn't a common area nor a pool.

Ideal location, value for money, friendly, helpful staff. Toaster, microwave, utensils etc meant i could have breakfast etc in the large room. Shops, restaurants within easy walking distance. Taxis around the corner and V & A waterfront not too far a walk from the place. Would stay there again.

Very convenient overnight stay in cape town - walking distance to the stadium, CBD, V&A waterfront, and Sea Point. Room was clean & pleasantly decorated, but bed lined definitely needs an upgrade. No pool or common areas (pics on the site show the neighbouring hotels pool).
