From the outset, Cape Standard seemed promising - nice staff, clean, sleek, modern and centrally located. However, after 4 nights, it was made clear that it is not a 4 star hotel and not one which I would recommend to anyone wishing to feel like they are truly on vacation. First and most importantly, there is MAJOR construction going on...

Dear Stephanie We sincerely regret that you did not enjoy your stay at the Cape Standard. We also regret that you did not bring to our attention the lack of amenities, as well as your other concerns, during your stay with us. The ‘extra’ charge levied at check out was not for breakfast but due to the fact that, as...

I would 100% recommend a stay at Cape Standard. The setting, design, ambiance & facilities are top class. The pool is absolute perfect for relaxing & swimming. Rooms are spacious & have everything that you need. Breakfast is gorgeous & the service impeccable. The location in Sea Point is fantastic as really easy to get to all the local bars,...

We stayed at the Cape Standard for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our brief time there. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, and there was parking right out front for our rental car. Though it was on the chilly side while we were there so we couldn't enjoy the outdoor spaces as much as we otherwise would have, there...

Awesome funky place, good breakfast, friendly staff! Nice ambience in the general lounge area and breakfast around the pool minus the wind is great. Greenpoint is ideal location to walk around to grab a meal !

A beautiful little guest house, where you just feel like home from the moment you check in and just a 10 min walk away from where the action is. A warm and friendly team assists you almost at any time for planning sightseeing trips, restaurant reservations etc. David & his team Margot, Jonathan and Paddington in the morning are real...

We recently went to Capetown and stayed at a small hotel called Cape Standard. I can not say enough good things about this place. The place itself was charming, beautiful and convenient but what really made it so great was the staff. We checked in and Jonathan was ready to make everything happen. He helped us figure out what hikes...

We stayed at the Cape Standard between 23rd - 27th Oct and had a wonderful time. Everything was spot on, nice big rooms, great shower and very comfortable bed (dreamy). We travelled in a group of 6 and a 6 month baby, and they could not do enough to help us! Which bring me to the best thing about the...

This is an amaizing hotell. The staff is friendly and helpful beyond all. If you need help with bookings or need to cancel they are there always. The rooms are clean and nice, the outdoor area with a pool is perfect for breakfast or tanning. Love this place.

Really helpful staff ( Margot/ Jonathan and Paddington) and a lovely breakfast each morning. Location is great for accessing Camps Bay/ Sea Point/ Cape Town. Probably easiest to take taxi ( not expensive) and can be organised via hotel. Building work is currently being undertaken opposite and likely to be a while. Try to get a room that overlooks pool...
