I've spent with my family wonderful 6 days at that fantastic guesthouse. The staff was helpful in any case (reservation for diner, driver etc.). The rooms were clean and nice. To sit outside for breakfast was a dream. We would recommend it to everyone staying at Cape Town. Thanks a lot to Jonathan, Margot, Paddington and the rest of the...

Wonderful decoration, perfect location for a walk to Waterfront and Hop-on Hop-off bus. Rooms are calm and in nice colours. Garden and pool just enough even if it a small yard. Clean and so nice and helpful personnell.

Would highly recommend this hotel to any travelers passing by Cape Town - great standard throughout. Staff was extremely helpful as well. If of interest, we can highly recommend the tour guides and drivers they work with. They helped us arranged a peninsula tour and a wine tour, which both were great.

The team there bends over backwards to meet your every need, and we literally felt like family with each by the time we left. David has done a tremendous job with customer service. The rooms are...

The hotel is very well decorated and our room was very comfortable and modern with good air conditioning and a ceiling fan. Breakfast was simple but delicious. The pool area was also...

Always a very warm welcome at the Cape Standard. Staff very helpful, ready to make the reservation you need. Excellent breakfast and rooms simple, clean, practical. Some noise in the morning for the moment. Due to construction across the street.
