    We found this Guest House very good and can only really fault it on having only street parking, but this appears to be normal in Cape Town ! The breakfast food range was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly.

    Very cosy interior and friendly atmosphere. A good "home away from home". Rich breakfast. Helpful staff when we needed restaurants or taxis booked. The pool, however, was nice to look at, but pretty useless - far to small and ice cold.
