As a former UCT student, the "Devonshire House" was the perfect location for my one week of vacation to meet friends in town and on campus, go running with my beloved running club and hiking in the “Table Mountain National Park”.

Enjoyed the stay in an "old" traditional double storey house in Rondebosch. Our room was clean, comfortable but small. The manager and staff helpful, friendly and a lovely breakfast was included. It is conveniently situated and access to the highway was quick.

Hi Angeline, Thank you so much for reviewing Devonshire House. I know what a busy lady you are and appreciate the effort to do the review. It was good getting to know you and your lovely daughter. I trust she has settled well in Cape Town. We look forward to your next visit.

Friendly, quiet and central location for Cape Town and surrounds. Helen and Tony went out of their way to help with all sorts of things such as local advice (location of police station!) and even use of computer.

Recently up at UCT for the annual Summer School, opted to stay here because of the immediate proximity to campus, but got so much more. Helen and Tony's warm and informal hospitality put me right at ease from the start, and made me feel I was among friends. Everything about the experience was ideal -- secluded leafy location, quiet comfortable...

Visiting family and friends in Cape Town for a few days, I was looking for a conveniently located and comfortable place to stay, ideally with a swimming pool. Location: tick. Aside from being almost within walking distance of my various destinations, it is convenient to shops, restaurants, the freeways, the city and is almost on the University campus. A huge...

I stayed for one night as I was visiting University of Cape Town. My room was most comfortable with a lovely view of the mountain. It was quiet at night too. Great breakfast. I will certainly stay again
