Lovely hotel with amazing staff. They really couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Great wifi in the public places. Only downside is they are building a block of flats overlooking the pool. But TBH there is no where in Sea Point or Green Point that isn't!

We were highly impressed by Villa Zest even before arriving. Tracey the owner helped us with questions about transport and restaurants and provided the warmest of welcomes. Our room on the swimming pool level was beautifully laid out with a small but pleasant bathroom. With only a few guest rooms we enjoyed the tranquility (even though there was building work...

We are staying 5 days here while we explore Cape Town. Aside from a great location, proximity to great restaurants, the Whart and other attractions, the best thing about this place is the staff!! It is obvious Ms. T Steenkamp sets the tone and culture of this place - from the front staff to the housekeeping staff - everyone is...

Used Villa Zest as a base for a work trip. Location very convenient for the Waterfront. Friendly staff, clean rooms of a good size and with a comfortable bed. Lovely breakfast also. Couldn't have asked for better for the price.

What a find! This hotel is just perfect. The quirky decor is fantastic, the staff can't do enough for you, the breakfast is good and the location is close to everything. Our room (Studio 54) was absolutely gorgeous - very spacious and airy with a huge super comfy bed, stunning shower and fantastic decor. When we came back to the...

Stayed for a few nights in this hotel and we enjoyed our stay. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Breakfast starts at 730am but when we told them we were leaving at 7am for two days due to touring, they went ahead and accommodated our request and we had the full breakfast at 6am. Also, on the day of...

My girlfriend and I somehow settled on this cool, little movie themed, retro hotel in Cape Town. If you kind of want to gauge the vibe of Cape Town staying at a place like this on your first day gives you a feel for the city. We stayed in the 'Jackie Brown' room. So random. Only gripe was it was...

I had a one night stopover in Cape Town before catching a flight so I chose to stay at Villa Zest as it looked like it had character and I love trying out new hotels every time I'm in the city. The staff are very friendly and willing to help with anything as soon as you arrive. I was shown...

I booked this hotel while I travelling around South Africa, to be a base for our last night before travelling to the airport. It was conveniently located about less than half an hour's drive from the airport and 15 minutes walk from the V&A waterfront. The room we had (Bullet) was really comfortable (although I agree fairly small) and the...
