We enjoyed our stay however had issues with a leaking fridge. Room is good size but attention to detail is lacking overall. Our coffee was not replaced so we went without on the second morning. Pleasant stay, close to waterfront and city bowl. A good option if you are out all day. No other facilities.

Highly recommended...three stays in three years...a real Cape Town gem...our go-to place for easy access to the V&A Waterfront access (on foot) and access...perfect location...our regular South Africa "first stop and last stop" (arriving and departing via Cape Town International)...we'll be back (again, and again). Many thanks to Jeanine and the entire Oxford House crew!

Once more, we were very happy with our stay at Oxford House. It has become one of our two favourite guest houses in Cape Town. We will certainly be back. Big rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Ideal Location.

We chose this hotel based on location and price and found it to be good value for money and very convenient for everywhere we wished to visit. Only a few minutes walk to some good bars and restaurants and only ten minutes walk to the V&A Waterfront. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and...

Spacious accommodation with outside seating area, although the table was warped from being exposed to the elements. The decor was interesting and there appeared to be everything one would require for self-catering including a coffee machine. The shower was large but had a big drawback as there was absolutely nowhere to place toiletries. Getting out of the shower was a...

Good location, and Jeanine (the manager/owner?) was very helpful with directions and suggestions. Our 1st floor room didn't have a view, but there was a wooden terrace outside which was perfect for sipping some wine after a busy day. There is a kitchenette (no stove./oven) which was ok, but it would've been nice if there was a dish drainer and...

The location was very good - close to many amenities. The room was nice and bigger than normal. Lots of noise outside due to new buildings being worked on. Biggest problem is the website claims parking on the premises, however one has to park in the street - so no safe parking available.

Dear N7811EJmartinr, Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We enjoy hearing that our location was suitable for you and yes, we do have some great restaurants and shops close by. The maintenance and building currently in the area is noticeable but thankfully they start later in the morning and finish quit early. Due to space in the area...

Great place to stay regards location. The rooms could do with some maintenance but were clean. Service from staff was very good. Mini kitchen had everything that was required for a breakfast but you would struggle for larger meals.

Rooms are large, modern and clean; bed is large and very comfortable. Nice and helpful staff. Close (walkingdistance) to Waterfront. Supermarket and a range of restaurants are really nearby. The accommodation offers value for money.
