This is a real jewel. I loved the decor, breakfast was made to order, everyone was very helpful and friendly. It is up on the hill a little ways, but is easy to get to and has great access to Table Mountain. I hope I can return to Cape Town some day and I will stay here if I do....

I feel it would be beneficial if the guests had Wi-Fi access. Other wise the hotel was awesome. The staff were very helpful and always went above and beyond to keep us happy. Thank you for everything!
