Cape Standard is a great find. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were offered great advice on where to go/where to eat and generally given a feel for Cape Town. The hotel arranged two guided trips for us and the quality of the trip/the car and the driver was first class. The rooms at...

Very friendly and helpful people here! The location may be a bit too far from the Waterfront by foot, but taxi takes only 50 rand or so. The breakfast was excellent with juices and the special health drinks. The area was quiet and safe. At least some of the villas have their own entrance straight from the street, which was...

Love the cute/chic decor and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Our stay included a delicious breakfast, which was a great start to the day. Walking distance to plenty of shops, restaurants and the VA Waterfront.

We stayed for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of this small hotel in a very convenient location for exploring CP. All the staff were very efficient and attentive but Paddington should get a special mention for his efforts, Justin had just started but is learning fast under Paddingtons wing. We enjoyed sitting outside for breakfast and looked forward...

A brilliant place for short or longer stay in Cape Town. A real boutique hotel; comfort, style, friendly, personal, relaxed. The place felt serene in the busy city of CT. Beautiful room and delicious breakfast. Great price vs quality balance. Will definately come back and recommend to friends/family!

Cape Standard have everything right – and then some. For sure there’s an abundance of great guest houses throughout Cape Town. But none of them have Margo, Jonathan or the amazing Paddington – who not only take a personal interest in every guest and are full of good advice but have an attention to detail that defies belief. In addition,...

I've spent with my family wonderful 6 days at that fantastic guesthouse. The staff was helpful in any case (reservation for diner, driver etc.). The rooms were clean and nice. To sit outside for breakfast was a dream. We would recommend it to everyone staying at Cape Town. Thanks a lot to Jonathan, Margot, Paddington and the rest of the...

Wonderful decoration, perfect location for a walk to Waterfront and Hop-on Hop-off bus. Rooms are calm and in nice colours. Garden and pool just enough even if it a small yard. Clean and so nice and helpful personnell.

Would highly recommend this hotel to any travelers passing by Cape Town - great standard throughout. Staff was extremely helpful as well. If of interest, we can highly recommend the tour guides and drivers they work with. They helped us arranged a peninsula tour and a wine tour, which both were great.
