the room is so small that there is no place for your suitecase. The staff is very helpfull and nice. The location is very good. The breakfast was very poor. Every day different (1 croissant + 1 roll one day, 2 croissants the other day and that for 2 persons!!). Good secure parking behind the building.

Cape Town respite You will have to look hard to find a better home-away-from-home in Cape Town than this spot: 17 On Loader Guest House. I have stayed in Green Point, Bantry Bay and elsewhere in the ‘Mother city’ – but this is my top choice for value and proximity to hot spots. Owner Derek [] and manager Ben made...

Ben and his staff were very helpful; they made every effort to answer my questions, make bookings and organize taxis when requested. Breakfast was delicious, with a selection of continental options, and could be taken in your room, in the dining area or on the rooftop terrace. The decor of the house was tasteful. Security was good, which I felt...

There is less care and...

After having stayed in quite some hotels in Johannesburg and Cape Town I found a perfect place to retreat and enjoy the beauty of Cape Town. The position is beautiful, rooms are lovely and the breakfast is wonderful. Will come back again soon

I think the guesthouse as a whole is beautiful. The position is perfect, loved that secure parking is provided, the bedrooms are beautifully decorated, the bed is better than mine at home and the kitchen facilities are perfect. I did not use the roof terrace this time, but will certainly do so in warmer weather. I have two suggestions: the...
