I stayed three nights at Derwent House. The staff was extremely professional and helpful. They had many recommendations for restaurants, activities, and other information on Cape Town. They also helped to arrange a customised private wine tour that was a highlight of the trip.

The Derwent House has a bedroom - wall but no door, but fine for us. Our 20 year old daughter slept on the sofa sleeper we pulled out. Reasonably priced, super location, great staff.

Hi Mandelbee, As described above . . . no specific security personnel, because it is just not warranted, but a general security awareness. Hope that helps!
