We were only at the Inn for one night, but found it to be a wonderful stay. It would have been great to stay longer. We had a very warm greeting and orientation to the property and our room, which was very comfortable. Great use of African/South African decorating touches throughout. We particularly appreciated that they allowed us to use... More

This place is conveniently located between Signal Hill, Table Mountain, and the waterfront area. The staff was very very friendly and more than happy to help plan your days if you would like. The breakfast was great. We were out most of the day so we did not have lunch or dinner there.

This is why I prefer boutique hotels - because even in the most luxurious of the big hotels - there isn't the staff/guest ratio to get service like this. The great service started weeks before we arrived with the ever so helpful Steffi getting us reservations at La Colombe - which can be booked up months in advance. Once we... More
