Positive Reviews

A scenic location in suburban Cape Town

The great thing about this accommodation for guests is that it is in a quiet and suburban spot, yet not far from all the action of downtown Cape Town. They love the peace, quiet and greenery of the Gardens neighbourhood, but also being able to stroll out to vibrant Kloof Street to dine in good quality restaurants. Reviewers were pleased to be within easy reach of the city centre by car or bus. Moreover, Table Mountain is only a short drive away.

Kind and helpful hosts

The charming owners will do all they can to help you feel at home, according to previous guests. They have a lovely manner and will help you plan your trips or give advice as to where to go and what to see.

Good value accommodation

Guests are pretty content with what they get for their money. You can stay in a nice and quiet property that feels safe and comfy. Moreover, guests say it is kept spotlessly clean. You can also enjoy a delicious and extensive breakfast on the large terrace, surrounded by greenery and visiting squirrels and with great views of Table Mountain.

Negative Reviews

No on-site parking

One significant drawback noted by guests is the lack of on-site parking. You have to leave your vehicle on the street, which made some motorists feel a little uneasy.

Obstacles to sleep

Light sleepers in certain rooms mentioned that the blinds failed to block out sunlight effectively, causing them a nuisance as they tried to sleep.
