Disappointing

Location
4
Definitely not a premier room as booked and charged for. The view from this premier room was on one side a 2 meter brick wall built half a meter from the window with an array of flower pots containing artificial flowers. The second window looked into the store room. Very dark and gloomy. There was no latch on the bathroom door. No fridge either

Despite its flaws, I extended my stay

Central location, attentive staff, great breakfast
8
The Good: -the location: on a quiet road between two fun streets in a great neighbourhood which offers everything you need in terms of restos, coffee spots, bars, even a good club. If you're walking, it's a fairly safe area, close enough so you can reach Long St. by foot, and there are cheap cabs everywhere. -outstanding breakfast -the staff/ownership are very friendly and helpful. Went out of their way to accommodate. -the grounds are lovely. You don't expect this much space in a downtown B+B, but there are quiet nooks everywhere, including the secluded deck w/pool. The pool is quite a bit smaller than it seems in the picture (think large jacuzzi), and the view from the deck pictured in the ad doesn't quite reflect the current reality as you can't see town through the roof of the adjacent buildings, but it's lovely all the same. -room size varies, but my first room (#2) was massive The Not So Good: -the rooms feel as though you're staying at a friend's place. A tidy friend, but one who should replace his shabby carpets. It's not a 4* well appointed B&B; anyone expecting the 'little luxuries' will be disappointed. -the noises: this was the most serious problem, at least in Room 2 and I would presume Room 1. I could hear the pipes roaring whenever they took a shower, and every time I used the taps it caused a racket which lasted 30 seconds after they were switched off. This was brought to the attention of the owner. -the internet was at normal SA speed in common areas, but I had no coverage in my room, which one of the staff confirmed was normal. Three-star accommodation with five-star staff in a five-star location. It was perfect for my purposes (I extended my stay by three days) but I could understand if it didn't fit everyone's needs.

Not 4 star, over priced, very friendly staff

Isobel, breakfast, location
7.3
This is not 4 star and you can definitely find cheaper and nicer hotels and guest houses in this area and all over Cape Town. The owners aren't very nice but their staff members are very friendly, especially isobel. They go out of their way just to make u feel Comfortable (unlike the rude owners) and breakfast is very good. So sad that they made one of their staff members who was a lady around 60 carry heavy luggage to the second floor so we just chose to help her. The wifi is slow and not available in the room. There's also some difficulty with the connection. But isobel is awesome.

Friendly Staff & Excellent Breakfast

The staff was very professional and personable. Each room is unique. It was very easy to find and a quick drive to the V & A Waterfront. Great stay for the price.
