A B&B Gem
This B&B is located outide the core of Capetown, and allows easy acces to all areas. Hotel is beautiful and well-kept. Very comfortable stay. We'll go back.
It was superb. Owners and staff respectful of our privacy, but helpful when needed. We were so pleased with the comfort. Air in the room is very good for sleeping. Parking is secure. Hotel located in a safe area. Nice pool, great views of Table Mountain. We've stayed in half a dozen lodges and B&Bs in South Africa. This one is our favorite.

Lovely room
Cleanliness, comfort, luxury room
Quiet - one had to look for the staff. Most disappointing thing was I was just an overnight stay, arrived lunchtime by taxi with work to do but the guest house provided neither lunch nor dinner, as I had not prebooked. Walking 20 minutes through strange streets to the nearest restaurant was not good. To expect a stranger to walk in Cape Town in a quiet area is a drawback. One had to go looking for the staff but the lady was very helpful. She even got up half an hour early to make my breakfast. The room was excellent, although the wi-fi was intermittent - not a strong signal. TV channels were limited. I would certainly stay there again - but I'd in transit would book my dinner in advance.
