          Amazing B&B!”

          My husband and I stayed at Parker Cottage for 4 nights at the tail end of our South Africa vacation. We were warmly greeted by the staff and was given great information about what to do in the Cape Town area. Breakfast here is a wonderful experience. The food is superb, with new specials every day! We stayed in one of the cozy rooms. Even though these were the smallest rooms in the B&B, there was plenty of room for both us. As for parking, Parker Cottage provided security guards who monitor the vehicles parked on the street 24/7 and are very nice individuals who welcome you back to the B&B when coming back from dinner. The location is wonderful as well; close to major sites of interests and restaurants. Will definitely stay here in the future!

          Awesome B&B in Cape Town”

          Loved the location which was so close to the restaurants and hot spots in Cape Town. Also, great staff. Owner, Phil was a great host. Loved the Friday night wine tasting hosted by Phil.

          Attentiveness, location, breakfast

          We have been in other guest houses in Cape Town before, this is the first time we felt like we were at home, Thomas welcomed us as if we were old friends or family giving us all details about the surrounding areas. The rooms are always clean and in perfect conditions as it is the rest of the guest house.

          Great random find that turns out to be a real gem. The staff were wonderful and the food was great. What a great welcome/first impression of Cape Town. Stayed for 3 nights and wanted to stay longer but hotel was fully booked. Rooms were clean and airy. Bathroom was modern. Wifi was fast.

          Best place we've stayed in 30 countries!”

          The service is above and beyond, the five course breakfast is amazing and the location is perfect!

          We spent a week at Parker Cottage and will never consider staying anywhere else in Cape Town! We will be sending all our friends and family here. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and Phil, the owner, helped plan our itinerary for the week. We had a couple of activities pre-booked and Phil followed up with the companies to confirm pick-up times and to make sure there would be no issues. The house and garden are beautiful, everything is spotless, the room is nicely appointed and the five course breakfast is amazing! What really sets Parker Cottage apart is the staff. They are happy, friendly and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting and snacks in the yard with Phil and the other guests. There are awesome restaurants in Cape Town and Parker Cottage has a whole booklet of recommended restaurants to help you choose! We used their recommended driver for the Cape Peninsula Tour and had a fantastic day. I also recommend the Parker Cottage Walking tour as a good introductory to the city. Anything you wish hotels did, they do it! You will be very well looked after at Parker Cottage.

          Wunderbares Haus mit historischem Flair”

          Es war ein Erlebnis in diesem historischen Haus zu übernachten. Die Zimmer sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet und die anderen Räume im originalen Zustand der Entstehung des Hauses, sehr gut restauriert. Der Vorgarten ein Traum und das dort servierte Frühstück das Beste, was wir in vier Wochen bekamen. Da auch die Türen original sind, ist das Haus hellhörig, was man wissen muß und manchen Gästen nicht klar ist.
