Tranquil boutique guest house with stunning views.
Proximity, comfort and ambience!
Compass was perfect for us with direct access from car to our room. The decore was superb and the private balcony overlooking Bantry Bay was divine. We booked late so didn't get one of the 3 rooms opening out onto the infinity pool, but ours was private, comfortable and very relaxing atmosphere. We felt secure and had access to the lounges, pool area and business centres 24 hours of the day. Being on Kloof road helped us as we had easy road access up to Table Mtn, Lions Head, local restaurants and even the waterfront. Very easy to find our way around and aquatinted ourselves very quickly. Didn't need heavy meals so ate at two quaint Asian eateries Seoul and Tom Yum! Great food, great staff and great prices. For only having a two night stopover before flying home to Australia, we were able to accomplish heaps......up to Table Mountain on the cable car in crystal clear conditions, out to Robben Island for some Mandella history, a browse and shop around the waterfront, a chopper ride down over the Cape, a para glide off Lions peak and a trip out to the wineries in Stellenbosch before dropping our car back and flying home. Not a child friendly place but definitely a couples retreat....with the most magnificent outlook high on the hill. Loved it and will return when we can.

Superb Location and service with a smile
The Location was superb .. close to all the beautiful bays surrounding the city area. The bedroom was spacious with good quality fixtures & fittings. The owner & manager were personable, friendly & made you feel welcome & at home.
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at compass house, so much so, and noting as seasoned travellers, that it has changed our approach to our chosen hotel style for future trips. we usually enjoy staying at large deluxe hotels but our boutique experience was so enjoyable we will look to book smaller properties in future. we enjoyed the friendly approach of both the staff & guests. the location was superb, close to all of the beautiful bays / beaches that surround cape town city and the breakfast served each day was delicious !

I loved this place it was very relaxing and up market. Staff were terrific and helpful. Rooms well appointed with attention to detail. Really good continental breakfast. I thoroughly recommend a stay here but I do suggest a hire car to get around.
