    Second visit to this excellent guesthouse near to Newlands set in a quiet road with beautiful garden. Close to M3 with easy access to city and to the south. Only a few minutes to Kirstenbosch Gardens. Stayed in a two bedroom family room which was very comfortable. Superb breakfast served by the excellent staff in beautiful surroundings which are lovingly maintained inside and out. To be recommended.

    Luxury guesthouse

    Excellent guesthouse. Location is superb, in Newlands which is a lovely residential area, with views of the table mountain range. Pool and garden area excellent. Facilities and comfort of room also excellent. Breakfast was also excellent. Lots of restaurants within a five/ten minute drive. Can only recommend.
