We stayed at Harper’s House for 4 nights. Initially we were about to book another more expensive hotel for our time in Cape town, but my wife loved nice authentic design of Harper’s and we booked it. We shall admit, that this is the case, when reality is better than expectations. Harper’s is a very cosy and stylish villa. Especial thanks to the staff. We do really enjoyed “handmade hospitality” here. Many thanks for the breakfasts, which were very tasty and tailored for our preferences. Harper’s established a very high standard for all further hotels in our trip in South Africa.

I definitely prefer smaller hotels. And in light of the pandemic, big hotels are definitely no longer my accommodation of choice. Harpers House is exactly the kind of place that offers great value for money, super rooms, a real home away from home. The position is great, the staff are amazing. Shout out to Marion and Papy who were fantastic. And I absolutely loved all the different spaces where one could just chill and read a book, soak up the sun or indeed take a refreshing (cold) dip in the new pool.I travel to Cape Town regularly. This is my new go to. I just don't want everyone to know.

First of all, the place is complete renovated and you can see that they thought of every little detail. The rooms ar big, clean, with a Great private bathroom. There is a beautiful garden with different places to hang out. There is a fridge with drinks (also alcoholic) you a free to rake when you hang out in your room of garden. The Breakfast is lovely and you van order different things and the make it fresh for you. De locaties is good, its walkingdistance te the waterfront. There is always a guard in de night Who let you in when you Come back and there is a private parking for free. It's complete package of friendly staff en a lovely place to relax en discover Cape Town. There was nothing I didn't like (magbe the only thing is that it is an old house, so you can here People walking the stairs. But there a only 8 rooms so it is not busy.
