Travellers' Choice
The Tree House Boutique Hotel is nestled amongst lush trees and enjoys the most amazing panoramic views thus leading to its fitting name. The hotel is positioned in vibrant and trendy Green Point, within easy walking distance of many of the great attractions of Cape Town; the fashionable V&A Waterfront, the lively Bo-Kaap, the chic Cape Quarter, the famous Cape Town Stadium and indeed the Central Business District. The specifically designed public spaces benefit from enormous attention to detail and include bespoke works from local artist and handpicked furniture and fabrics. The striking atrium reception area leads into a relaxing and intimate bar area. This in turn leads into the main lounge which has unique and exceptional artwork on display, and where guests can relax for afternoon tea, or cocktails and canapes. All rooms are all furnished with a super king size bed, full en-suite bath and shower, television, air-conditioning, free wi-fi, in-room safe and tea and coffee making facilities. A stay at The Tree House Boutique Hotel offers guests an exceptional haven which offers guests a sense of escape, wonder and respite while continuing their personal journey. The Tree House Boutique Hotel is part of The Living Journey Collection and beautifully compliments Zest Boutique Hotel in Cape Town, Chapter House Boutique Hotel in Franschhoek, One Marine Drive Boutique Hotel in Hermanus, and River Manor Boutique Hotel in Stellenbosch.

This hotel is a little gem, it’s very clean, quiet and comfortable in a good location for walking to the V&A Waterfront. The outdoor area is small but very peaceful and quiet. The breakfasts are wonderful with a good choice and cooked to perfection. However the best thing about this hotel is the staff, they are very friendly with a strong focus on offering excellent customer service. We really enjoyed our stay at the Tree House Boutique and will most definitely book again the next time we are in Cape Town.

Fabulous stay at The Tree House, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. We were very lucky as well to be able to check in 3 hours early which was a great help. All the staff are so friendly and kind. Our suite was well furnished and very comfortable.

The best choice of accomodation. Best service, above and beyond, great value for money and beautiful rooms. From the moment we walked in to complimentary champagne and roses on our bed, to the moment we left with helping of our bags, the entire team were incredible. Elton and his team were remarkable! Made our honeymoon fantastic- thanks Tree House!!!

Dear Jann Thank you for taking the time to post a review, and for choosing The Tree House Boutique Hotel for your recent trip to Cape Town. We always say that a returning guest is the biggest compliment of all, so we are delighted that you came back a second time. Our tour and transport offering is very popular. With our own cars and drivers, we find that many guests do not hire a car in Cape Town and use the convenience of our drivers as a preferred option. I am very pleased that you enjoyed this. They also offer tour guiding, and airport transfers. Please stay in touch and let us know when you are planning your next trip to the area. We wo0uld love to welcome you back to The Tree House Boutique Hotel, or another one of The Living Journey Collection in Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Hermanus and Robertson. Warm regards and thanks again. Lorraine

Check-in was smooth: I arrived a little early but I was accommodated within an hour of arrival. I had some breakfast while I waited; but the à la carte selections were limited, so was the breakfast menu. The room was large enough and clean - but there was no pressing iron. The staff was welcoming and professional; however I returned from NYE celebration with a friend for a quick stop before proceeding but the receptionist wanted to charge $50 USD which I thought was rather laughable and ridiculous. I told the receptionist to print out a copy of the hotel policy but in the end everything was sorted out. However that was a huge inconvenience and an embarrassment. If you book a room here don’t expect to bring a guest or have a guest visit you. The receptionist at checkout was very nice and social; I missed breakfast but he offered me some coffee before I left. It’s the little things that matter.

Dear Julls Thank you for choosing The Tree House Boutique Hotel for your recent trip to Cape Town. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate your feedback. There is an ironing service in the hotel, and it would have been our pleasure to press your clothes for you. I see that you booked a single room, there is, with us and all hotels, a different charge for double occupancy. We apologize that this was embarrassing for you and are pleased that it was sorted out. Thanks again and warm regards. Lorraine

The staff really made the difference for us at this small, very well run hotel. Elton and Sukinwa were attentive and took initiative as to what we needed. We were able to check in early to make a 12 noon appointment in the city, we had laundry done and delivered perfectly, we had delicious breakfasts and afternoon cake and coffee. The room had a nice balcony and comfortable chairs, the bed and other furniture were equally high quality. There was a coffee service in the room with nice options. A few hooks in the room would help. Also, a towel rack near the sink. However, the facilities, amenities, location, and staff are tremendous and we would stay here again with complete confidence.

This hotel is fab - the staff are very friendly and at the end of our stay we felt they had made such an effort to get to know us and went out of their way to help with queries. A small friendly hotel where you matter. Breakfasts are wonderful - hot choices and a good buffet selection. Loved the daily cake from 3pm. Location is perfect - safe to walk to waterfront area. You are a short walk down the hill to the Cape Town stadium and the road with restaurants and cafes around that. Room - loved the space and the modern touches esp the shower. Nice view from the balcony. I will stay in this hotel when visiting Cape Town in the future. Loved it. Thank you

Dear Gwen Thank you so much for your review, and we also hated to say goodbye! It is wonderful to read how much you enjoyed your time with us at The Tree House Boutique Hotel, and we appreciate you choosing us for your recent trip to Cape Town. Thank you mentioning so many special little elements of our hotel. The art is a wonderful collection but South African artists, mostly from Cape Town, and over the years we have often linked the artists with our guests, so they can have some unique pieces commissioned. This is always such a pleasure, and the quality of the work is just amazing. I am so pleased that you enjoyed this. Please stay in touch and let us know when you are planning your next trip to the area. We would love to welcome you back to The Tree House Boutique Hotel, or perhaps to another one of The Living Journey Collection in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Hermanus and Robertson. Thanks again for your wonderful endorsement and warm regards. Lorraine
