My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Parker Cottage. It is very quiet, quaint, beautifully decorated, and the staff are wonderful—especially Jameson, who served us breakfast every morning. The complementary five-course breakfast was amazing! Management and office staff (Pamela, Tom, and Phaedra) were...More

About
Description
Welcome to Parker Cottage! We’re a little different than the usual hotel or guesthouse experience. Rather than being just a conventional ‘place to sleep’, we offer a very much unplugged, urban retreat right in More the creative heart of Cape Town. So although we offer free and fast internet, we don't do minibars, piped music or even reception desks. Think of us like a country house in the middle of the city. We’re the kind of place where you can rediscover the art of conversation, endless breakfasts and total serenity. Parker is a social place too: our legendary free wine evenings occur at least twice a week and there’s no ‘cut off’ time for our gourmet breakfasts either. Less

The air transfer is not free but it is excellent and not overly expensive. The cottage will book for you. The service is completely reliable.
