Extremely pleasant experience. Anthony went out of his way to look after me. I never felt like a visitor, I felt like a friend. The guest house is in a perfect location. Very clean and homely. Perfect home away from home.

Excellent service and comfortable place to stay in Cape Town. Close to the nicer restaurants in Cape Town and very close to the heart of the CBD if you stay for business. Definitely my no 1 choice to stay when in Cape Town.
