This was my 4th visit to 2inn1 and it continues to be an oasis. A huge thank you to Clare, Steffi, Klaus and Chris and all the staff your attention to detail is amazing. No request is an obstacle you just have to ask and it's done, from arranging transfers to/ from the airport and trips to check ins when...

my husband and I recently stayed at the 2inn1 and to put it simply, this amazing little hotel has raised the bar for anywhere we will stay in the future. The inn is simply flawless - the service is warm, accommodating, and suggests great ideas to experience and enjoy Cape Town. We wouldn't have had the positive, rich experience that...

It was our fifth visit and on the last day of our stay we already made the booking for our next visit! It was another perfect holiday with great hospitality, warm and friendly service from the whole team, the best breakfast in town, beautifully appointed guest rooms - it cannot get any better! Being in the hotel business myself I...

From when we first arrived with the help unloading the car at the end of the road trip - so many little bags, to the provision of a local mobile phone, to the fantastic breakfast this hotel is the bee's knees if only all hotels were as good as this. Nothing was too much trouble, I lost a camera (careless)...

This was our 2nd time to the 2inn1 having stayed here when we got married in Cape Town in 2013. We were concerned it wouldn't live up to our memories but we needn't have worried. As per all the other TA reports it is simply faultless. It was like meeting old friends seeing the Fab Four, Klaus, Chris, Claire &...

Faultless - does not do Klaus & Chris' boutique B&B justice. Peerless - insulting to Claire&Steffi I see it very simply - if I owned a hotel in Cape Town I would want it to be the 2Inn1. After 10 years their kindness, attention to detail and sublime offering remains without equal. They rescued us from Misty Hills. They re-shaped...

Sadly we have just left the 2inn1 after our annual stay here. It is still our favourite hotel to stay in and is like a home from home except better as at home we have no Steffi or Claire to make our lives so easy! The whole team here are marvellous and it is a joy to see so many...

Having been in the 1Inn1 for about the 6th time I can express my happyness with this place. The service and quality stays on the same high level since the beginning. The two owners with their two lady managers provide a great service, friendly and attentive. The breakfast is nice and the egg creations phantastic. Always a pleasure to be...

Stylish hotel set below Table Mountain. We've never been looked after so well; our welcome by Kenneth was warm and jolly (we enjoyed his company - we didn't make it to our room for an hour!). In the morning the owners Chris and Klaus were extremely attentive and made sure we had everything we needed and an itinerary planned. All...

We started our honeymoon in Capetown in this amazing boutique hotel... We found the staff so welcoming and friendly. On arrival we were warmly greeted and briefed on the optional activists! Steffie had also looked after booking reservations for two of the most popular restaurants in Capetown! The Test Kitchen and Pot Luck! It was a wonderful surprise as both...
