Delightful stay with consistently high-quality service. Exceptional cleanliness and friendly staff.
Love the fact that it is close to the beach.
Management just needs to manage sprinklers that go on at night for the swimming pool facing rooms. For light sleepers, this can be a disturbance.

The Sir David is the ideal 'home away from home' for this digital nomad. My spacious, well presented bedroom has a desk & coffee station opens out to the pool in the garden. There's a comfortable lounge area, fantastic breakfast and a self-service well stocked bar and pool table.
The 12-seat conference room is the perfect professional setting to entertain clients and the wifi is super fast! Well over 60Mbps!

But it's the staff who make the stay simply magical - with their warm smiles and 'nothing's too much trouble' attitude. Even the gardener is considerate and knocked on my door to ask if now was a convenient time to mow the lawn.

My favourite 'office space' in the lodge is sitting on the upstairs balcony overlooking the sea that's just a few 100m away.

5 stars all the way!

The Sir David has every facility an internationla business or leisure traveller would want, with unrivalled access to the beautiful beach, but the thing that blew me away was the home comfort, with an honesty bar and a lounge that residents could share.
It adds a perfect relaxed and personal touch for people who spend too much time in chain hotels.
I will definitely choose the Sir David again!

From the minute you step into the Sir David, you’re enveloped by beautiful sea views and so much tranquility. Breakfasts are scrumptious and Mabel makes mean scrambled eggs. I highly recommend a stay here.

It was a fantastic stay.! We were accommodated a day earlier than our original booking in a very hospitable manner when we suddenly required a change of plan. The room was spacious, the view wonderful, the breakfast scrumptious and well-prepared. We enjoyed the honesty bar in the lounge where we could help ourselves to a midnight snack. There was a municipal generator going though the night the first evening, which influenced our sleep a bit. Marlie sorted the problem out early the next morning and we had a blissful night filled with sound sleep the following evening. Just note that parking is on the premises, but not secured. Will definitely go back. Enjoyed it tremendously!

Rogz has supported Sir David Boutique Guest House for many years now and will continue to do so. It offers us a great facility for breakaway focussed meetings / mini conferences as well as top class guest house for our visiting partners from around the world.

Its unique positioning proudly shows off our Mother City has to offer and the warm, friendly and efficient staff go the extra mile to make our time at the Sir David as comfortable and as memorable as possible.

Highly recommended!

We had a very nice stay during a windy, cold and rainy three days. The staff of the quest house were friendly and professional. The guest house is very centrally located and walking distance to close by restaurants and shopping centers. The room we stayed in has beautiful view of the ocean. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable.

We had a really relaxed one night stay at the Sir David. Very nice room with a sea view and a good breakfast in the morning. Good location to visit Rietvlei nature reserve if you like birds and the kite surfing is incredible
