We had 3 wonderfull days in the hotel and stayed in a classy room with private terrace and great view. Mark, the manager made us feel very welcome and invited us for a drink and snacks. Breakfast was extended and varied : large selection of fresh juces, fruit, cheese and meat. So great base to explore Capetown! We hope to come back soon!

This hotel is tucked away with stunning views of the ocean,just a few rooms with lots of space and all with modern technology.
Mark,the manager, is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble for him and his team who are quietly there in the background ready to help whenever you need them.
Breakfast offers a fabulous selection of fresh fruits,meats and cheeses plus a menu of cooked items freshly made to order. Tea and then canapes available later in the day!
The location is excellent, not too far from either the VA Waterfront or Camps Bay.
This was the perfect end to a busy 2 week tour and I cannot wait to return

We were greeted on arrival mid morning by hotel manager, Mark, who immediately made us feel welcome with a glass of bubbly, which we enjoyed in the lounge area overlooking the pool and ocean. Although the hotel is in a very residential area with buildings all around, it's location on a hillside allows a good view to the sea above the rooftops and the infinity pool is a real feature, adding a serene ambience to the setting. Our room was downstairs, opening out onto the pool terrace with our own little piece of private decking with loungers. The room was cool, clean and minimalist in style with tiled floor and semi open plan bathroom and shower. We did feel that the shower was rather exposed as there was no blind on the window that looked onto a path down the side of the building, even though we only saw this being used by staff during the day. It was a nice surprise to have some UK sockets and USB ports in the room, removing the need for adaptors. Everything was hidden away in cupboards and a master panel controlled the lighting, music, air con, heating, etc. Even the blind had its own remote control. There was plenty of storage space but no full length mirror! We had to use reflections in the glass. Also, the selection of music available was not great, for example, the only option for classic rock was the soundtrack to Aladdin! With all that technology, surely there could be the facility to link up one's own iPod or phone? Either Mark or Antonio were always on hand to meet guests' needs, offer advice, book restaurants, etc. Their team were discreet and efficient. The breakfast spread was fresh and varied with many homemade products. Afternoon tea and evening canapés were complimentary, whilst at other times any form of drink, hot or cold, was available for guests to help themselves and write in a honesty book. Comfortable loungers (single and double), were well spaced around the pool. With only eight rooms, however, it never felt busy or crowded. It was definitely a little haven of luxury within easy reach of the city centre.

Dear 33judes,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful details feedback following your visit to Compass House.

Elegance, a home away from home feeling and personal service mean everything to us. Indeed Compass House is wind free zone, one of the very best location in cape town with 20 meter infinity pool, beautiful view of the Atlantic sea, close to Cape Town City Center, The Waterfront, Beaches and Table mountain.

Thank you again for every details feedback about the room, all the room by pool level are newly renovated and slightly delayed item in few rooms, we now have installed blind for the bathroom which can be control with remote to give more privacy. To be more piratical and convenient for our guest, all our room have International sockets and USB. We now have upgraded the music system, guest can even play music from their own device now. The full length mirror are added to the room as well.

Once again we appreciate the valuable feedback in particular the food, room design, breakfast, the hotel view and amazing services.. It was a real pleasure to read such details and positive words!

We hope to welcoming you back soon.

Kindest regards
Compass House team

It's the first time we stay in a "small" hotel and the experience is unforgettable, "small" by the number of rooms but "big" in providing an excellent service you can expect from big names. We felt like home but then a home where all your wishes come true before you may think of them !! The hotel and the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and you have stunning views over the ocean. The breakfast is delicious with a great variety of local products and in the afternoon tea is served with snacks
