Fabulous

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Jan 2024via mobile
We have absolutely loved our stay at Compass House. Johan and Gerard couldn’t have done enough for us. Everything is immaculate here and the views are breathtaking. I particularly loved the breakfasts, the fresh fruit and homemade yoghurt was delicious and my husband loved the freshly made omelettes. A great stay for the end of our 3 week trip to South Africa. Thank you .

We loved everything about Compass House. The fabulour infinity pool, ideal for a dip before breakfast. The views. The breakfasts! Wow, so beautifully presented with fresh joices, home-made bread and yoghourt and prefectly done eggs any way you want them. Nice crispy bacon, too! Gerrard and his staff were fantastic - great service and attention to detail. We will definitely be back.

Room tip: Rooms on pool level are the best

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!! The staff were quite simply perfection with Gerard and Yohan going above and beyond to make your stay as seamless as possible! Definitely would recommend this hotel for couples seeking a chilled relaxed vibe! The breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. Complementary cake and canapés were a lovely touch.

This is a very special hotel with excellent service, location and access to Cape Town attractions. Staff - Gerard, Yohan and Cloe and team - ensure that no detail that contributes to guest comfort is overlooked. The hotel provides a wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit and cooked breakfast as guests desire. There is also afternoon tea and cake on offer as well as evening hors d'oeuvres and nightcaps with a wide range of wines and spirits - a personal favourite is Amarula. The environment is perfect for couples who seek a private and peaceful environment with great amenities, for example, a good sized pool for lengths or chilling at the end of a day sightseeing with fantastic sea view. Nothing is too much trouble for the Compass House team and we thank you them for a memorable stay.

We just returned from Capetown and stayed at the Compass House Boutique. It was the most amazing place to spend our time while we weren't out site seeing. The kitchen was always stocked with snacks. The breakfast was included and made to order. I enjoyed eggs benedict several mornings which were delicious. The rooms are large, clean and well maintained. The pool water was cold but considering it was winter in Capetown, the air temp was beautiful because the place blocked the wind. We watched amazing sunsets from the comfortable couches outside by the pool. Johan was always taking care of us and getting us anything we needed. I would stay there again without hesitation and I am so appreciative of the staff and how they made our experience incredible!
Thank you to all of the hardworking staff at Compass House.

A warm welcome with an Aperol spritz while were checked in, gasping at the vast view of the sea the minute you walk through the front door. Out room had French windows out to the pool with personal comfy sun beds to lie on and then a few feet away to the pool even bigger four poster beds to chill out on. You can lie down and watch the sunset over the sea right in front of you and its so quiet doesn't feel like you are in a major city. The room was really comfortable with loads of high tech lighting and sound control (you can log into spotify for the speaker in the room). The breakfast was really, really good, with the most perfectly presented omelette I have ever ordered. The staff were so charming and attentive. Had a friend round for breakfast, they immediately laid a place for her to join in, no questions asked. Parking our rented SUV securely onsite was no problem. We felt like the only guests there which made it feel like we had the whole place to ourselves which was an added bonus. Ubers to nearby recommended restaurants are super easy and cheap. Great location in a safe feeling neighbourhood. Really recommend this place.

Room tip: In May there's so few people it feels like you have the place to yourself
