    I don’t often write reviews; usually to complain or to extoll only. I’d rather not write a review here as I don’t want anyone to know about this gem for fear of not getting in again!

    Perfect perfect perfect.. attention to detail, fabulous breakfast, stunning room, beautiful cosy pool area with great views and plenty of sun. The staff were all on point the housekeeping immaculate, the upkeep of the property impeccable. If you’re looking for a boutique relaxed stay in Cape Town avoiding the crowds and bigger resort type hotels then this is your place. We will be returning for sure!

    Room tip: Let the team do everything for you ! Book early to get best room choice

    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.
