The Tree House Boutique Hotel
Ranked #6 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 24 August 2017

We stayed four nights as a couple in August. We wanted to to stay someplace away from the hubbub of downtown and were attracted by the website photos. In addition to the hotel being as beautiful as advertised, the staff made it warm and welcoming.

The hotel is situated at the top of a steep street climbing up Signal Hill away from Somerset street, within walking distance of V&A and the stadium, and about 20-30 minutes from City Bowl (about 50 rand by cab). There is a Woolworths grocery nearby as well as many dining options.

Our room was very comfortable, decorated in a minimalist style. We had a private deck overlooking the pool and with a view of the waterfront, partially obstructed by a large palm tree, plus a little view around the corner of Signal hill. The blackout curtains helped keep the sun from waking us, while a little oblique light filtering in from the glass shower around the corner kept us from oversleeping. While there is no minibar, there are refreshments available in the breakfast area, including a fresh baked goodies in the afternoon awaiting weary tourists.

Breakfast itself was a wonderful spread of bread, meats, cheeses, pickles, fruit, juice and a selection of hot dishes cooked to order. Service is prompt and personable. Te eating/lounge area looks out through large glass doors to the pool and garden. Even though the winter weather was cold and rainy we were able to enjoy a little bit of the outdoors in comfort.

All of the staff were wonderful, from the owner to the concierge to the night man. Our experience was a lovely introduction to Cape Town and a great value. Highly recommended.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the tree house boutique hotel and had a wonderful experience. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we felt we got to know them personally. The accommodation was great. Nice modern and tasteful rooms with great breakfast and a different cake each afternoon which was also a treat. A great place to relax or use as a hub to explore the rest of Cape Town

Our trip here was perfect in every way! The staff are magnificent! Each and every staff member is polite, friendly and more than happy to help with all aspects of Cape Town and the hotel. This hotel was by far the best hotel I have stayed in - beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, lovely neighbourhood and the most comfortable bed! I can't wait to stay here again for my next trip to Cape Town!

Staying at the Tree House Botique is such a treat! The ladies at the front are extremely friendly and helpful and have a heart for hospitality and make you feel right at home and comfortable. As a solo traveler coming to South Africa for the first time they were very helpful in helping me make arrangements and just having a friendly chat. The rooms are large, clean and charming. Breakfast is fantastic and always hosts an amazing spread with the option to order a hot breakfast. Location is also key! Nestled in a quiet area, but a short walk down the hill and you are heading into the city center (about 10-15 min walk). I've loved my stay here and would without hesitation recommend to anyone coming to visit Cape Town! You're in for a treat! :)
