This beautiful hotel is a must stay.
It's clean, has friendly and efficient staff, is nicely decorated and quiet with great breakfasts, as well as snacks and drinks available throughout the day.
The proprietors of Derwent House, Armin and Anahid, were very hands on and around to provide very knowledgeable tips on where to eat and what to see. Not only did they make great recommendations for restaurants and wines, they made the reservations for us!
We felt like we stayed with good friends in Cape Town.

The location is incredible and walking distance to great eatery's and shopping.
No taxi needed.
A must try is Chef's Warehouse and Canteen, but a word of caution, go early for dinner as they don't take reservations and the food was fabulous.
Wifi is free with good speed and strength throughout the hotel. I had no issues or dropped calls.
Cape Town is a safe and walk-able city.
The Hop On and Hop Off was a great way to learn about the city.
Many thanks to Lucky for her hospitality and infectious smile.
Overall we had a fabulous stay and would recommend Derwent House to all travelers.

My family stayed at Derwent House a year ago. It was a great base for exploring Cape Town - quiet, walkable, easy cab ride to other locations. The staff was very helpful and the hotel itself was charming and comfortable. I would return!

We spent a lovely few days here whilst on our honeymoon. The staff were amazing presenting us with a congratulatory bottle of bubbly on our arrival. They recommended and booked some fabulous restaurants and Carol, the owner, managed to get us a lunch booking at The Taste Kitchen for our last day in the City. The breakfasts were delicious and the honesty bar had a great selection of wines.

We stayed in the fabulous room for 7 nights. The hotel is very cozy and feels like home.
The breakfast was amazing. The room was a little bit small. The service was perfect everyone was very welcoming and helpful with recommending activities and restaurants and booking for us everything.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Derwent House experience. We stayed for three nights before returning for a further two. Staff were exceptionally friendly and polite and went out of their way to accommodate bookings, reservations etc.

The location just off Kloof St makes for a handy base. Many restaurants and bars are in walking distance and even a walk to the waterfront can be managed in about half an hour.

Breakfast was fantastic everyday! Our five night stay meant we got to sample most of the breakfast menu with the smoked haddock a notable standout.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 3 have pool views. 1 and 4 give you a peak at Table Mountain on a clear day.
