I was impressed with Derwent House before I even step foot in South Africa. As soon as I booked my stay, the team got in touch with me to help prepare for my trip. They provided me with such helpful information, including that I needed to have 2 blank pages in my passport to travel to/from South Africa. (My airline failed to give me that info when I booked and didn't pass that info on until I checked-in for my flight 24 hours before--not helpful) Since I travel a lot, I only had one blank page, so I was able to get a new passport in time. They saved me a lot of money and headache right from the start. Then, from the moment we arrived, we were welcomed into a wonderful environment. We stayed in the Self-Catering apartment and the Fabulous Room. The apartment was spacious and a short walk away, but felt like a true extension of the hotel. It was cleaned everyday, and it was easy to contact the front desk whenever we needed something. They provided us with a smart phone that had internet and was pre-loaded with the reception number. The Fabulous Room was within the hotel and was a beautifully decorated room that overlooked the pool. The service from the Derwent House team was impeccable and was among the best service I've ever received at a hotel. Everyone at the hotel made our trip an unforgettable experience, and if I am ever back in Cape Town, I will stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a city renowned for hospitality, Derwent House stands out as one of Cape Town's leading boutique guesthouses. Located in the heart of the vibrant Tamboerskloof/Gardens neighbourhood, this small hotel combines historic charm, contemporary Afro-chic style and all mod-cons for a uniquely Capetonian blend of ambience, warmth, and comfort. Our wonderful team completes the picture -- we go the extra mile for you and our guests leave as friends. We love colour and celebrate African design - you'll find it everywhere. But when it comes to the basics - like breakfast, bedding, showers, climate control, Wi-fi or news from home - we don't compromise so you don't have to. At Derwent House, you're steps away from the hustle and buzz of Kloof Street, with its collection of superb restaurants, bars and trendy boutiques--and just a few further to the nightlife hub of Bree and Long Streets. Yet just a short car journey from the Table Mountain cable car, the beaches of Clifton or Camp's Bay, and the V&A Waterfront. There's nowhere more central -- but come and see for yourself. We're waiting for you! ... more less
