“A small stylish hotel in Higgovale, on the Table Mountain foothills. This intimate spot puts emphasis on peace and tranquility, each room comes with private balcony, most with phenomenal views of the city and bay. Check out nearby Kloof Street, Capetown's hottest spot for restaurants and bars. ”

Hotel Overview

“The eight rooms at this delightful hotel would be classed as junior suites in most hotels and have enough ‘amenities’ to satisfy the most dedicated sybarite. These include laptops with wi-fi connection, skype phones, i-pod docking stations, plasma TVs and dvd players, not to mention marble bathrooms and private terraces. The attractive decoration is modern with colourful African touches. There’s also a plunge pool, surrounded by decking.”

See What They Say

“"The coolest bolthole in the Cape... this place is a real find not because the setting is so great, in front of Table Mountain with views over town towards the Atlantic- but because of the techno injection... The bar is sexy as hell, and the hand picked furniture is fabulous. This is the perfect small city hotel." - TATLER Best City Boutique Hotel 2007”
