“A delightful Victorian guesthouse in the central Tamboerskloof District. Some of the 'African Zen' contemporary rooms boast balconies with views of the iconic Table mountain. Walking distance from some of Cape Town's best restaurants and bars. A stylish city escape. ”

Hotel Review

A beautifully decorated conversion of three Victorian terraced houses makes a charming guesthouse. Inside, it is airy and stylish, done out in subtle calm colours, patterns and textures. The large comfortable sitting room has an honesty bar (there’s also a guests’ fridge), and the library has internet access as well as books. Bedrooms are all different, with bags of character and crisp cotton linen. Immaculate, attentive housekeeping.

See What They Say

Three historic terrace houses linked together creating an impressive twelve bedroom boutique hotel with exceptionally generous proportions, ideal for visitors who want a gently pampered environment near to the main attractions of the ‘Mother City’. The Villa is situated half way between the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Table Mountain Cableway in a quiet residential quarter with a lovely ‘village’ feel within a short stroll of the centre of Cape Town and a large number of its best restaurants.
