Wonderful and highly recommended!

Highly recommend this lovely and chic hotel to anyone going to Cape Town! The aesthetic is clean and modern with vibrant colors but it still manages to feel warm and welcoming. The owners and staff were so lovely and made the most beautiful breakfast: fresh fruit and cheese platter, homemade banana nut muffin, yogurt, and a latte!
