Welcome to Parker Cottage. We’re a little different to the usual hotel or guest house experience; rather than being just a conventional place to sleep, we offer a very much unplugged, urban retreat right in the creative heart of Cape Town. So although we offer free and fast Internet, we don`t do minibars, piped music or even reception desks.

We’re the kind of place where you can rediscover the art of conversation, endless breakfasts and total serenity. Parker Cottage is a social place too - our legendary wine evenings occur at least twice a week and there’s no cut-off time for our gourmet breakfasts either.
