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.

2 Reviews on Parker Cottage

We were pleasantly surprised by the extra effort made by Phil and Liz. We arrived late afternoon and found that they had already supplied us with something to eat and proper filter coffee for the next morning. It was a wonderful surprise to see that they had thought of this small but meaningful detail. The loft is beautiful and the building very impressive. The access to the rooftop pool and gym in the ajoining building is another great bouns feature - one we were unfortunatly unable to try out due to bad weather. This is definitely the best value for money out of all the self-catering apartments we've stayed in and we've stayed in some awesome places before. The loft is top of our list for next time we're in town.

I stayed nine nights at Parker Cottage and it was very nice. I opted for a regular room, though I should have spent a little extra for the ambience of the "luxury" suites because they were very nice. The staff was lovely and breakfasts were good. I did not go for the hot breakfast, but it was offered every day. As this property is victorian-era, it does not have central heat, so be prepared in winter!
