We have spent 4 nights pre-booked at the Walden house end of September 2013. And we will never return.

Our second stay an the Walden. Lovely house and room. Staff exceedingly friendly and obliging. No tea/coffee making facilities in rooms but both available at any time on request. Position on easily navigated route to both the V & A and Table Mountain. Many restaurants close by.Would use again on any future trip to Cape Town.
