                              Upper Wynberg wouldnt have been my first choice of a location to stay in the Cape Town area, but I had 2 days of business here and wanted to avoid a commute. I picked the Palm House primarily because of its location, not really knowing what to expect. What a pleasant surprise! A spacious, clean and comfortable room in a charming old mansion, wifi, attentive service, and outstanding food. Plus, a pool in which to work out my frustrations at the end of the day.

                              The manager was especially helpful. When we arrived there was no hot water in the downstairs. So he obligingly let 4 of our group move to 2 other cottages for the night. The room service food was exceptional. Breakfast was delicious, prompt and served by delightful waitstaff. the security guard was helpful and pleasant.
