                                              The place has a relaxed vibe. The decor is creative and rustic. The bed was super comfy and they provide plenty of tea and coffee in the rooms. Good atmosphere.

                                              from reservation to arrival, it's been marvelous. Top dollar hosts and their team members were responsible for many memorable moments.I hope to see you again soon.

                                              The reception at the venue were great,very welcoming.Room excellent for the price we paid. The area were very quiet ,which made our sleep for the night very comfortable.Being in our sixties made the  constant movement to and fro from our car up the stairs a bit of a hassle.Otherwise , I would recommend the place for people to enjoy the visit to Cape Town.
