My family stayed at Little scotia over a weekend and enjoyed the hospitality and loved it. The environment is very serene. Breakfasts served and place in close proximity to shops and amenities. Later realized that Airport transfer was a bit pricey so might just need the hotel to check on this next time with their contractors alternatively one can do...

Dear Moyra Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your Stay. I am sad to hear the transfer was expensive. Please could you confirm what you were charged for this service and I will certainly be following up on this. Kind regards Michelle

We spent our honeymoon at Little Scotia and thoroughly enjoyed it! The staff were helpful and accommodating, and the room was clean and comfortable. We had a really wonderful week here! Well done to everyone at Little Scotia! We felt welcome and at home! We'll be back!

Stayed there with my wife for our 3rd anniversary holiday in SA. Had a great time, it's located in a great neighborhood that has alot of food joints that you can visit even late at night. Also check out Hussar's grill round the corner (have to make a reservation though)

The location in Rondebosch is excellent both if visiting UCT or Cape Town in general. There is secure off-road parking. Beautiful garden setting where one could quite happily relax for the day. Service professional and friendly. Superb breakfast . Reasonably priced. Try to avoid a room in the double storey house furthest away from the main area as I could...

Loved this place, I especially love the way it is cozily arranged around a beautiful small pool and covered in gorgeous thick tropical bushes and flowers. So you can have breakfast by the pool , or sit in one of the many pretty seating areas arranged amongst the flowers and trees. I asked for a room with a view and...

The guesthouse has nice rooms and is serviced daily, but was a bit difficult if you are used to a fridge in the room. It can only be a small fridge as the milk that you get is very limited and I always like to buy my own to have more than one coffee. The guesthouse is very safe and...

Little Scotia is a lovely place with really friendly staff. Being there in December, with a full program, it was nice to come 'home' to such a cosy place.. However, I noticed that during my stay of 8-days the bed linen was never changed nor the towels, which kind of put me off a bit. Breakfast was lovely provided you...

Tucked away close to the Baxter Theatre. Loads to eat near by if on a budget. It is clean and safe. Secure parking with electronic keys. Free unlimited universal coded wifi. Pool and big breakfasts. Excellent prices (hostel prices with hotel standards!). We definitely stay here when next in Cape Town
