Many of the reviews talk about how wonderful breakfast is. Believe them. The manager was incredibly nice and accommodating of our late arrival and late departure times. If you're looking for a place to stay in Sea Point, this is it.

Great stay, great hosts. Awesome linen and incredible breakfasts. I really enjoyed my stay and think it's in a great position. I'm a light sleeper, so struggled a bit to sleep in room 1, overlooking the road with road noise, my colleague sleep in another room, like the dead. I think a blind over the beautiful stained glass window above...

We had a spacious room with good beds. The breakfasts are really delicious and served by one of the friendly owners. The Town centre and the Waterfront are within a 15 minutes drive. At night is your car overlooked by a private guard !

The area is safe to walk around in, also in the evening, and there are some nice restaurants and supermarkets at walking distance.

What a beautiful place! We very much enjoyed our wonderful room, the super-comfortable bed and the spotless bathroom! The breakfast was the best ever, fresh home-baked bread, muffins, home-made muesli and much more. All this is even topped by the most charming hosts, thank you so much! I can't wait to be back!

Space was exactly as advertised -- clean, comfortable, cozy. Breakfast was delightful, staff was attentive, and everything was top-notch. Welcome was incredibly attentive and the manager on duty was great, helping us store suitcases even though we were early for checkout. Seriously, make sure to wake up in time for that breakfast, it's amazing.
