Brilliant hotel, 10 minute walk from waterfront. The staff are brilliant and hotel only has about 5 rooms so they make your stay very personable. A great centre point for all your travels around Cape Town.

Myself and my husband began our honeymoon trip with 4 nights in Villa Zest. Our stay was perfect. Location is wonderful, close to the Waterfront (walked sometimes, got taxis other times which were very reasonably priced). Staff in the hotel were amazing, really friendly nothing was too much trouble. Yummy breakfasts to fuel up before a busy day sightseeing. Really...

We discovered this hotel from reading Trip Advisor. It is located within a 10 minute walk of the waterfront area. The hotel is very modern and immaculate . The breakfast was superb. Lovely outdoor area around the pool.

The location is 10 mins walk from Waterfront and 10 mins to great restaurants locally. This hotel is very clean, modern and facilities are good. They have a large lounge area with drink and food service. You can also order drinks for around the pool area. Local taxis cost a small fee to take you to a Waterfront if you...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hotel staff was wonderful and had great suggestions on restaurants as well as activities. We loved the location and found we could walk or bus to most spots.

We stayed at Villa Zest for three nights at the start of a two week trip in South Africa. It was just the perfect choice. Great location - a short walk from the waterfront and beautifully appointed. Our room was huge with an amazing bath and separate shower. The garden / pool area was perfect after a day exploring the...

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in October and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Tracey and her staff were extremely welcoming and nice. I did communicate with Tracy via email before our arrival to get some advice regarding our plans in Cape Town and I was always receiving quick and valuable responses. Eventually she booked a...

Lovely hotel with amazing staff. They really couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Great wifi in the public places. Only downside is they are building a block of flats overlooking the pool. But TBH there is no where in Sea Point or Green Point that isn't!
