What made this hotel stand out for me was the staff and service. I had an unfortunate personal situation during my stay, and the staff (especially Gilbert and Tracy, plus the owners) made me feel as if I was family. This is exactly what you want when you're an 18 hour flight away from home. The backyard pool area is...

A smart boutique hotel with very friendly and attentive staff. Spent 5 nights exploring Cape Town from Villa Zest. Good location and a short walk (15mins ) from the Waterfront. Spacious modern rooms - all styled from the 1970's ( lots of white and clean lines not orange and kaftans ). Staff excellent always ready to help and provide advice...

Stayed here for 2 nights in March ideally located to visit all the attractions in Cape Town. Friendly very helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us . The hotel is peaceful (building work was opposite but never problematic) tastefully decorated modern bright and comfortable. Great base to explore CapeTown highly recommend.

We stayed there for two nights. There is a huge construction site just near the hotel, a tall building which prevents you from enjoying the pool and having your private time at the pool. The rooms are nice and modern but not spacious at all for people with big bags. The breakfast is basic but the women who works at...

I visited the Villa Zest hotel on the recommendation of a friend and I was really pleased. The hotel is modern and clean and welcoming and trendy in a unique way. The bedrooms seemed newly decorated and were spotless. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the roof terrace bar served by the friendly and knowledgeable Elton. The location is...

We stayed here in March for 3 nights and were impressed with the level of service and standard of hotel. Our room was on the ground floor and while it was probably the standard room it had lovely touches (cafetiere, lovely toiletries, fab shower). The staff were friendly and helpful, Elton in particular and you could see they took pride...

I had the pleasure of visiting Villa Zest in March this year with some friends and we had a fantastic time. The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful, in particular, Elton, the manager, was great. From the moment you walk in the front door, it is a colourful and cheerful experience....taking you back to the seventies! The rooms are funky...

The little hotel is well positioned within easy walking distance of the V and A waterfront. Apart from the V and A area there are restaurants even closer by if you only feel like a couple of minutes walk for your evening meal. The place is very well run with helpful and friendly staff. It has a small but pretty...

We visited Villa Zest after a short visit some years ago. The hotel is clean and centrally located. In front of the hotel a new highrise complex is being built which produced some noise during the day. Also with high winds building dust was blowing in the garden. Rooms are very nice. Clean and spacious. The villa in general is...

We spent 3 nights in Villa Zest Boutique hotel recently and found it to be a fantastic hotel in a great location. The staff at reception could not have helped us more, thank you Elton, Ernest, Gilbert, Laura and Tracey! We were particularly grateful for the help with our tickets for Table Mountain.
