I spent a week at Cape Standard and have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. David (the owner) and Margot were so helpful, including lining me up for an excellent one-day winelands tour. Paddington's cheery nature added to the pleasure of having a very good breakfast each morning -- continental aw well as various kinds of eggs...

This was my first time in Cape Town and the Cape Standard was selected by my company for our team to stay. The entire team at Cape Standard was incredibly accommodating, pleasant and wonderful. I felt as if they were family by the time we left. The entire place has a boutique feel to it, the lounge area and the...

Can't fault the front of house team for their friendliness but the cleanliness of the rooms certainly needs a shake up. Rooms are very basic, small beds, small screen TV (not that I was there too watch TV) surprised they have a TGSA 4 star rating.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to read that you think that the rooms are not cleaned to your satisfaction and that you find our star rating surprising. We are committed to the style of decor that people from the world over return to time and again. The beds are either queen or king size beds.

Cape Standard is a great find. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were offered great advice on where to go/where to eat and generally given a feel for Cape Town. The hotel arranged two guided trips for us and the quality of the trip/the car and the driver was first class. The rooms at...

Very friendly and helpful people here! The location may be a bit too far from the Waterfront by foot, but taxi takes only 50 rand or so. The breakfast was excellent with juices and the special health drinks. The area was quiet and safe. At least some of the villas have their own entrance straight from the street, which was...

Love the cute/chic decor and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Our stay included a delicious breakfast, which was a great start to the day. Walking distance to plenty of shops, restaurants and the VA Waterfront.

We stayed for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of this small hotel in a very convenient location for exploring CP. All the staff were very efficient and attentive but Paddington should get a special mention for his efforts, Justin had just started but is learning fast under Paddingtons wing. We enjoyed sitting outside for breakfast and looked forward...

A brilliant place for short or longer stay in Cape Town. A real boutique hotel; comfort, style, friendly, personal, relaxed. The place felt serene in the busy city of CT. Beautiful room and delicious breakfast. Great price vs quality balance. Will definately come back and recommend to friends/family!

Cape Standard have everything right – and then some. For sure there’s an abundance of great guest houses throughout Cape Town. But none of them have Margo, Jonathan or the amazing Paddington – who not only take a personal interest in every guest and are full of good advice but have an attention to detail that defies belief. In addition,...
