The guest house is in a great location in Green Point, an easy 20 minute walk (or quick cab ride) to the Waterfront and very close to good restaurants at Seapoint. The common areas are absolutely lovely and a great place to relax at the end of a day's sight seeing. If the weather is nice, the breakfast tables are...

Wonderful bed and breakfast with a breezy relaxed atmosphere, lovely breakfast, and very enthusiastic and helpful staff. Our room looked out into the beautiful garden, and had a shower with a view. Loved the relaxed background music in the lounge.

Swedish family, of 6 persons from 12 - 70 years. Cape Standard was a great experience. After 1 week in bungalos and African safari-places in Zimbabwe and Botswana it was perfect to land in just Cape Standard. Cool, clean, fresh design with well chosen special interior objects. This is the perfect place if you want a nice clean and quiet...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a great base being only a 20 minute walk from the Waterfront. Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed and had everything we needed. Breakfast was very good and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It was so nice to come back to port, sherry and nibbles after an...

Super friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully decorated little guesthouse in safe & quiet neighbourhood. Excellent breakfast. Not cheap, but def. worth the price. Good 20 min. walk to the Waterfront. Some building noise because of reshaping of pool area

This place was our first b&b on our honeymoon to SA - and it was a great choice. The breakfast was wonderful - one of the best we had in the trip and the rooms were very big and very clean and the decor was lovely. Margot was extremely helpful with recommendations and with helpful tips. The only comment I...

We recently stayed at Cape Standard for a full week. The staff were amazing - very professional & nothing was too much trouble. It's quite a walk to the City Bowl or V & A Waterfront, so best to hire a car. Pleasant gardens and surroundings in a safe area.

I stayed only 1 night. This hotel doesn't look much from the outside but you will be suprised. It's beautiful, very clean, has lovely breakfast and great staff too. Nice neighbourhood as well, it wasn't difficult to find from the waterfront. My room was quite cosy though I could hear people arriving or walking past my door, the bed very...
