Cape Dutch Quarter was one of the most famous places we have been during our 3 weeks holiday in South Africa.

TV was out of order. No signal. Reported the problem. Nothing was done about it. Lovely room and good breakfast.
Rating: Reviewed by Helgardt Botha over a year ago
The room was beautiful. However there was a light bulb missing from the fitting above the mirror, we only discovered late. A problem was also the breakfast - supposed to be from 8-10am. At 8:10 there still was no one in the kitchen. When the staff did appear the one was rude to me. We left without staying for our paid breakfast.
