Ashanti Guest Houses are home to all the en-suite rooms that have evolved from the main lodge of Ashanti Backpackers. They are located around the corner from the backpackers and our guests are welcome to use all the facilities of the main lodge, yet have the comfort and tranquility of these two beautiful Victorian homes to sleep in.
Each house has been decorated to exacting standards and all rooms are equipped with satellite television, private bathrooms, digital safes and a tea/coffee station. Each house also has its own well-equipped self catering kitchen and of course there is unlimited free wi-fi for everyone`s use.
Both houses have been extensively refurbished with new soft furnishings and beds in May 2012 and are in pristine condition. Remember - check-in is at Main Lodge.
Cancellation of a booking must be made in writing (via email) and will only take effect once such cancellation has been received. The 1st night stay deposit paid will be non refundable, however we will refund any other monies paid provided that the reservation is cancelled/amended prior to 14 days before arrival. If cancelled within 14 days – no refunds will be given.
When driving from the Cape Town airport or coming from the Garden Route, just continue along the N2 towards Cape Town city centre. Please make sure you follow directions to Cape Town as we have had newcomers go in the wrong direction.
Continue on the N2 for about 10 minutes and as you come up to the mountain keep right and continue towards the city - following the signs. Take the De Waal Drive turn-off to the left when the road forks and continue driving around the mountain.
Just off De Waal Drive you need to take the Mill Street turn-off. This will take you past a large shopping centre (Gardens Centre) on your left hand side and then you drive through two sets of traffic lights.
The next road left (after the second set of lights at Upper Orange Street) is Hof St. It is just before the Mount Nelson hotel, so if you see that you know you have gone too far. We are two blocks up on the left hand side – a large yellow building.
We have double, twin and triple rooms available.
Triple room with 3 single beds. All rooms are equipped with cable tv (DSTV) and unlimited free WiFi and tea/coffee station. Spacious en-suite bathrooms (showers only) and shared self catering kitchen.
Double room with 1 double bed. All rooms are equipped with cable tv (DSTV) and unlimited free WiFi and tea/coffee station. Spacious en-suite bathrooms (showers only) and shared self catering kitchen.
Twin room with 2 single beds. All rooms are equipped with cable tv (DSTV) and unlimited free WiFi and tea/coffee station. Spacious en-suite bathrooms (showers only) and shared self catering kitchen.
