The Cape Colonial provides its guests with an ideal location to discover and explore Cape Town and its surroundings.

Located in Gardens in Cape Town, this restored Victorian house  is just a  few minutes away from  the beautiful Company’s Garden . It is a central and safe location - perfect for guests who want to explore the city and its surroundings  on foot. Kloof Street, with its numerous  good restaurants and coffee/breakfast  shops,  is  just around the corner and offers a safe and enjoyable evening out.

Since we support our neighbourhood coffee shops with their excellent breakfast options (some offering breakfast as early as 6.45am) the Cape Colonial does not serve breakfast.

We do however have coffee and tea making facilities and offer a mid-morning muffin or home made banana bread with coffee or tea to set you off on a wonderful day in our beautiful city .

Also nearby is the Mount Nelson stop for the highly-recommended city sightseeing tour as well as public transport to the Waterfront, Hout Bay etc.

Accommodation at The Cape Colonial
Built in 1896, the house itself is a beautiful and painstakingly restored Victorian semi-detached retaining many of its original features such as embossed ceilings, stained-glass windows and polished wooden floors.

Our 6 tastefully-appointed rooms are furnished in colonial style in keeping with the house’s Victorian origins. They are all ensuite with showers (one has a bath with hand-shower) and have tea/coffee making facilities. Free WiFi is available throughout the house. Four are double rooms and two are twins, including the Zebra Room, our most spacious room with its own balcony.

We arrange airport transfers on request as well as tours to the major local attractions such as Cape Point, the Winelands and, in season, whale watching and the West Coast wild flowers. Please don’t hesitate to ask us for tips on these attractions .

We are also happy to make restaurant reservations for you.

Wireless internet is available throughout the house. Laundry service is also available.
