10/10 Exceptional

Lovely setting
We have stayed at this place for several years and are never disappointed!

Nice Place In the Mountains
While the cottage was very pretty and the grounds were beautiful, there could have been just a little more information on the lack of ANYTHING in the cottage. Yes there was a 1 X 2 inch bar of soap, but outside of that, there were no basics that you would assume: salt, pepper, sugar, coffee or tea. The explanation was that people tend to steal these things. However, on a brighter note, the cottage was immaculately cleaned daily and the security staff were very friendly. Overall a good experience, but they really need to step it up a bit.

Well maintained self catering accommodation
Our stay at Houtkapperspoort was relaxing and enjoyable. The only problem is the very slow wi-fi, but we understand this is being improved. The setting near Constantia, Table Mountain and Kirstenbosch Gardens is perfect.

Great location for visiting many area of Cape Town
It was a very quiet restful location. It was ike living amongst the French Alps. The cottage was great and we were astonished by the whole Cape experience . This is a must do thing for those of us to do as the real tourist sites are better than any photograph...and they drive on 'our ' side of the road !
