Acorn House Review

I cannot think of anything negative to say about Acorn House. From the moment we arrived Stewart and his staff were fantastic. Stewart sat us down and asked what we wanted to do. He came up with great suggestions. He took care of restaurants, trip tickets and car bookings and general information about Cape Town.

Great Deli on the corner. The Hop On Hop Off bus stop about a 15minute walk away. He gave us the number of cab company to use. Breakfast wonderful, lots of home made goodies, honesty bar.

It was like staying at a friend's home. I would certainly recommend it.

Acorn House review

Outstanding guest house where staff could not be more helpful. Their assistance made the holiday.

Ideally situated if you do not want to be in the centre of the city. Car hire advisable with easy access to main places in area. Breakfast very good.

The staff are first class and would highly recommend this place.

Superb Accommodation and Service

Our stay at Acorn House exceeded our expectations and although we expected a small room ( the literature says this ) we were given a bungalow with extra space and a lounge area. It was really comfortable and quite luxurious.

We only had a few days in Cape Town so we had to limit our trips but two we wanted to do were visiting Cape Point and going up Table Mountain. Stewart at Acorn House helped us with a trip to Cape Point at really short notice because the weather seemed good down there and it proved to be a superb trip. We managed to go up Table Mountain when the "tablecloth" cleared and dashed up there immediately after breakfast . Acorn House tried to get us on line tickets but they were sold out however we made it up there early and the queue was only 35 minutes ! Great. You should have seen the queue on our way back down at least 3 hours waiting time for the cable car. We walked back from the cable car station to Acorn House and this was a really pleasant walk. The coffee shop/café ( Carlucci`s ) at the end of the road almost opposite Acorn House is really good by the way.
Nelson`s Eye restaurant is within walking distance and excellent for steaks but we found the service a bit lacking. Still a good meal however.

I had arranged with Acorn House to meet us at the airport and this worked like clockwork.

All told we absolutely loved Acorn House and would not hesitate in recommending this to other travellers and if we ever return to Cape Town would certainly stay there again.

Your home away from home in Cape Town

No detail is too small for the staff at Acorn House...Everything is done to make your stay wonderful, from day trip ideas to restaurant reservations to knowing your favorite breakfast to the small touches in your room....the list goes on.

We especially loved the quiet neighborhood, yet you are five minutes from downtown. I can't imagine that there is a better place to stay in Cape Town.

Acorn House review

The Acorn House is a older B and B located near the base of Table top Mountain. Anyone wanting to be near the main tourist areas like V and A Waterfront may want to think about a closer location.

The service was wonderful and the staff very nice. The only negative was the beds were very uncomfortable, too hard with no mattress pad.

Whilst in Cape Town, we organised for them a private half-day City Tour, and a private tour to Cape Point and the Peninsula.
They commented:
:

Loved the Cape Town city tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and were impressed with everything we saw. Loved the museum.

The Cape Point tour was the highlight of our visit to Cape Town. Then coast was very dramatic and the point beautiful. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.

Acorn House review

Delightful facility with wonderful staff, great food very good location. The only service we used was dining reference which was excellent.

Little taxi problem which I attended to (long way to wrong destination, not an Acorn problem). They had good wine at reasonable price in house by bottle.

Acorn House was great - very helpful staff

It was like having our own concierge - the staff were really great at helping us plan our time in Capetown, book restaurants for us, ring the hire car company when we had a problem etc.

The only downside was that it was a little way to the nearest restaurants - so while we could walk there, we had to take a taxi back when it was dark. Lovely area though.

Room was lovely although no air con and was the room got pretty hot when the weather was nice.
