"Acorn House review"
The staff were helpful and welcoming, providing advice and help when we needed it. Breakfast is excellent and varied. They only start serving at 8am, but were very accommodating in providing us an early breakfast and packed lunch when we had an early start.
There is a spacious lounge for relaxing in and a good choice or reasonable priced refreshment available" See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 3n in South Africa; 3n in Zimbabwe

A very good and quiet unit on the wall provided the A/C & heating. Both were needed when we were there! Very friendly and attentive staff who were able to help with information.

"Great location for the city"
We did use our car around the city as it is quite a walk - more on the way home than there (it's uphill) and easily found parking. Some guests didn't have a car but we were pleased we did as it meant we could get around at our pace/leisure rather than to an itinerary or a bus timetable.
That said where we used taxis they were reasonable." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa
Good, quiet location but not far away from Central Capetown. The staff were very nice, efficient and helpful in organising our activities and making restaurant bookings.
Highly recommended but best to have your own car." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa
"Acorn House Cape Town good."
For a 5 day stay a slog hotly bigger room would have been better but the staff, service and food more than compensated for size of room." See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa
