Great location for the city

We wanted to stay in Cape Town but also wanted a small personal guest house rather than a hotel. Acorn House did not disappoint. The welcome on arrival was lovely and throughout our stay the owner and staff made sure our trip was going to plan. They recommended and booked evening meals for us to our choice. We stayed for four nights which gave us the time to see the parts of Cape Town on our 'list' and leaves us with a few more for another trip.

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.

Super B&B

We really liked our stay of 5 nights here.

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.

Excellent position - very helpful staff

We were happy with everything at Acorn House apart from the rooms being slightly small and the floor fan struggled to keep the room cool.

We highly recommend to others.

Acorn House Cape Town good.

Excellent and very helpfully staff.

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.

Another excellent stay at Acorn House

This was our second stay at Acorn House. I asked for this guest house specifically - there is no better commendation. My son and girlfriend also stayed there earlier in the year.

Perfect location, very friendly and helpful.

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.
