Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, South Africa
One of the major advantages of linking 3 Victorian terraced houses
is that the guest rooms are all generously proportioned with high
ceilings and solid walls. Now beautifully decorated in what the
owners refer to as restrained 'African Renaissance' style, all
rooms are ensuite, with kingsize beds (or twins if you
prefer) dressed in the softest white cotton percale linen. There
are nice, firm mattresses and good hot showers. Each room is
decorated individually with traditional Zulu wedding hats, funky
lighting and a careful application of colours ranging from subtle
creams to warm reds.
We stayed in one of the upper-floor Platinum Rooms - these are the largest rooms in the house yet they're eminently affordable. Those at the front have big private balconies with rattan furniture overlooking a quiet street; those at the rear have smaller balconies but good views of Table Mountain.
Of the cheaper rooms, Gold Rooms come with a bathtub and an overhead (or separate) shower. Although they don’t have balconies, some do still have views over the garden to Table Mountain. Silver Rooms are smaller and have showers only; most are on the first floor but there is one ground-floor room.
All rooms have a telephone, a flatscreen satellite TV, a security box, air-conditioning, free WiFi, a hairdryer and a tea/coffee station.
