Scarlett waited for me until I arrived at 10.30 pm and greeted me with a smile. The room was clean, tidy, spacious and had everything I needed, and the bed was nice and comfy. I had a light breakfast with some fresh fruit that was delicious. Scarlett even let me leave my baggage after check-out time, while I go shopping...

I felt welcome at Cosimi Guest House, and my room was beautiful, comfortable and spacious. I loved the quirky cat-doorstops, and the fresh smell of very clean, fresh linen. This is a guesthouse where you definitely see the personal touch. I appreciated that there was real milk in the room, and in addition to the tea and coffee in the...

A personal experience, homely guest house. Ideal for staying at if on business in the area. Easy access to the main routes in and out of the CBD. The host (Scarlett) is very pleasant and ensures a comfortable stay.

I've stayed here a number of times in recent years when in Cape Town - and it's always a real joy - this is a 'home from home' as we sometimes say. Good food. Lovely clean, spacious rooms. Delightful host in Scarlett. Outside with the pool having been removed is a beautiful area in which to relax - comfy chairs,...

Scarlett is a wonderful, warm and friendly hostess who went out of her way to make me and the other guests feel at home; she willingly assisted me with requests I had. Everything was kept clean; lovely outside areas to relax with a glass of wine and magazine; nice cosy dining room, with excellent breakfast, whether continental or full English....

We were visiting on business and Scarlett the owner made our visit extremely pleasant. The breakfasts were incredible, setting / environment of the guest house was delightful. I would highly recommend this guesthouse for peace and quiet. Taxi was fairly reasonable into Cape Town from this location.

Scarlett was friendly and did all she could to make my stay enjoyable. In addition to coffee sachets and tea in the room, freshly brewed coffee and muffins were always available in the dining room. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. I appreciated the free wifi. The continental breakfast was more than ample.

If you want a clean place to stay, then this is the best for you (it is spotless). My least favorite part was the uptight rules,( not flexible. don't eat in the bedroom, the time for check out 10h00 if late by 1 hour disaster). The TV is really really small ( computer screen), if you love TV stay way....

Thank you for your review which was duly noted and appreciated. Our check-in time at 2pm and check-out time at 10 am are common practice in all types of accommodation in the hospitality industry. As a matter of fact, when we are not busy, we use some flexibility . On the other hand, if the room is booked by a...
