I stayed in Cape Town for a conference in Feb 2012. Staying at Villa Zest was by far the best decision I made. Every single person I met while at the hotel was incredibly helpful and friendly. I have nothing bad to say about the hotel. It's very well located. The rooms are very cool, the breakfast is amazing and...

This lovely boutique Hotel has it all. The location is good because you are in between the city and the waterfront area and close to public transport.

We stayed at the Villa Zest on two occasions on our recent visit to SA. Our stay there was perfect. The team of girls running it are first class. They couldn't be more helpful. They are so enthusiastic it was a joy to ask their opinion on places to visit or go out to eat. They even offered me a...

We loved Villa Zest, its gorgeous, in a great location and perfectly clean but what really stands out is the service, from breakfast throughout the day the team couldn't be more helpful. Wish we were back there right now!

Michelle and all her staff are extraordinarily pleasant, helpful and capable. They helped with all our questions and needs, making reservations and recommending places to go and see. The only problem is we have to leave.

Friendly staff, sumptuous breakfast, nice and spacious room. Can walk to the waterfront area restaurant and attractions, but secluded and private property. Free parking. Overall a very pleasant experience

We stayed here for our last night in Cape Town. The service we received was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel is small and in a quiet location just a short taxi ride from the waterfront. We would recommend this hotel

We stayed for 2 nights in September at the end of our 2 week trip. Great to relax, 20mins walk from V & A waterfront. Very trendy but comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, excellent breakfast.
