Villa Zest makes it feel like you're staying with your ultra-cool, best friends from Cape Town. Easy walking distance to the V&A Waterfront and Long Street. Quick taxi to Table Mountain and Camps Bay. Definitely recommend this place.

This was the first place we stayed on our recent trip to SA. It set the bar high. It's a lovely, small, well presented boutique. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Well done Janese and the team.

We stayed at Villa Zest and can only offer words of praise for the experience. The staff are wonderful -- they made you feel like family, not guests. The rooms are lovely and very clean. I swear we could've eaten the delicious breakfast off the floor eveything was so clean. And the location can't be beat either. Thanks again Villa...

This was one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at! The room was modern and trendy yet still very plush and comfortable. The service (even at midnight when I arrived) was top notch offering me a welcome cocktail and preparing a very reasonably priced sandwich at 1:30 am. Breakfast was delicious and the owner was so accommodating. I had...

This is a nice hotel with very friendly and helpful staff (including Gilbert, the night porter); and excellent breakfasts. The rates are good value, particularly when they include extras such as a hire car (ready & waiting when we arrived) and champagne & cakes left in our room on my birthday. The location is good. Close to the busy Somerset...

We arrived in Cape Town late at night after two long flights, and this could not have been a better place to begin our vacation in South Africa and Namibia. Our room was very large, beautifully designed and comfortable. We loved the breakfasts in the bright dining room/ living room. We want to thank the whole staff for a memorable...

Beautiful boutique hotel- have never met friendlier or more helpful staff, who went far beyond the call of duty to help and by the end felt more like friends than staff. Loved my stay here!
