We stayed with our 5-year old at Six on Scott, and really enjoyed it. The house is just beautiful, the rooms well furnished and the location really good, as it's close to several Cape Town landmarks (e.g. Company's Gardens). We had no issues parking our car in the street, right in front or a few meters away from the B&B....

We stayed for 3 nights recently. We had the family room upstairs as my husband and I had our 3 year old with us. The room was adequate and comfortable and very clean. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had small portions of everything and fresh coffee and it was all more than enough. The only issue we...

Lovely room! Very clean, bed comfortable, beautiful bathrooms. Great spot if you're in the city. Very close to company gardens, truth coffee and other city favourites. Lots of parking available (on street). They need to upgrade their credit card payment method. A speedpoint with chip card pin facilities.

Dear Rozanne, thank you so much for your positive feedback. We´re glad you enjoyed your short stay with us. Regarding your suggestions with the credit card payments we are actually currently busy looking into other, a bit more "modern" options. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regard Anne

Our group of 7 recently stayed at Six on Scott for 3 nights (we occupied 3 of the 5 available rooms, 2 on the top floor and one on the bottom), which is very well situated near the center of Cape Town. On the whole, we greatly enjoyed our stay. Upon our arrival around noontime, we were greeted by Samantha,...

I love the place and how tastefully designed and furnished it is. the bathrooms are brand new high tech and there is a lot of attention to detail that far surpasses expectations especially if compared to price. My only complaint is the level of noise produced by the wooden stairs connecting the floors. When we went as a couple we...

We were welcomed very warmly by Anne, the owner of the guest house. The breakfast had a good variety and our room was nice with a safe, the bathroom had a really big rainwater shower. You can park in the street without fees and walk to Company's Gardens. To the Waterfront it take you about an hour to walk.

First of all, the location of the Guesthouse is perfect and in walking distance to the city centre and tourist attractions. The airport pick-up was arranged by the staff and paid when we arrived at the Guesthouse. After a warm welcome, we were brought to the room. As we were a family, 3 of us, we booked the Superior Family...

The perfect place to stay in Cape Town. The guesthouse is beautifully decorated and is located close to the companys gardens and in walking distance to everything. The managers and straff always does everything to make your stay the best possible. Traveled the whole garden route and Six on Scott Guesthouse is definitely something special and worth the visit.
