My husband and I stayed at Sweet Olive during a recent business trip. We had a lovely stay and especially enjoyed having breakfast with the other guests. We were only sorry that we did not start the conversation earlier. Moreblessing and Getty gave us some wonderful german style muesli which we greatly enjoyed. I will recommend Sweet Olive to any...

As a family we do not want to sit at a table with strangers to have breakfast. It would have been appreciated if i could have enjoyed breakfast with my family and NOT a a at a table with a bunch of strangers, having to lean over them to get certain foods. DSTV should be included in the rate as...

We arrived at 9pm at night so the place was locked up. We called the number on the gate & someone arrived to check us in. We were worried about the street parking as it is a busy part of Seapoint and saw that as an immediate issue. I did ask the hotel when booking if there was off-street parking...

Stunning house, quirky décor, lovely outside setting for excellent breakfast, we liked the communal table which encourages people to chat. The room was small and very hot, the fan provided made so much noise that we didn't use it. Shower didn't drain properly - Memory said she would have it seen to.

My first time to stay at Sweet Orange Guesthouse. The room was very clean. The staff were very friendly. I will definitely stay there again. The break fast was very good as well. Absolutely good value for the money.

Thank you very much for your friendly hospitality for the two days we spend in Cape Town. It was good to have a save harbour in that unknown city. The nice garden with the little pool was very important for our little boy. Your breakfast was the best breakfast we have had on our whole South-Africa trip. We would come...

My husband and I spent 5 days at Sweet Orange. The location is great, the room was nice but we did not get the service expected.

Dear 896reneea, We thank you for your positive review as well as your personal comments and we are sure we can bring some light into the situation. As you booked via Hotels.com / Expedia your payment went directly to the online booking engine and therefore we never received your credit card details.
