Went on a short trip from London for a wedding so had 3 nights there. What a great find - nothing too much trouble for the team and great atmosphere and location. Good local restaurants were recommended and one night the hotel helped us get a take away delivered while they chilled the wine we'd just bought out in the...

We stayed here for four nights at the end of our tour of South Africa. Yes, it certainly lived up to it's reputation. Steffi met us the door and guided us to drinks on the terrace, whilst our luggage was delivered to our rooms. Bliss. The decor of the rooms were lovely, but it's the attention to detail that makes...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our SA holiday. We booked the 2Inn1 based on reviews from TripAdvisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were treated like guests staying at a friends house rather than just another anonymous hotel client. Every single member of staff we came across was absolutely delightful and everyone went out of...

We stayed at 2Inn1 at the beginning of November for 4 nights and it was completely fabulous. As two mature/old women we are used to being overlooked or ignored, not so here! Having just stepped off the plane in the early morning and driven to the hotel we were met by Klaus with a very welcome drink and whilst waiting...

I have just returned from a week's stay at 2inn1 and can truly say that it is the best hotel in which I have stayed......ever. From the moment I was greeted at the gate on arrival, and my bag taken from the car, I was made to feel so very welcome. This was a feeling which would last my entire...

3rd stay at 2inn1 and only keeps getting better. This place is genuinely one of a kind, and I doubt you find a better guest house anywhere in the world. Totally unsurpassed, Klaus, Chris, Steffi and Claire are the best hosts you could ever wish for. They are kind and genuine and incredibly hard working, and bend over backwards to...

I took my boyfriend on a surprise birthday holiday to Cape Town and stumbled across the hotel on this website. I was so impressed with the reviews that I booked it immediately even though it was out of my price range - I was lucky to be offered the last luxury room. (And once there I could see the demand...

My husband I ended our African holiday here at 2Inn1. Cape town was most definitely a surprise. We found it charming, yet metropolitan with a San Fransisco feel. Here we found beautiful coastline with the magnificent table mountain above. 2Inn1 is in the perfect location. Our room upstairs had an awesome view and cozy little sitting area from which to...
