    Beautiful cozy old quest house with large rooms and bathrooms. Kettle, TV and hairdryer in the room. Friendly staff and management. Excellent breakfast. Walking distance from the Sea point Promenade. V&A Waterfront Cape Town few blocks away. Had a lovely 2 day stay.

    Hello Jacqueline, Thank you for you review, we can't make everybody happy. All guests that book that room like it very much even though it's not the biggest room in the house. They even book it for long stays up to three weeks.

    Thank you for your review Seapoint is quite busy and parking is always minimal.

    Good location for city centre, V&A and bus route to Camps Bay, etc. Quiet peaceful stay, comfortable room with all amenities, friendly staff. Only criticism would be the speed of service for breakfast on second morning.
