Stopped over before doing a 5 day cycle tour through the Karoo. Everything was organised for us and we could just sit back and relax. Rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. Friendly hosts received us and made sure everything we needed was immediately sorted. Awesome place!

We stayed overnight on the 12th and 19th March this year i.e at the beginning and end of our MTB tour of the Karoo. I met, and spent some time with the hosts Robyn and Robin Shuttleworth, most friendly and interesting people. Summit place is set in the awesomely beautiful area of Constantia, and is itself a beautiful place.

This review may seem strange after all the excellent reviews and maybe the way they handled reducing the number of days we booked influenced us but we have been travelling to Cape Town every year for the past 15 years and stayed in a range of places so we can judge well.

A most pleasant stay. The management staff were superb - friendly, informative and helpful. The house, gardens and swimming pool are attractive and well cared for. We couldn't have asked for much more except the breakfast service was rather too slow. We would certainly stay there again
