The location is 10 mins walk from Waterfront and 10 mins to great restaurants locally. This hotel is very clean, modern and facilities are good. They have a large lounge area with drink and food service. You can also order drinks for around the pool area. Local taxis cost a small fee to take you to a Waterfront if you...

Location is great, near Seapoint and close to nice restaurants and shops. Very friendly and helpful personell. Standard Rooms are tiny. Next time we would choose a bigger room. Lovely Garden with a pool.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hotel staff was wonderful and had great suggestions on restaurants as well as activities. We loved the location and found we could walk or bus to most spots.

We stayed at Villa Zest for three nights at the start of a two week trip in South Africa. It was just the perfect choice. Great location - a short walk from the waterfront and beautifully appointed. Our room was huge with an amazing bath and separate shower. The garden / pool area was perfect after a day exploring the...

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in October and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Tracey and her staff were extremely welcoming and nice. I did communicate with Tracy via email before our arrival to get some advice regarding our plans in Cape Town and I was always receiving quick and valuable responses. Eventually she booked a...

Lovely hotel with amazing staff. They really couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Great wifi in the public places. Only downside is they are building a block of flats overlooking the pool. But TBH there is no where in Sea Point or Green Point that isn't!

We were highly impressed by Villa Zest even before arriving. Tracey the owner helped us with questions about transport and restaurants and provided the warmest of welcomes. Our room on the swimming pool level was beautifully laid out with a small but pleasant bathroom. With only a few guest rooms we enjoyed the tranquility (even though there was building work...

We are staying 5 days here while we explore Cape Town. Aside from a great location, proximity to great restaurants, the Whart and other attractions, the best thing about this place is the staff!! It is obvious Ms. T Steenkamp sets the tone and culture of this place - from the front staff to the housekeeping staff - everyone is...

Used Villa Zest as a base for a work trip. Location very convenient for the Waterfront. Friendly staff, clean rooms of a good size and with a comfortable bed. Lovely breakfast also. Couldn't have asked for better for the price.
