Spent 2 nights at Oxford House with no prior knowledge. Seemed cheap compared with alternatives in the same area so we wondered how it would be but were pleasantly surprised. The night receptionist was lovely and welcoming. The rooms were very large and comfortable (nice pod coffee machine too!). It's on a relatively quiet street running up the hill, but...

Oxford House is an awesome place to stay. Central to everything. Walking distance from Green Point Stadium to ideal to stay for concerts. Quiet, well equipped and just an overall pleasure. We will definitely be back!

The place was great. It was a walking distance from V&A Water front and it was easily accessible for cabs to find. I stayed in another hotel before and I was completely unsatisfied but Oxford house was a pleasure to stay in.

Awesome service from Jeanine who handled our last minute request for a taxi from the cruise terminal. Check in was quick, easy and hassle free. Jeanine gave us valuable and helpful information of the surroundings and services. This property is a 10 minute walk to the V&A Waterfront. There was some construction work happening on the adjacent property so it...

This is a clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Good value for money and centrally located. It is not a luxury resort hotel, but if you need an affordable, pleasant and clean place with comfortable beds to use as a base for discovering Cape Town, it is perfect. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity.
