I hate travel ... business travel. This time it was Cape Town. I have asked to be booked into Somerset West and arrived at Ivory Heights.

Total focus on customer service, made this the best place we stayed in South Africa. 30mins drive outside the centre of Cape Town, this Guesthouse has great rooms, masses of hot water, amazing breakfasts and the best hosts I have encountered in a while. The gardens are great, views of the mountains are breathtaking. Recommend this place 100%.

Arriving at the hotel, after a long and tiresome journey, we felt immediately at home and relaxed at the reception. This was better than ever experienced. The room, looking out at the pool, was exellent and the bathroom equiped with everything you could think of. Really first class and certainly worth the 5 stars.

The team of HPCA had the most amazing time at Ivory Heights, you cannot possibly begin to describe the service, friendliness, cleanliness of rooms as well as the rest of the guest house, conference facilities ... it's really not possible to put in words, you need to go there and experience it for yourself.

The environment is first class--from the sweeping staircase in the vestibule, to the beautifully equipped lounge and bar areas. This is unmistakenly a boutique hotel -with unique features. My room -the Diamond- was very...
