The morning mist lifts and Table Mountain towers above in all its glory . . . Derwent House stirs to the fragrant aromas of our sumptuous breakfast and the promise of another beautiful day in the heart of Cape Town.

You’re at the centre of the glorious rush that is this magical city – yet nestled in the comfort and serenity of your luxurious base camp in a quiet residential neighbourhood at the foot of Table Mountain, steps away from happening Kloof Street . . . where else could you be?

It’s the Derwent House difference – come see for yourself!

Derwent House is one of Cape Town’s leading boutique guesthouses. Housed in a quaint, converted Victorian era residence in the heart of the vibrant Tamboerskloof/Gardens neighbourhood, this small hotel combines historic charm, contemporary Afro-chic style and all mod-cons for a uniquely Capetonian blend of ambience, warmth and comfort.

We love colour and celebrate African design – you’ll find it everywhere. But when it comes to the basics – like breakfast, bedding, showers, climate control, Wi-fi or news from home – we don’t compromise so you don’t have to.

Your room is compact, but complete. But why stay in? Enjoy our generous public areas: spend your summer evenings with a complimentary aperitif before dinner on the terrace poolside . . . or chilly winter evenings by the cosy wood-burning stove in the lounge. Soak up the sun by our solar-heated pool . . . or make friends at our self-serve Honesty Bar–let us introduce you to unique local wine varietals or some of South Africa’s best craft beers. Enjoy a custom-mixed manager’s cocktail while picking up tips about where to eat or what to see and do tomorrow . . . And so much more.

Coming to Cape Town? You don’t need a hotel – you need Derwent House!
