Having travelled to 75 countries, I have stayed in everything from the Hilton in Cairo, to pods in Tokyo but the Purple House in Cape Town is somewhere special, somewhere which becomes home rather than another faceless hotel. Within five minutes of arrival, we were relaxing on the roof terrace drinking tea overlooking Table Mountain. The room offered you space to relax either by watching television on the chez lounge or sinking into the bubbles in the perfect bathroom. The wine shop, ATM, local supermarket for nibbles or a range of restaurants are a one minute walk away in this lovely, lively but quiet part of Cape Town. Walk down or take a quick taxi ride to the waterfront.

 

Each morning, choose when you want your breakfast while awaking under the waterfall shower before choosing from a range of coffees and realising that a healthy breakfast (with a few naughty bits) really can taste good! Book Robben Island before on the net although it is not a highlight and contact the Purple House who will happily help you book any trips before you arrive with an excellent tour company. We recommend the Seal Island and the Cape of Good Hope trip along with a Township tour.

 

While this may read like a travel brochure, it really is that good. We arrived as strangers and left having two more friends in this world. The Purple House will make Cape Town for you.

Excellent accommodation close to both V&A Waterfront and city centre. Guido was a superb host and ensured that our stay was extremely enjoyable by his helpfulness and knowledge of the locality and the Cape Peninsula in general. I would recommend Purple House to anyone who wants to visit Cape Town and wants the kind of personal attention which the usual chain hotels simply cannot match. The accommodation is surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants which make it unnecessary to travel further afield at night. Extremely impressed.

 

Recommended Restaurant: Café Dijon

Thank you very much for being such great hosts! Even we missed our first night at your place because of a delayed flight from London you made the following two days to an unforgettable experience. Your service was very attentive and professional. You really have a cute place that we can recommend to anyone that is looking for a special accommodation with love to details. Thank you as well for the good talks we had! Will definitely remember those for a long time. Good luck and hopefully see you soon again! Melanie and Andrea

Purple house is perfectly situated for either business or holiday. Although it is a noisy area, we were not affected by any outside noises. Our hosts were amazing, very helpful and took care of all our needs. The breakfast was colourful and very tasty. I would definitely recommend The Purple House to my friends.

Very friendly and helpful. Gave us a lot of advice, things to do and not to do. Very relaxing at Purple House. Super area around. Quiet area but central to reach city centre + Waterfront.

Fantastic experience. I have been to close to 100 countries, and hundreds of hotels and have rarely, if ever, encountered such personal hospitality. The room also was good, and the visit overall wonderful.

Leider muss ich heute schon abreisen, aber ich habe im Purple House zwei wundervolle Tage verbracht. Die beiden Wirtsleute haben mich herzlich empfangen und haben sich bei allen Planungen helfend zur Verfügung gestellt, incl. Stadtplan, in den Sie die Sehenswürdigkeiten eintrugen.
Das sehr gepflegte Hau befindet sich in einer ruhigen Nebenstraße. Die Räume sind hell, mein Zimmer von großzügigem Zuschnitt, elegant eingerichtet. Auch das Bad ist sehr geräumig. Das Frühstück, leckeres Früchteyoghurt, frische Brötchen, frischer Kaffee, Eier nach Wunsch, wird in einem kleinen sehr gepflegten Garten serviert. Von da geht auch eine Wendeltreppe auf eine Dachterrasse mit großartigem Blick auf Viertel und Tafelberg.

Sehr nette und herzliche Inhaber! Bereits zur Ankunft wurden wir sehr freundlich empfangen! Das Zimmer war sehr schön und modern eingerichtet. Der Fußweg zur Waterfront ist kurz. Die Besitzer sind sehr fürsorglich und es hat Spaß gemacht sich mit ihnen zu unterhalten. Es hat uns hier sehr gut gefallen und wir würden auf alle Fälle wieder hierherkommen!

I can highly recommend the Purple Guesthouse. Henk and Guido are wonderful hosts. The room is spacious, modern, clean and so beautiful. The bathroom is great. There are a lot of excellent restaurants close to the Purple House. I look forward to coming back soon.
