Set in the trendy De Waterkant area, this small establishment is probably best known for its roof top bar with plunge pool and unbeatable 360 degree views of Table Mountain, the ocean and city centre. The bar is only open during the summer months and is frequently rented out for private functions, however the owners won’t mind if you take your drink upstairs to soak up some sunshine and mountain views out of the summer season. There are 14 small-ish rooms to choose from, and some open up onto private interior balconies. With space at a premium, the en-suite bathrooms all have showers but no baths. Soho Thai is the on-site Thai food restaurant and next door the extravagantly decorated “Madame’s” restaurant also belongs to the hotel, where guests can enjoy a Sunday roast during Winter.

Unless someone has a specific reason to be in Cape Town (for which they need to be in a particular area), de Waterkant is always the suburb I suggest for accommodation. It’s full of restaurants and bars; it’s cobblestoned and colourful; it’s safe; and it’s seriously stylish. It’s kind of at the epicentre of ‘things to do’, and is walking distance from the CBD. The Village Lodge portfolio consists of a few types of accommodation styles and is spread out over a few blocks. The B&B has quaint sitting areas and a small pool, which everyone staying at Village can use. There’s also a spacious rooftop area with a view over the harbour and a massive outdoor fireplace (love!). The luxury rooms are more modern and would make a fabulous bachelor pad – I’d love to stay here if on a long business stay. The people are also super friendly.Recommended for:Business Travelers
