This guesthouse is welcoming and offers seamless, unobtrusive service. Sandra and Philip offer attention to detail and personalised touches - making your stay comfortable, pleasurable and good value is their focus. Forgotten your cell phone charger? Dip into the basket and you're sure to find one you can borrow. As a training and meeting venue it is a blessing - Sandra will accommodate any and all dietary requirements without the usual twice as pricey but half as nice as ordinary food. Philip happily re-organises furniture to suit your room set-up requirements. The garden and sun room offer tranquil spaces in which to have refreshments and conversations. Well-located in terms of distance of travel from various areas of Cape Town and surrounds. Excellent neighbourhood restaurants within safe walking distance. Highly recommended for hospitality, convenience and value.

I have been to Brooklands House many times and found the establishment charming and the owners delightful. Decorated in the manner of a grand Victorian home, the sense of glorious yesteryear is never far away. The food on offer is always delicious and the wine comes from a connoisseur's cellar. Recommended wholeheartedly, especially if you need to be near UCT or Newlands sports stadium.

I have stayed at Brooklands House on 2 occasions now and have loved both of them! The personal attention that Sandra and Philip give on both occasions has made me feel totally at home and wanting to stay for longer. The House itself is wonderful - you feel like you're staying in an English Manor House in Britain and not sitting in SA, accommodation very comfortable - so comfortable in fact that I haven't wanted to go out to my meetings when I've been in CPT! Breakfasts are delicious and the access to Cape Town makes it very convenient - just far enough out of the city to be away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to all amenities that CPT provides. I have no hesitation in recommending Brooklands House, and look forward to returning there.
