OMG. I have seen many guesthouses (pensions like we call it) but this one beats them all. I must have been one of the first that stayed in the new place. Perfect beds, large rooms, wifi, the whole building is full of design stuff. Fantastic breakfast and free smoothies and brilliant wine (a local find, Stanford Hills - worth checking them out also on a two hour drive to Stanford). Not to forget the rooftop, where you can see the Table Mountain and oversee the city plus harbor. Normally I stay at very good hotels, but next time I will definitely stay with Willy and Roderick. Thank you for a perfect experience!
I had a pleasant stay at 17 on Loader. The beds are comfy the rooms are relatively spacious and the environment is peaceful. I would definitely consider 17 on Loader again in the future and have already recommended it to some friends of mine. Thank you.
It's been a while since this trip but I just came across the photos and I wanted to give Dirk and his guest house the recognition it deserves . Let me start by saying its in an amazing location. Also it's a short walk from bars, restaurants, gyms, and the mighty waterfront ( where u take the ferry to Robbin Island)- u also have a view of Table Mountain( it's a gorgeous backdrop especially on the rooftop patio ) . It's clean , well- run, and it makes the African trip so much more " authentic " then just an ordinary hotel room . For the value , the location , the service .. U won't find better .
I had to cram 3 days & 2 nights of sightseeing, shopping and partying in cape town. 17 on loader was a great place to unwind after each day - Great location - walking distance from Long street, lovely view of table mountain and the city from the roof top... Would definitely go back...
